HEPWORTH D12-28. (pre-1968 )
I bought this in Sheffield, England in 1968 from a barman at a gig. He was short of cash and I wasn’t, so I got it for 75 pounds ( English pre-Euro ).
In the fashion of the time, this is tuned down a whole tone, and usually capo’d up to concert pitch. A huge tone, very reminiscent of Leadbelly. Unamplified.
Modifications: Original machine heads replaced with nacre “ butterfly” ones, and an upper scratch plate added.
