  • Does anyone know where one of these are

    I would like to find any of these guitars that are out there. They were sold in the Southeast Missouri, Cape Girardeau, area and a few in St Louis. My email is;

    What's the story on these? That is one cool picture. Is it your Grandpa or something? What is the name on the Headstock?

      Yes, that is my grandfather. The headstock says CARAKER, his name was Jim Caraker. Each guitar is numbered, and dated, on a piece of paper inside. He made about 80 guitars before he passed away in 1978. Most were 7 string, 2 little E strings, acoustics arch tops with laminated tops like the picture. He did make a couple of electrics and a few dual necks. He also made mandolins, photo attached, and violins. We have found 3 madolins but no guitars have surfaced, Thanks for the interest. I have many great memories of helping him in his basement and playing with him.

      My grandfather also cut records in a make shift studio he had in his upstairs. Recently we found that first record that Billy Swan ever cut while having all his 78 speed records convereted to Cd's. A mutual friend gave it to Billy. He was actually my neighbor in the late 50's.
