...the uglier they are the more I want them...
A very early version of this site crossed my way some time ago on a server at the end of the universe. Reviewing it I decided it still might be of some interest ...
While the original version was just English (don't ask me why...I am German and my English is quite faulty sometimes, I guess:-) and I am not a real friend of what I would call anglo-american cultural imperialism, though things might be a bit boring here without all those influences:-)) the second edtion was German and now I manage to find some helpfull mind who gracefully added French, so we can see all European main languages in the third edition.
The shown guitars are part of my (former) collection of European instruments, picked during the last 20 years (ooops, maybe it is longer time ago now, I see while translating...), following German typical 60s behaviour there is one model from Israel :-) and an other exception from Japan. My personal guideline made me choose strange constructions rather than standards. Nevertheless some of this guitars are good playable instruments. Some are suffering of basic misconstructions, part of the reason they had to leave the market during the 70s when companies of the Far East (and later on from south America) took over giving customers better price-value relation.
Please, don't get me wrong: some of the German guitars built during the 60s and early 70s are still great tools and instruments of high quality, the right choice if you dare being different or just want a guitar that serves you well.
If you would like to touch what you see, try contacting, the world is a small ball right now and there might be ways...
Have pleasure, greetings
