Vintage Vaquero "Polo Players" cowboy guitar
The eBay seller believes that this vintage (I dare not call it antique) Vaquero cowboy guitar decorated with stencilled polo player dates somewhere within the 1940s/1950s. Whilst I can't imagine that it would be one of the better sounding acoustic guitars on the planet, it's nice to see the patch where the finish has been worn away (adjacent to the second polo player), indicating the guitar has seen some quite heavy use in its time. It's also interesting to note the stencil-like f-holes which are positioned much further forward than I've seen on any guitar.

Currently being auctioned on eBay with a starting price of US $175.

  1. No comment on the guitar, but I just wanted to say "Hello" - I've only recently discovered this blog, and since I'm interested in unusual guitars, going back through your previous posts has been incredibly interesting. Many thanks for sharing!!

  2. It probably won't reach a big price but it's worth for the painting! It will look better on your living room wall than let's say an old "no name" spanish guitar
