Gabor guitars?

Has anyone heard of Gabor guitars? I did a search on google without much luck. Theres one up on that site, item number 150082665528. Its a sweet looking guitar but Ive never seen or heard anything of them before. The rear cavity looks a lot like USA Customs though, could it be a custom build. Any one got a clue?

Re: Gabor guitars?

Hmmmm, never heard of them either.

As you say, the guitar looks pretty sweet, and by looking at it I would guess a custom build of some sort. Whether or not it is USA made I don't know. The guitar looks nice whatever it is.

Re: Gabor guitars?

I'd say it's a nice looking guitar (if you're into strats, and I'm not), but no way is it worth $2300. No offense to the luthier Gabor, but this didn't sound very truthful to me "This guitar is completely handbuilt by a luthier named Gabor from Germany and he only used the highest quality woods and hardware from the best manufactures in the world." I'm saying nothing bad about it's build quality (never played one), but If that's the highest quality wood he's seen, he can't have been doing this for long lol.....

+1 reminds a bit of Nuno's Washburn signature.

Yeah, it does actually.

It was probably based around that and a reversed headstock strat.
