Manufactured in the same Japanese factory that also produced Univox and early Aria guitars, this all-stock semi-hollow body is finished in a relatively rare sunburst (red and black were the standard colors). It sports fully functional—and dead quiet — electronics, a more-than-adequate Bigsby-knockoff vibrato tailpiece, and a very cool Gilligan’s Island-style headstock logo that makes us smile each time we look at it — Very 1972, Skipper! Electra guitar fans (and there are a surprising number of them lurking out there) generally replace the stock, less-than-robust tuners at some point, but the units on this guitar still hold a tuning, even when wrangling the tremolo arm or performing a hard double-stop bend. We put this guitar through its paces on everything from searing slide to gentle chordal washes. In all positions and settings, it yielded tones as sharp as your mother-in-law’s tongue. Just imagine how good it will sound on your rockin' medley of the themes from "The Brady Bunch" and "Bonanza." Comes with period-correct and presumably original hardshell case. Very good condition with only minor fretwear and a few small blemishes and dings on the body finish.
