On the bench

On the bench

Among the pile of guitars I've dug out around here to service and put on the site is another one of these amazing Victor / NIVICO SG-18s.

With bodies and necks made by the GREAT Matsumoku factory for less than 2 years in the mid 60's, these were always a "bucket list" guitar for me back in the day. 

I have owned quite a few now and I absolutely LOVE this design and, they're great guitars with amazing pickups made by JVC. I even "hotroded" one that was missing some crucial parts to get it back playing again.

I've got a few other cool vintage Japanese guitars coming to the site soon along with this one so check back over the next couple of weeks if you're on the lookout.
