Also, does it look like walnut wood? Thanks

So I'm guessing this is a one-off? It's kind of sweet; I think I am going to put UKE tuners on it, given the space available. Clean it up, and sell it. I need to clean up the mess at the end-pins, any advice? I just didn't want to mess with it before checking on historical value.

Thanks, Joe.  My memory isn't what it used to be (like other parts of me.)

I've seen soundholes like those on some inexpensive instruments which (I think) were made around Branson, MO.  I don't remember the maker.

Looks to be all walnut construction. It has a 21" VSL, and a floating bridge. If you have any information about who might have made it, please chime in. There is no signature anywhere on or in the body.
