Arnold Hoyer solid body guitar
I'm afraid I don't have any information about this Arnold Hoyer solid body guitar - it's of course much easier to learn about the renowned hollow body jazz guitars of their classic period - but the followers of the Guitarz blog may remember this one with which it shares more or less everything - its lower horn, pickguard, control plate, knobs, pickups, bridge, trem, headstock...
This guitar is not so radical in its design and is actually well balanced between classicism and extravagance - something I always appreciate in a guitar (you'll notice the typically German 3-pin DIN output favored then in eastern-europe over the now standard jack connector, and of-course the super cool rhomboidal single coil pickups).
