Meazzi Acoustic Jupiter

Here is a rare example of the craftsmanship of Italian guitar builders from the 1960'.
Meazzi was one of the biggest Europe musical instruments dealer during 1950-1960, mostly renowned for their drums, accordions, amps, tape delays, etc but they had also guitars on their portfolio.
This instrument is part of their professional line, marketed as "Hollywood" and was made by Polverini Bros. factory from Sicilia.
All the Jupiter models were top-of-the-line guitars of their line-up.
This model appears in their catalogue in 1962 and was removed during 1964-1965.
It doesn't have a serial number, so, I cannot exactly date it.
The guitar is all original.
It was restored by a professional luthier and has new vintage style Fender frets, all the electronics were cleaned and checked, a part of missing binding was replaced with a new one (see attached pictures), the bridge was setup, etc.
The guitar is in very good working order. The actions is low, without buzzing, stays good in tuning and sounds awesome.
It is a very special guitar, with an unique tone.
It has a slider switch which blends neck and bridge pickup.
On the upper side, it has full bridge pickup with a pre-amp (battery is inside "Hollywood" cover), which sounds clear and twangy, on the lower side it has full neck pickup, which sounds very warm and jazzy.
In between these positions you can have a lot of tone variations.
It also has 1xvolume and 1xtone.
The tremolo is working fine and the tuning pegs are still functional.
It is a +50 years guitar so it comes with few dings and scratches. I tried in picture to highlight all the imperfections.
Excepting these aesthetics issues, it is a real vintage guitars, in perfect working order, with a lot of mojo, which needs another home and good care.

I offer international shipping only to customers located within EU.
