Just what is that strange Red Dead Redemption guitar?
Dear Guitarz,

I have become slightly obsessed with finding out what I can about this guitar (images attached) that was used for the soundtrack to [the videogame] Red Dead Redemption. These screen caps comes from a cool video on the making of the soundtrack [see below].

Any ideas?

  1. The word, straight from the horses mouth is...

    "Avanti-German made guitar
    A few other ugly guitars I used were a red 1963 Fender Stratocaster and a Brown 1975 Travis Bean Artist"
    Woody Jackson

    I contacted Woody a little while ago and I got that reply. The wonders of Facebook!

  2. is that avanti german guitar in picture worth a lot? saw one at a thrift store if so how much

  3. I have one exactly like the one in the picture.
    Came across this thread while searching for information on my own.

    I read that Avanti's are a brand by Hoyer guitars.
    Mine has a sticker saying "made in Germany, U.S zone", it is quite rare and vintage.

    Does anyone have any additional info on it?
