What guitar is this? Vintage Electric Guitar

guitarz.blogspot.com:



The seller of this guitar found it in the basement and said that it was his/her father's guitar when he was a kid.
It's hard to tell what the guitar is. I'm assuming 1960s Japanese but I cannot recall a guitar with a headstock nearly as big as the body.
I'm at a loss for figuring this one out.

Anyone?

  2. That pickguard and pickup is Zen-On for sure. Google search and look at images; you'll see several pretty similar guitars.

  4. Definitely Japanese, it's a Zen-On. I've got the two-pickup version, with gold foil pickups and vibrato, finished in sunburst :-)

  6. Another vote for Zenon. My Bruno Conqueror also has a giant headstock that fits that profile but with sharper edges.

  7. Awesome! Thanks folks.

    Funnily enough one of my favourite finds on this blog was a Zenon - http://guitarz.blogspot.ca/2013/04/more-vintage-japanese-solidbody.html
