I have no idea it definatley looks old and I am intrigued by that pick plate which is very thick and appears to house a switch. I have also never seen pickups like those. I'm curious now and hope someone can shed some light on this.

I've been searching for this guitar for a while now. Found Some resemblance in Deusenberg and Gretch but no match yet.

Enlighten me please!


Kinda looks like an Eko 295.
Maybe if you google vintage semi hollow swinger guitar you might get a bit nearer.

That's a mandolin-style body- any other distinguishing marks?

I wish I could help. I don't know the vintage stuff too well, but it looks like one of those pre-1970 Italian or Japanese guitars. I bet one of the "obscure" guitar bloggers or a retailer like Elderly could ID it.

dannyalcatraz Thanks for the tip! Send myrareguitars an email a week ago. He told me someone on this east-european facebookgroup for vintage guitars could tell me what kind of guitar it was. And that was semi-true. Someone knew it was a Ludwig and got me the site for the original uploader of the only picture I had. After some midnight browsing I found out it is a Commodore Ludwig from New Zealand build by Buddy Milne. Some guys think there are only 2 of them left in the world. :p Amazing.

(Since I'll probably won't ever be able to buy one, I'm thinking of making a replica of it since I like the shape)


Edit: Here is a guy that restored one > http://s1115.photobucket.com/user/roduez/library/?sort=3&page=1
