1970s Czechoslovakian Jolana Star IX guitar a.k.a. the Screwdriver
According to the seller of this guitar, it is known as the Screwdriver because of its shape. Made in Czechoslovakia in the 1970s, this Jolana Star IX with its "screwdriver" shape doesn't very much resemble the Jolana Star X that we looked at here on Guitarz back in August 2009. The Jolana Basso IX that we looked at in December 2009, however, does share the same shape. It's nice to see what the control plate on this design should look like (the Basso IX we featured had a home-made replacement), but I doubt the knobs are original. Alas, the original pickups are missing their covers, and the trem arm would appear to be similarly absent.

This guitar is currently being auctioned on eBay with a starting price of $200.
