Wandre Meazzi Hollywood - vintage Italian guitar with built-in amp
Most of us have seen the Wandre Davoli Bikini guitar which has an amp and speaker pod attached to the body of the guitar. The Wandre Meazzi Hollywood (as pictured above), however, is a more conservative looking affair (for a Wandre, that is) and much more practical for playing purposes too than its ungainly sibling.

Unusually for a Wandre it appears to have a wooden neck instead of aluminium with bolted-on headstock. The pickup and pickguard are classic 1960s Italiana, crafted from thick plastic. Actually, if I'm not very much mistaken, the whole of the guitar's top looks to be moulded plastic. I also really like the exaggerated hourglass shape of this guitar.

I expect this was a budget model when compared to the Bikini, but it looks a lot more compact and practical. You wouldn't feel quite so silly with the Meazzi Hollywood strapped on.
