It can be because the makers had parts delivered from the same suppliers or even simpler that the smaller makers copied guitars from others
I think Your guitar could very well be an old neubauer inspired or copied from a popular good selling Framus model.
The small makers guitars probably sound better than the guitars from the bigger companies I think, simply because they are more "handmade"...
The catalogue is from 57 ? So the models in it are photographed earlier maybe as early as 1955. Up to then they were busy making their new factory . It seems to me that the models changed quite fast after 1957 catalogue models. Notice that there is not even one three dotted guitar on framus vintage afaik .

Ill tell You later. First impressions : medium loud, sweet and good tone at lower end but lacks power on treble strings from fret 5 and up. good - but not a topsounding guitar. has improved allready. will give full report later.
