Here's another vintage guitar to identify. It's a thinline hollowbody, looking similar to early Yamaha semis, but has the split stereo pickups similar to those on the 1960s Goya 12-string semi-hollowbody that we looked at on Friday.
The name on the headstock is Emperador, yet another name that is new to me and is quite likely a brandname for a particularly retailer. My feeling is that it is Japanese in origin, although it is conceivable that it may be European.
If anyone has any more info on this instrument please let us know in the usual way!
Thanks to DeeCee who found this guitar for sale here, priced at €800.
