You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

That could be a plethora of things, you can't see the headstock on it. Although it does look a lot like a Kay archtop I used to have. I'll try and find a picture of one for ya...


EDIT: Here ya go. This one was made in the mid 50's, most of them had electronics like the one in your pic. They offered a few different finishes and inlay choices too. Mine was a lot like this, except my block inlays weren't quite as big.. Google 'Kay Archtop' and a million of these pop up

Yeah, that's actually not similar at all.

It looks like "ay" from "Kay" to be honest. They changed their logos soo much when they made these. They put them on the pickguard on some of them. I've been trying to find a pic of one like this, but I've found 12 different designs so far...


EDIT: TS, who is this in the picture? We might be able to track down the guitars he used and go from there

Harmony Guitars

It's either custom, or vintage, because I couldn't find one in that color with no cutaways, and only on pup*.

This is nice Harmony guitars database, and I've linked you straight through to all the Jazzboxes they ever did. I couldn't find this exact one though, so as I said, probably custom, or at least modified.

Funny trivia: Turns out they but the brand name on the pickguard, and the model name on the headstock, where you'd normally find the brand logo.



Edit1:
its a hagstrom. at 2.07 you can clearly see the logo on the guard

Again, I fail to see how anyone could read that as Hagström...

edit2 * forget that, I just found this. That, in combination with a blurry pic of the video at 0:42, a view of the headstock, which matches with this, leads me to believe we've found a winner:

The Harmony Hollywood , built from '56 to '67.

Thanks so much. It's probably quite a bit out of my budget so can you think of anything just like that for up to £600. Thanks

Actually, these offbrand jazz boxes can be had fairly cheap if you wait for one that is in good shape, otherwise they likely won't be worth the money you put into them unless you dig the guitar.

Umm...your retarded answer was the Gibson Melody Maker. It in no way, shape, or form looks anything like a GMM.
