So i was given this by my neighbour as a present for playing guitar to him. He used to play it in a band a long time ago, and i'm curious as to what it is, what the switches do, and everything else.

Any help is appreciated.







I'm going to restring it and clean it up a bit in a sec. So if you want more pictures, ask quick

Looks techno 70's to me.

Does it play itself?


Anyway, any numbers on the neck, on the headstock, any writing at all anywhere?

I'll make some food and get some more pics up. =]

It looks like it was made by National. They are known for odd shapes and a multitude of knobs, I would check around for that brand and try to compare guitars.

I really can't work out what this one is. It's a real beauty though! It looks to me like a Japanese made '60s instrument like a Teisco or something but I can't find one the same. I suggest you email the guy at www.myrareguitars.com (who make Eastwood guitars) because he's got a large collection of similar looking instruments.

Eastwood guitars is a re-release brand that takes a bunch of iconic guitars and basses, and remakes them for cheaper under their brand name. The ones you showed him are their release of National guitars.

I know what Eastwood do - I also know that the Mike that runs Eastwood is an avid collectors of funky old guitars and is always interested in instruments he hasn't seen, which is why I suggested he email. For example here is a gallery of some of his collection.

Ah, I did not know that. Sorry for the mixup.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

You can never have enough switches! I demand a built-in keyboard on the back on the neck!
