this guitar was my grandfathers, he purchased it 64 years ago from an Italian man, he said the Italian man also got it second hand. it has 'broadway' and 'johnny' stickers on it that my grandfather put there, the headstock had broken off and been glued back on, my grandfather said he hasn't replaced anything on it but the strings. it looks like some other vintage Framus guitars I have seen.
*the inside of the guitar has an information sticker thingy,
think it's in German, but it's very worn and only some of it remains.*
Please see the pictures.

This COULD be a Framus Sorella. But I don´t find it in the web with this bridge.

It looks like a Sorella body, but the pickguard and tailpiece both look incorrect: Framus Vintage

It is also not a Hoyer guitar, they also have different pickguard and head.
Maybe it is a Hopf or a Hüttl...

Looks a lot like a Sorella.

I'd send an email to Framus asking for an identification.
