Cheep-ish (not Guild, Gretsch, Gibson or Epiphone qualety) guitars from USA late 50's early 60's. Thinner versions of the "lipstick" pickups used by Danelectro. Crispy tone. The hollowbody gives it a sertain twang.
Old rockabilly/jazz bands in USA used them. Cant remeber any names right now. Sorry about that.
If the price is right, then why not? Its an odd instrument.
