About This Listing

One of the best quality-models of the late soviet era along with Stella and Ural and definitely the Aelita-1 has the most convenient shape. The Aelita-1 models were made at 3 different factories, but this one is definitely the best sounding and has the best quality. It can be recognised by the metal framed pickups, the 2 lines along the fretboard and some other tiny features. And of course check out the cool Logo at the neckplate!

Only 6500 were Produced 1974-1980 in Rostov at the Bandoneon factory. Don`t mix it with the other piano-factory in Rostow.

  Alder body, beech neck with a mahogany layer above the fretboard. Tunomatic instead of the original bridge I consider an upgrade to the sound.

3 on/offs , 3 filters , some knobs/   650 mm scale

Wiring works perfect! A sovietmade instrument in such a fine condition is a rare bird.
the guitar sounds terrific. Due to the hardtail reminds me most of a telecaster.

This is a working instrument, fit for recording and playing live.
The straps on the pictures are available and cost 10$ each. Most of them were made of faux leather in USSR. they remind of some modern Fender-made Models.  

 Cheap shipping! Check it out! When sending the neck is removed, in order to transportation safety.
