You say Fender, we say Fendar! A not-fender copy with identity issues.

There's a lot to be said about this Fendar acoustic guitar, and not much of it is good. Look at that very familiar style logo. Then look at it again. And, again. All in all the name Fendar shows up on this guitar 5 times. The headstock screams Ovation, the guitar looks like it's painted with plastic, and that poor glue-hungry nut makes me cringe.

And possibly saddest of all is the price of $400. Not because it's ridiculously overpriced, but I get the feeling that the seller believes it's worth that and likely paid even more for it themself.

  1. Could it be Indian perhaps? A stablemate of Givson guitars?

    1. Well, you know, some guys are Givson guys and some guys are Fendar guys.

  2. I love the fact that the maker went to the trouble to add the circle "R" trademark symbol above the "Fendar" logo on the truss rod cover...

  4. I think it's a good guess that it's an Indian guitar - especially with the zero fret.
