    Here's another mystery that walked in through the door at my music store. It has a small brass looking plaque over the hole that says Custom Built by Lafraz. Not sure I can figure out how to post pics here but will give it a look. It's 14 x 6 1/2, a metal ( steel ) shell 10 lug the strainer throw off and the other end that holds the strainer attachment both appear to be Ludwig. I'd be happy for any info. mystery1.jpg mystery2.jpg mystery3.jpg

    you can email info@mossmanmusic.com if you have any info on this
    thx
    peace,
    Don

    It appears to be a painted Ludwig Supra-Phonic but if it's magnetic then the shell is (almost certainly) something else. Most likely the customizer added the badge.

    Mossman's Music? As is Norwalk, OH? As a lad I passed up the deal of a lifetime there because I had no chance of coming up with $200. (readers), it was a Rogers 20/12/14 Mardi-Gras with beavertail lugs. AAUUUGGGHHH!!!

    Truly the one the got away...
