Jolana Alfa
Here's another fab-looking East-European guitar. It's a Jolana Alfa built in Czechoslovakia in 1965. Possibly it plays like a dog, there's no real way of telling other than by buying it, but I wanted to include it here on the blog so that I could say: Check out those crazy switches!

  1. Those switches looks suspiciously like organ keys to me - maybe (judging by their reverse colour) originally intended for a combo organ.

  2. Well, actually those switches were originally supposed to be a part of ETA vacuum cleaners ( I know it because we had one when I was young (I'm from Czech Republic) :)
