1960s Japanese Barclay Bison
This made in Japan 1960s Barclay guitar looks to be inspired by the Burns Bison, albeit with a hugely exaggerated body, which features some interesting carving to the top (and hopefully slims it down in a couple of places and maybe reduces the weight too). I know nothing about the Barclay brand - I seem to be discovering brandnames I've never heard of before all the time, mainly from Japan of the 1960s and 70s - but this guitar does seem to be in superb condition and would appear to be complete. Hey, the trem is still there, that's got to be a good thing on a vintage piece like this.

Edit: I thought it seemed familiar; we've already looked at a very similar Hy-Lo branded guitar with two pickups and a different headstock shape, but undeniably the same guitar!
