I have a 59 Burst with the original case. The case has a guitar store logo fixed to it - with the script 'Hugo Music Center' - see photo attached. Does anyone know anything about this guitar store - where was it located etc? Many thanks in advance.

Pretty great intro to the forum!!! Love the guitar AND the cool logo on the case!

I love this kind of thing... chasing down the history! Might start by calling some of the established/longstanding stores in the st Louis area... find out who the owner of Hugo was an see if you can track him/her down (if still with us). There is a store here that has been around for 30 years and the owner knows all the history and/or who to go to when he doesn't know.

FWIW... I always try and get as much history on a guitar and keep it in the case. Even on the newer stuff... kind of silly, but figured someday might be someone that appreciates the effort lol.
