Scotus subway guitars info? (15) RE: subway guitars info? 03 Feb 06

The latest on this is that I phoned Fatdog at the end of last week and he gave me the choice of an Oahu or a Lakeside. The Oahu he played to me over the phone !? and it sounded quite good, however he described the Lakeside (which wasn't strung up so couldn't be played to me) and it seemed like a better instrument. The cost for that is $600 and I'd paid a deposit of $300 already - he asked for the balance plus $20 for mailing and said he'd be able to send it this coming Tuesday. He is checking it over and setting it up before sending it. I will have two weeks to send it back if I don't like it.

The Lakeside has oak back and sides and a spruce top. It's small bodied, has a slot head, a triangular neck and has some 'nice' inlay. I've looked for them on the internet and there isn't much, however it seems they were made for or by Lyon and Healy between 1910 and 1920.

Can anybody tell me anything about them?

I'll continue to keep y'all posted.
