No sales tax for customers outside California!
Here's a cool one for ya! I love bringing stuff you've likely never seen before!
While it isn't the biggest deal, this guitar has just about the coolest case ever. Check it out. I can't find another example that is for sale, or even a sold listing, that includes the original case.
The guitar appears to be all original. It is a very early Japanese make, and as such it isn't likely a guitar you'll pickup and rock every day, but nonetheless it does play pretty well with reasonable action, despite the face that it doesn't have a truss rod - that plate on the headstock is just for looks! The mark on the back is the finish having been affected by sitting on an old, coil-style guitar cable.
The tone is actually pretty remarkably good - much better than we expected!
Next I'll go straight to history I found on the interwebs:
American guitars are arguably at the front of the 1950's Golden Age of Rock 'N Roll Music. But even before American Guitars flooded the UK market, one of the most popular guitars, with that first wave of British Rockers, was a Japanese import. The Guyatone Guitar made it to The British Isles first. This Guyatone LG-50, also marketed in the UK under the brand name of Antoria, was undoubtedly one of coolest ROCK Guitars around.
Guyatone was manufactured out of the legendary Matsumoku factory in Japan. However, Guyatone was distributed & exported through many other brands with numerous logo's, such as Ibanez, Kent, Antoria, Crown, Fandel, Imperial, Marco Polo, etc... and of course the "FEATHER" Brand. At the time, the Guyatone look & sound, was so-popular in the UK, that it was the inspiration for the Burns Sonic and the Fenton-Weill Deluxe Guitar.
