1950s Stella electric with 3 pickups
How cool is this? A Stella-brand electric guitar from the 1950s. Of course Stella are best known for their cheap and cheerful acoustics beloved by many an old bluesman, but - whilst rare - their electrics are not unheard of. This 3-pickup example is supposedly particularly uncommon. The seller suspects that it may originate from Japan, and I guess that could well be the case. I just love those three golden pickups with a volume and tone control for each. Although it appears to be a solid body, the seller says it is chambered which may be a good thing seeing as the body is reportedly "bigger than a Jazz Bass".
