Hayman 2020 with f-holes

This is a Hayman 2020 guitar, a rare model with f-holes. I'm guessing from its bolt-on neck design it's more of a "thinline" rather than a semi-acoustic, although it's hard to say from the photographs alone.

The guitar was designed by Jim Burns and would have been produced in the UK in the early 1970s before the distribution deal with Dallas Arbiter finished and the Shergold brandname replaced Hayman.

Note the glass(?) "H" logo inset into the headstock. This is what was missing from the hole in the headstock of the left-handed Hayman 4040 bass we looked at in October.
