F. A. Thorp

In the late 1950, F. A. Thorp, a Houston luthier who made violins, also built several guitars, some with DeArmond pickups.  One instrument which appears to be an undersize solid electric guitar with one Model 41 pickup.  For more information see the site below:

Some of Thorp’s instruments were mistakenly attributed to Jim Harvey at one time.
