About This Listing

This is a real rareity - made in Japan in the sixties for export to the UK and in particular to the large chain of department stores spread all over England - ''Woolworth's'' - now sadly no longer with us - who used to sell everything from sweets, to garden tools, to guitars, and this is one of the guitars offered for sale in Woolworths in the 1960's.
It is in a superb condition, with a single goldfoil pickup and volume and tone controls all mounted on a metal scratchplate, and with a very good quality roller bridge and a tremolo tailpiece complete with removable arm. It plays really well and is totally original, and it comes with the original Woolworth's guitar card showing this guitar - model 2177, and also supplied the small tool for adjusting the truss rod.
It shows one or two tiny wear marks and a very small dent in the pickup  - none of which detract from this lovely little guitar which is now a real rareity.
