National custom LEM guitar

Custom single cone, style 3 engraving, MOTS fingerboard.

Aleth Hansen's LEM engraving

Remarkably similar to the presentation guitar made for National's George Beauchamp, LEM belonged, I believe, to Aleth Hansen. He played with the Beverly Hill Billies Band where his stage name was Lem H. Giles H.D. (for Horse Doctor). He was also in the Bar X Cowboys.

More about the Beverly Hill Billies and Aleth Hansen can be found here.
