A beautiful UBER RARE 1957 Guyatone LG-40 HI Tone made in Japan Electric Guitar. What a time capsule, and it plays and sounds great!
This is one of the No Logo Guyatones made in the mid to late 1950’s. No numbers to identify it but my Guyatone expert assures me it’s a 1957 so we are going with that. Only thing not original is the Harmony wood bridge from the 1960’s and the ancient Grover tuners. I left both non original items on as they are great upgrades to this really cool guitar. Other than that, just superficial dings and scratches. It has awesome low playing action and it sound really cool with the Guyatone Single Coil Pickup. Very dark and greasy!! This pickup is very powerful. I was not expecting that with this peanut sized body.
Love the Hi Tone emblazed pickguard. The guitar is completely non molested under the guard. See pics. The truss rod cover covers …nothing. It doesn’t have a truss rod. Thought that was crazy to have a cover…LOL… No need for a truss rod with this guitar. The neck is dead straight and it plays great up the 20 frets. No fret outs or buzzing anywhere. The nut measures 1 11/16ths and it has a 24 ¾ inch scale neck. The body only measures 10 ½ inches at the lower bout. It only weighs 5 lbs 11 ozs. Never had a strap button on it after all these years. Use an old school headstock mounted strap to keep it authentic!
No original case came with this little guy. Unfortunately. I am shipping it in the shown gigbag that fits its fine. See pics.
Now this guitar is uber cool but old and vintage so it is sold as-is no returns..However...I have been hand picking guitars for my customers for over 20 years now and my customers love the guitars I findfor them....this cool Guyatone will certainly not be an exception!
Thanks for checking out our cool vintage guitars, amps and guitar parts!
