Old Kraftsman Music Note acoustic guitar

Here's an Old Kraftsman Music Note guitar which the seller claims is from sometime between the 1940s and 1950s but can't be more specific. The design does look a little Art Deco which would imply even earlier - you'd certainly think that by the 1950s the visuals would have moved on by then.

Still, it's a charming piece, constructed from birch and with a neck attached by three bolts. Old Kraftsman guitars were manufactured by the Kay Musical Instrument Company based in Chicago for the catalogue retailer Spiegel.
