Thread Name: Otwin guitars - anyone else owned one?
Subject: Otwin guitars - anyone else owned one?
My first guitar - bought in 1964 - was a cheap and useless instrument. A friend took pity on me and offered to sell me -for £10 - his f-hole guitar. The make was "Otwin". I played this for 3 or 4 years (before buying a s/h 1964 Epiphone Texan) and - though I may be wearing rose-coloured spectacles or angelic hearing-aids - it seemed a nice, basic instrument with a reasonable action and tone. I've never seen another Otwin, before or since. Anyone else ever come across this brand?
