Anyone recognize this guitar brand? This was me about 35 years ago, the guitar is long gone...
Is this a “see who can guess it first?” Or do you not remember and are trying to figure it out?
Aria Pro II?
I can’t remember the brand name. I paid a buddy $40 for it in 1982.
It really could be just about anything. I’m assuming that it’s a Japanese made LP copy. Around Rockville Maryland, the local music store had a house brand called Bradley. They had copies of all the US built guitars. I imagine there were music stores all over the country do the same thing.
It looks like my first guitar, a Univox circa 1975. Just a wild guess.
That looks just like an Electra LP from the same era. I'll bet that Bradley just had them rebrand them with their name.
I’m sure the store was just buying from one of the big guitar manufacturers in Japan. They sold Les Pauls, Strats, V’s, Fender type basses. All made in Japan copies with the Bradley name on the headstock.
That's a good looking Bradley. Grew up in NOVA, one of my first guitars was a black Bradley LP.
I think Venemans had a store in NOVA, didn’t they? I don’t think Rockville was their only store. But they were local. Supposedly the owners lived on Bradley Blvd down in Bethesda. Hence the name Bradley.
Isn't that a plastic bag of "music enhancer" hanging off the tuning pegs? That's what it looks like to me. The logo kind of looks like my Memphis.
I know nothing!
Yeah, they had a store in Springfield. So lots of Bradleys running around at the time.
I am also voting Memphis.
