The barbershop guitar: Comet double-cutaway parlour acoustic

Marcus posted this picture on our Facebook page and writes that:
This is hanging on the wall at a barbershop in Toronto. Any ideas? The brand is "Comet."
It looks like a Stella with pretentions of becoming a Strat. Has anyone out there seen anything similar?

  1. Come to think of it, I can't identify a single item in the entire pic.

  2. This is like one of those elaborate puzzles with lots of clues that leads to a secret treasure.. I wonder what the name of the barber shop is.
    Firstly, the guitar is not the only Comet in the picture.
    There is a Bronson Comet fishing reel.
    The Comic's main story is XXX of a comet
    The third "sticker" on the wall says Comet
    The telescope (or whatever) is branded Comet
    The mirror says Comet
    The camera looks like it could be a Bencini Comet (or maybe a CMF).
    Comet is used a brand name for marbles (no surprise).
    The car in the poster could well be a '65 Mercury Comet
    Do I win a cometacious prize?

    1. Ding-ding-ding!

      I was thinking either Halley's or Hale-Bopp! Thought the car was a Merc. Even in B & W that garish green still seeps thru!

      How ARE you David! Hope all is well.

  3. Awsome guitar. shame it's stuck on a wall.It should be liberated!
