The one in the "wedding" picture is not the Rex though Elbert: I looked at 10-12 pictures of this guitar, and there is not one that shows the Head in clear view. The machine heads do not appear to be Gretch, and there's that cost thing again, this was 1958 remember.

I thought possibly Framus also, but have no thing to substantive that , other than having one way back when and it looking familiar


It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......
