Le Domino from before 1960
I have my grandfathers Le Domino soprano, he had it before I was born, but I don't know much more than that. It is maple colored with the Le Domino logo on the head and dominos decal circling the sound hole, 3 red diamonds with black outlines on the frets, black and metal pegs and a black bridge. I also have the original case (economo gieb chicago) and sheet music trademarked 1938.
I have really happy memories of him playing and singing songs to me as a child. And I know he went to Hawaii at least 4 times in the 60's and 70's. He loved Hawaii so much, he sent both my grandmothers twice in the early 70's. He would comeback and tell me stories and sing and play songs he learned.
