Formanta Borisov from Belorussian Soviet Socialist Republic

formanta borisov

Another Soviet guitar - literately - this 1980s Formanta with its rough switches (for built in effects) is one of my favorite eastern guitars. I missed one on eBay a few months ago and I still sigh with melancholy just recalling this...

This guitar had many interesting finishes, I like this combination of metallic blue, perloid brown and mate aluminium - I saw it in different sunbursts, mauve and even a sparkle pink one that didn't look silly at all!
