The Jolana Diamant was - and still is, since the brand has been revived - a Czechoslovakian copy of a Les Paul, and for me it has the special vibe that also have Japanese copies from the 1970s - it's difficult to tell why but they are almost more attractive than original Gibson models!
Anyway, as you can see this model has been retrofit with contemporary gear - not as cool as the original stuff that you can see here - in order (I assume) to keep it playable. And though a vintage Diamant is a very nice guitar, I prefer to see it renovated and played than original and in a museum (or a basement). What do you think?
