Genuine Rogers 3-star brand calf skin

Posted by jbalch on Sunday, November 17, 2013

 

I'm mounting this genuine Rogers 3-star Brand hide for a BHO member.  It is thin and very fine. More photos to come...

So what is the story on the unmounted skin with the Rogers brand mark? David E.

Yes. This is a genuine old Rogers hide. It is going on a 1929 Gibson Granada conversion.

The owner found this hide on eBay. I've only seen one other unmounted Rogers skin. I was pleased to have the opportunity to work with this one.

John did the head mount with its age like any other? David E.

Very appropriate.

The hide mounted normally. But it is not a supple as a fresh one. I dont think the "glue" itself as firmly as a new fresh skin.

I am unsure about the stretch factor. This is going on an archtop. I tried to set the crown low ... but am afraid it might pull up.
