Adorned with lashings of mother of toiletseat, this DiPinto Belvedere Deluxe guitar is highly reminiscent of the weird and wonderful guitars produced in Europe during the 1960s Beat Boom.
Despite its retro looks, it's a modern guitar with modern appointments and playability. The semi-hollow body - beneath all that bling - is of mahogany, whilst the bolt-on maple neck has an ebony fingerboard with star inlays and white binding.
Pickups are a pair of "vintage twang" mini-humbuckers, while a Tune-o-matic bridge and Bigsby vibrato complete the picture.
This guitar is currently being offered for sale on eBay UK with a Buy It Now price of £375.
