Prestige 19½" scale electric / child's guitar

guitarz.blogspot.com:
Prestige are one of those interchangeable brand names that we see on Japanese-made electric guitars from the 1960s and 70s. This one is a bit more unusual than most in that it is a diminutive shortscale guitar with a scale length of just 19½". It was most likely supposed to be a child's guitar, although of course - depending on playability - it could be tuned up as a soprano or piccolo guitar. It's a very simple affair, with a very crude bridge assembly, just a single volume control and no tone, and a single pickup (which does appear to be a gold foil unit, still popular with some and raided from cheapo guitars like these for their tone).

Currently being auctioned on eBay with bidding at $19.99 at the time of writing.

  1. I might actually bid on this as I have stupidly small hands and this might be right up my street. I'll let you know what it's like if I win it, although my ebay skills are terrible and I'll probably end up getting outbid at the last second.

  2. Good luck for the bid, hope it will be cheap because an old piece of crap never makes a good playing instrument. It can be collectible for rarity but still remain a piece of crap!
