Great idea - often strung those frames at 55 or so with nylon. maybe at 60 with natural gut. The bad news is that recent natural gut , imho, shares little with the quality gut of that era. Due to the smaller head size and dense patterns, the gut was more fragile and more vibrant. The feel back then of a new wood frame and a tight gut stringing was a joy - hard to define... but long gone for sure...
