And The Model Is?

From the RRF mailbox an interested party would love to know if this is a Rickenbacker and if so what model. Let the game begin.

It sure looks like a Rick, kind of like a model TW, but with more squared off corners and 3 knobs instead of 2.

Doesn't look like it has legs though, I wonder of it's got leg sockets on the bottom...
I have NO idea what to do with those skinny stringed things... I'm just a bass player...

It's probably a CW, the forerunner of the Jerry Byrd.

Yes it has leg sockets on the bottom. I will try to post some more photos. I also felt it was a step or two before the Jerry Byrd.
