    For those of us who are always searching for minutiae concerning the earliest 6122 Country Gentleman models, I've been wondering
    recently, what serial number would have been the first to convert over from a 25.5 inch scale length, to the 24.6 inch. From earlier
    research I have found that #26405 still had the 25.5 inch scale, and I'm not sure on #26406 or any that came after it. I know there
    are some of our members who have very early serial numbered 6122's, so perhaps they can shed some more light on this. CG Front.jpg Headstock%20Front[1].jpg

    Unless all of the early ones are documented, it would be hard to say definitively what the first one with the shorter scale was. But going from distant memory, I do recall seeing one from the early teens, maybe 26413, give or take. But there may have been short scale examples before it, or long scale examples after it.
