New weird guitar day.

Today is a new guitar day for me. Me likey..

The guitar is quite rare piece, I couldn't find anything on it in internet. Just one catalog page about it and it's in japanese. All I could find out is that it was 180000 yen's back in the days.

Specs are:
-Mahogany body
-Maple neck
-Rosewood fretboard, 24 frets
-5+1 style gotoh tuners
-Piezo
-single humbucker pup
-wilkinson (?) tremolo

Almost forgot, it's a Fernandes Resona!

Anyway, here's the pictures everyone has come to see.. Nobody cares about my babbling





to be continued!

Yep, indeed it is. This thing is LOUD acoustically. Resonates like mad and sounds very nice.

Re: New weird guitar day.

Never seen one of these before, gotta admit it's great to see unusual guitars like this, must be quite rare that. Cool looking guitar, I like it a lot!!!

Re: New weird guitar day.

From the pics, the scale length seems to be the standard 25.5. Very nice instrument btw, even if a little bizarre!

Re: New weird guitar day.

I kinda like it. It's almost like they used the body of a bass to make that thing. Does it have some piezo setup?

Re: New weird guitar day.

The scale lenght is 25,5".

I'm sure she's a rare lady, as google gives about three results with the name and two of then are from finnish messageboards, in which nobody has ever seen one. Third one is from vintage japanese guitar shop. Oh and fourth is a japanese catalog page.

It does have a piezo system. The first pot is a volume for the magnetic pup, second is piezo volume, so I can blend piezo sound to pup sound seamlessly and third one is master tone.

It's nice to see that people have some love for not so ordinary guitars

Actually it's sh-150 with made in germany shadow piezo according to catalog.

I like this guitar very much already, which means I'll have to get new hanger for my guitar wall..
