Dynacord Cora

No more link to the selling site of this stunning Dynacord Cora - it was unsurprisingly sold very fast - there've been no more than 100 of these ever produced and it's a guitar collector's dream, when vintage surpasses once for all anything that followed in the next half century!

Dynacord is a major German audio company started in the 1950s, shortly teamed in the 1960s with Italian GEM (also using Schaller hardware and pickups) to produce a series of guitars including this quite unique Cora: a reduced wooden body in a double cutaway-shaped tubular frame.

It was short-lived - not sure if for technical flaws or excess of avant-gardism,  but it's a mystery to me that such a perfect design was not explored further and made a standard!

And you know what? There was a black body model and it looked even better!

  1. Just perfect! Same idea as Yamaha's today's silent accoustic guitars...They could also build electic ones that way!

  2. Gelukkig heb ik er een zwarte uitvoering en speels nog steeds goed
