Mystery Machine

Today's feature submitted by Jon Tranberry here in the Twin Cities. He's looking for a little assistance in identifying this gem of an acoustic for a friend of his. Knowing how much our readers love to assist other local players I agreed to publish this photo to see who could be the first to offer up the correct identity & origin of this unusual 6 string guitar. You can use the comment section below to give it your best shot. Jon sends his thanks in advance.       }:-D-


  1. The appointments seem very Germanic ala Framus, Hofner, etc. but the headstock looks more Czech/Eastern bloc like a Futurama or Delicia. Then again the body and cat eye soundhole is very similar to some Dutch Egmond models.

  2. Agreed, but what does the headstock shape & finish suggest?
