Answer
Hey Joe,

Thanks for writing back with the pictures! This is an interesting guitar. It isn't a true 3/4 size guitar in that the 3/4 scale/size guitars normally have a bigger body. This is a travel size flying v guitar. For a while, travel size guitars were popular with players who wanted a guitar they could take with them that didn't take up a lot space on planes, buses, etc. Sammy is actually mad by a company called Samson (good luck to to find out a lot on this company). They were made mostly in the late 1980s. They tend to sell for between $200-$400 in auction markets like Ebay. The guita was probably manufactured at the Samick factory in Korea. Samick actually makes guitars for a number of companies including Gretch, Fender and Epiphone as well as Agile (the best copies are Agile - you can get a set neck Les Paul for $250 that looks, sounds and plays like the real deal). It is hard to find information about this company because they tend to sell for an outside the United States market. Let me know if you need further details. Stay in touch...Johnny
