Listing Detail Tabs

This guitar is a 1960’s, Japanese Guyatone LG-250T electric. I recently had it serviced by weta Guitars in wellington and everything is in excellent working order. This quality instrument sounds and plays great.
It's from the golden years of Japenses vintage guitars. They were made for just two years: 1967 – 68. In the late 60’s Guyatone, keen to compete with the professional level American made guitars on the Japanese market, and helped by expertise from Yamaha, produced some highly sophisticated instruments of very high build quality. Sold exclusively in the domestic Japanese market. A solid body with deep cutaways and a sunburst finish over solid book-matched maple front and back. The finish overall is in pretty condition with just a few old dings as you would expect for its age. But nothing that affects playing at all. There's a sophisticated, massive, solid metal combo bridge/vibrato unit (the same as those used on the famous Guyatone ‘Sharp 5’ and the only other Guyatone instrument to feature it). The bridge is fully adjustable and the vibrato has a slide lock on it similar to the Fender mechanism on a Jaguar. It has a rosewood fret board with a zero fret and metal nut/string guide. Controls are set in a thick white pick-guard: 3-way PU switch, Master Vol and Tone.

There's two fantastic single coil pickups, a very comfortable maple, 24 ¾” scale neck, a headstock with good quality tuners, very good frets and low action with low easy action, no buzzes or flat spots, it plays superbly and sounds great. Please read the questions and answers for this listing.
