The museum purchased the Broadway s/n 5053 March 2012 online from Kennard Machol of Intermountain Guitar & Banjo, Salt Lake City. Kennard wrote us:

“ I got the broadway from a good friend of mine, who is basically a mandolin guy, in a trade for an instrument that I had, I don’t know anything of the history of it other than Chris Berkov, a very fine west coast luthier, did a neck set on it, that is all I know. ”

May 2013 the guitar was brought in for repair at the workshop of Gitaarwerk  where a new natural finish was applied on the back and sides and a new vintage correct wrapped over trapeze tailpiece made by the late John Lambdin was installed.
