Great looking Hayman 3030 appears to be all original.

guitarz.blogspot.com:




The internet is killing me today.

Look at this Hayman 3030. This beauty is in great shape and to my eye appears to be all original too. I have a 3030 that i picked up last year, but wouldn't it be nice to have 2?

This auction is ending in 10hrs as I write this so you have only that long (or as long as my resolve to not click on bid can last) to get in on one of these for a very reasonable price in my opinion.

Rare Burns Steer from the early 2000s. Possible prototype.

guitarz.blogspot.com:






Thanks to Bill Lovegrove on the facebook Burns Guitars and Amplifiers page for posting this Burns Steer

This rare and possible prototype guitar looks like the love child of a regular Steer and a Brian May signature Red Special. Burns was producing both models at the time so the intermingling was quite likely. 

Though the body, neck,  and headstock are those of a cutaway Steer, the floating tremolo, Burns Trisonic pickups, and switching are very much Brian May. I wonder if the pickups are wired in series as on the Brian May model.

Currently listed in South Africa. 

I wonder if the seller will ship to Canada.

Heartfield RR-59 Made by Fender in Fujigen Factory 1992

guitarz.blogspot.com:








We looked at Heartfield guitars once before with this RR-58 and I mentioned that I would love to see it in green ( it's kind of a thing for me, green guitars ) and lo and behold here we have a green Heartfield RR-59.

I think it looks incredible.

I've yet to get my hands on a Heartfield guitar but given the quality level of guitars coming out of Japan at the time I can only assume it plays as good as it looks.

Currently on eBay for $699 U.S.

The BEANO official merchandise Dennie The Menace Guitar from John Hornby Skewes

guitarz.blogspot.com:
Ah, seeing this Dennis The Menace official licensed BEANO guitar takes me right back to my junior school years, where I spent many happy hours reading comics, of which The Beano was my favourite. This BEANO guitar has been issued by John Hornby Skewes, they of UK budget brands Encore and Vintage. The headstock is the same shape as used on Vintage branded Les Paul style guitars. Very cool indeed. I've seen it priced as high as £180 but this example I found on eBay is a very reaonable £115 including free postage within the UK.

For confused Stateside readers, I'd better quickly explain that the UK and USA both have their own completely separate cartoon characters called Dennis The Menace. Coincidentally both cartoon characters made their comic debuts in the year 1951.

Anjo Guitar from the 1980s. Pointy madness that could only be 1980s

guitarz.blogspot.com:








There's not much I can say about this 1980s Anjo electric guitar that the pictures don't already say. An obvious copy of a BC Rich, this pokey beast was likely made in Japan and would have the same level of craftsmanship that you'd find in a 1980s Japanese guitar.

Currently listed for $225 Canadian.

Yamaki AY-361. A 1970s Japanese acoustic with a maple fretboard.

guitarz.blogspot.com:





I've played a few Yamaki guitars and have always been pleased with them. I even took an old entry level one with a broken headstock and turned it into a Mandocello of sorts. It sounded great. This Yamaki AY-361 is unique to me in that it has a maple fretboard. I'd only ever seen this on older Ibanez and,  if I recall correctly, ElDegas guitars. I'm not shocked to see it here as Yamaki origins are similar to the others.

Currently listed at $600 Canadian.

Gemelli. An Incredible original offset Italian guitar from 1964

guitarz.blogspot.com:





This Italian beauty caught my eye. I feel Ive seen a similar guitar but I cannot quite recall where. Made by Gemelli ( Italian for "twins" as it was a company founded by twin brothers) in 1964 this offset 4 pickup wonder has all the elements of a vintage Italian guitar. Glitter finish and rocker ( or are they push button? ) switches help to complete the overall package of awesomeness that is this guitar. The funky tremolo is just icing on the cake.

Currently listed at $1600 Canadian.

Edit: I knew I'd seen a similar guitar before. Check out this red Bartolini.

Norma EG-200 Teisco Split pickup guitar from the 1960s

guitarz.blogspot.com:





We've looked at this awesome made in Japan Norma before on Guitarz, but I thought it was worth another look since this one recently popped up on eBay.

I love the pickup selector on this split pickup guitar. I think every option is there, including All Off. And that tremolo is, for lack of a better word, epic.

Gretsch 7506 Acoustic guitar from 1972 with an unusual bridge.

guitarz.blogspot.com:




This Gretsch 7506 initially caught my eye as it was not what I think of when I see the words "Gretsch" and "Acoustic" together. I'm used to the more ubiquitous triangular sound-hole that I thought was common to all of their flattop offerings. 

Again, I stand corrected.

Here we have a very traditional folk acoustic guitar. This made in the USA guitar has a couple of Gretsch hints, the headstock, the back access panel to the truss adjustment, and the 3 piece sadd..................le......what? Is? Going on?

Apparently I'd never seen the Tri-Saddle that they used on their acoustic guitars in the early 1970s. Is this extremly rare, or have i just missed it all these years?

Currently listed for $1000 Canadian dollars.

Hohner EGS Ergonomic Guitar from 2007

guitarz.blogspot.com:





I must have missed when Mr. Wilson posted the Black Hawk version of the Hohner EGS guitar. I'm sure I would have remembered seeing something like this before.

Though it's not really to my taste, I can see this 2007 Hohner EGS being appealing to some players. It has a lot of decent hardware including Schaller Locking tuners, Ebony fretboard, and shadow piezo pickup. It also has an adjustable aluminium wing for ease of play. If it's detachable it could help make this a decent travel guitar, but at $1500 that would be a very pricy traveller.
