Daion Savage from 1982
The Daion Savage is another all-but-forgotten Japanese guitar from the late 70s/early 80s.

It's a good looking guitar equppied with with DiMarzio pickups, and featuring a heel-less bolt-on neck. The shape appears to be quite ergonomic having a pronounced upper wing which would support the right forearm nicely.

I can't find out a lot about Daion guitars on the net, other than the name is mentioned in conjunction with the famed Matsumoko factory out of which many other quality Japanese brands also emerged (Westone, Aria, Univox, etc...). There is also mention of the brand having grown out of the earlier Yamaki guitars brand. One thing is certain, that is these were quality instruments and are beloved by those who own them.
