Klira hollow body

Unfortunately Klira guitars are poorly documented on the internet, though this West-German company has been making music instruments for one century - stopping in the 1980s. Though at the time they started to build electric guitars they were located in Bavaria, the company was originated in Saxony,  next to the Czech border, like many German music instruments manufacturers based in Markneukirche and around.

All I can tell about this guitar is what I see: originally it had 3 pickups, 2 ones are left and have been slanted. It has the typically Klira strangely shaped control plate and cool tremolo. Its eBay seller says that it sounds good and loud - we'll have to believe him there...

  1. As another has already said, we're missing a middle pick-up. My complaint would be that they appear to be single-coil, and maybe it's too much Ted Nugent influence, but I love hollow body guitars for rocking due to the copious amounts of feedback without much effort you can get. I want to see humbuckers- less noise, better tone. ;-)
