I recently got called in to sort out a CS 54 from 96 with a maple top. Quite a stunning instrument.
Nothing major at all, just a bit of a setup and get it playing properly.
However We saw a couple of names written clearly on the guitar. The neck has O.Palleres
The trem cavity has O.Ambrossi stamped in it, from what I can make out.
The owner would like some more info on these people, if possible. Also he'd like to know what pickups were likely fitted to the guitar. I thought 57/62's given the sound of the guitar. I just dont know though and the owner didnt ask me till I got it back together.
Thankyou for any info.
