1939 Slingerland May Bell Nighthawk


Top of the line arched top Guitar. Looks all original but has some pick marks by the guard plate cover.

Fancy fretboard inlay and the headstock reads “NiteHawk”. Below

shows “Maybelle” with some ornate colors.

It measures 16 1/2 at the lower bout. This exceptional instrument was produced in 1939. This beauty would make a great Jazz guitar, with F-holes. I just tried it and it sounds good, but I would change strings and set it up

It reminds me of the J-55 guitar.
