1968 Guyatone Saturn

With its exaggerated offset body horns, four pickups, and an almost bewildering array of control knobs and switches - including a volume for each pickup and a single tone - this Guyatone-made Saturn guitar is certainly an eye-catching example of 1960s Japanese guitar-making.

The Saturn brand was, according to the eBay listing, sold through the Canadian catalogue Eaton's.

This is a nice example of this guitar from 1968. There is some cracking in the pickguard around the 3rd pickup and apparently the tremolo is not original (although you'd never know it).

  1. Hello! my name is Nate DeMont representing Guyatone in the US. This was not actually made by Guyatone. This was most likely manufactured by Sakai
