It's an L-50.

Ack. The trapezoid inlay may actually indicate it's something other than an L-50.

Nevermind - later L-50s had trapezoid inlay. I stand by my initial answer.

I think you actually have it, World Famous. This link says the 1949-1971 model had the trapezodial inlays. Look inside the f-holes, there should be a stamp with the model number there. I'm thinking the diamond shape on the tailpiece seals the deal on that one.

Cleaned up, it should be a nice guitar.

I looked at a bunch of those photos and the only one that seemed to have that diamond shape on the tail piece was the L-50.
