    Kind of cool but I wouldn't pay more than $50 for it. But it very well may be something special and worth the $.

    I don't know what it is but it is literally coming apart at the seems and the neck is pulling off the body. Pretty cool to see the likely original strap with it though.

    Crappie fishing.
    I got a sneaky suspicion that wont sell. I agree its about 550.00 to much.

    It has been bid up to that price by several bidders, but there is probably no consequence if the high bidder doesn't pay for it.

    If that happened, I wonder if they offer it to the next lower bidder and keep trying until somebody sends in the payment.

    I think some bidders thought it was a silvertone 1446 (“Chris Isaac” model) AA7136DA-1F75-405B-A62B-645BD93FFA56.jpeg Which are actually nice jazz box guitars and have Gibson mini humbuckers as stock pickups. (The rings go for truly stupid amounts on the bay :0)

    Like MrYates I see it as having the look of a Harmony or Kay, but in truth it could have been any of the no-name brands sold by small mom and pop shops back when "real" guitars actually sold for their then mind blowing "list" prices.

    My circle back then generally found a way to buy those pricy geets (It was one guitar per person back then) but we'd see these in those shops. Not "terrible" but less than good. A far, far cry from the quality we see in even the least expensive guitars today.

    Apart from the romance of having (and maybe even using) an old an unfamiliar model I cannot see the attraction of an instrument like this. In comparison to a gguitar at even half the price new today this would, in my experience, be total stinker even if it didn't have issues.

    It’s a “GSO”, Guitar Shaped Object!
    If it doesn’t need a neck reset, If the electronics aren’t completely kaput, If it’s not cracked in several places, and If the bridge isn’t totally chewed up, it could be a novelty for a song or 2. At worst it’s an overpriced wall hanger. I’ve played a guitar with pups like those, they aren’t real high output and don’t sound all that good. I was way into hollow bodies like these, and it seemed 99% of them were trashed when I found them, with rare exceptions. And those ones were just “meh” players at best...
    But it sure looks cool from here...

    Someone got mad and bid it up. Every time I bid there, I bid and it immediately says I was out bid. Someone was probable bidding got mad and said I will show them.

    Perhaps the $600+ bidders plan to part it out for some of that stupid bay $? If pup rings are valuable then folks may pay premium $ for tuners, knobs, pups, etc.
