Givson unknown model

I can't tell much about this guitar by infamous Indian brand Givson, but that it looks somewhat silly, but maybe also cool in its way…

The control plate has the vintage Italian attractive craziness, but in an 1980s way - and the outline feels absurd, but no more than some Japanese bizarre beauties from the psychedelic times.

I don't know if Givson's bad reputation is based on the ordinary racism that affected Japanese, then Korean, then Chinese guitars, before their quality could speak for themselves, or the awkwardness of the brand name - or if they're really that bad…

Some unbiased and skilled guitarist has to try and tell us! Or maybe I just buy it and do it myself, because so far it seems that it won't sell at a very high price!

  1. I can't buy it, they won't ship to Austria!

  2. My motto is: give son, then take son. It might look a little better with a contrasting scratch plate.

  3. I have played a Givson acoustic and it wasn't a bad guitar. Probably comparable to those 1970s Eko acoustics.

  4. Givson also made (and probably still make) a bass which I can't remember the name of, it looks kind of like a mutated Maton Fyrbyrd and is ridiculously cool looking.

  5. The design at least is original and quite pleasant to look at. I like the "black on black" pickguard and independant switches for the pickups. The bridge reminds me of indian electric sitar bridges. Maybe it's derived from it or just using the same parts...

    That is a very 1980's looking guitar! If you like it, then you might want to check out this one:

  7. Too pointy and "déjà vu" as we say in French (answer to Maxwellrocks)

  8. something about it reminds me of an old soviet guitar. pretty darn cool.
