1959 Barth guitar looking strangely familiar
The ebay auction for this Barth guitar from 1959 ends in just a few minutes, although I suspect it may be re-listed. It currently has a Buy It Now price of $899; maybe it'll be a little less with the next listing.

If you think the design looks familiar, bear in mind that Paul Barth, besides designing for Magnatone and Mosrite, was also a designer at Rickenbacker. It does look very Rickenbacker-like, doesn't it?

EDIT: Sure enough it's been re-listed, although the price remains unchanged.

  1. Yeah, it has a rick vibe. It would look more like one if it had the carve, but I think in the end, it just looks sixties junk-sale guitar kitsch. Also a little telecaster-ish. I wish I could hear what it sounds like.
    Just realized how old this post is.
