Thread Name: 60/70s guitars
Subject: RE: 60/70s guitars
My main guitar is a Hoyer jumbo - bought new for £36 in about 1965. Nice rounded tone with medium strings - I tried light strings but it sounded rubbish. Still in good condition, except the varnish cracking. I shouldn't keep it hung up in centrally-heated rooms.

My other guitar is a 100-year-old Italian guitar made by Alfredo Albertini. The face is traditional mandolin-style, with marquetry and inlay - Albertini was better known for mandolins. Cost £2.50 in about 1975.
