    If I was still in "acquisition mode", I'd buy it--no problem.

    Mark Agnesi (Norm's Rare Guitars) would have a field day reviewing it!

    Hi,

    I think that's kind of cool. It needs some love but it's so ugly it's cute. Definitely a conversation starter.


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    True. However, it would fit in Mark's usual Wednesday review, where he reviews weird guitars.

    I love those old soviet units. There were some really unique designs from Russia and other eastern european countries back in the 60s and 70s. The design world was their oyster and everyone tried everything... :)

    I like it so much, right down to the DIN-5 output jack. I’d rock that in a minute.
