Vintage German-made pearloid-finished Migma solidbody electric guitar
Most regular readers probably already know how much we like vintage German guitars here on Guitarz. This Migma solidbody was made in the former East Germany; the seller claims it is from the 1950s, but I think 1960s is far more likely, especially considering the pearlescent celluloid finish. Surprisingly, the guitar appears to have a set neck rather than a bolt-on, and in fact other than the headstock shape the whole neck looks as if it could easily have come off an archtop acoustic guitar - note how the neck joins the body at around the 14th fret, also the block markers and the very top end of the fingerboard without frets. The guitar's heritage is all very clear.

Note also the unusual attachments for clipping on a guitar strap.

Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of €649.
