Soviet-era USSR B&G Formanta fuzz guitar
Just take one look at this B&G Formanta fuzz guitar and you know it's from Soviet-era Russia. Those switches and knobs all look as if they belong on some military hardware. However, the shape reminds me of the Vox Marauder.

This guitar is currently being offered for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $400. The seller tells us that it was made in the 1980s in the USSR by Belarusian Musical Instruments Factory at Borisov city, and that it has a built-in fuzz effect powered by a 9 volt battery. Apparently the headstock shape is rare for this model and has a reversed signature.
