    I do have the original mini book/warranty card that came with the guitar. It has a copyright date of 1984, so mine was made either in ’84 or later up to ’88. I just tuned it up and played it again and it is a nice player with very good sound, great action. It’s not […]

  • This is a vintage Japanese made guitar from the 1960’s. It is a knock off of the Gibson 335 hollow body arch top guitar with the F holes. It has full binding everywhere, with dual single coil pickups. A reasonable player now that I have adjusted it out.
