I have a 1930's or 1940's "May Bell" that has a great sound considering it was a cheap guitar sold in stores in rural areas back then. Made by the "Slingerland" factory.

the fret board and headstock are covered in cream celuloid, the frets are brass, a complete piece of crap that sounds great. Unbelievable but true.
