Wandre of the month: the Polyphon

Another (not too) crazy Wandre guitar, the Polyphon has a design based on the Brigitte Bardot hollow-body model (lots of curves), an aluminium neck with 6 in-line tuners headstock and all the other unique Wandre gear - pickups, suspended bridge, tremelo... This one doesn't have big square switches like other Polyphons but more regular knobs, but there were always many variations in Wandre's series.

It also sports both the Davoli brand and the Krundaal K-logo - Davoli Krundaal was the amplifier brand of Athos Davoli who made the electronics and pickups of Wandre's guitars, it was used also for  the Bikini guitars with embedded amps, then it turned into the Davoli guitar brand, so it probably tells that it's an early model from an undecided time... An ultimate internet database on Wandre guitars is still missing!

  1. Hi! I own a Wandré-Davoli Polyphon guitar, made in the '60. Has the machine-heads on one side. Is in very good conditions. I'd like to know its value on the market. Can you please help me? Thank you so much.
