I never shoulda sold this little beauty to Sled Dog guitars in Winnipeg. John said the "whole city" came to check it out.
An archtop with a bolt-on neck. Branded as "JG", it was made by the Zerosette company in Italy. Notice any similarities? The potentiometers were the most solid I have ever felt, and not a trace of scratch in spite of its age. I used this in a harmonica/guitar duo into a Guitarmate YGM2. The new owner upgraded to some jazz pickup. You can find this guitar at fetishguitars.com (dedicated to italian and european guitars from the sixties. GREAT SITE)

I also had an Ellisound made by Crucianelli, an accordian maker. It is also at the fetishguitars site -- pictures 182 and 183 (on tiled floor) in the "Fenderish" section. The Ellisound guitar was a piece of crap, but still fetched a good price with an American collector.
