KLIRA

“Triumphator”

1964

Electric Guitar

Made in Germany

WHITE VINYL

 

VINYL-IZED

VINYL IS BACK-for records I’ve been told.

And Paddy MacDee on BBC-NEWCASTLE just remarked that an original stereo copy of  The Zombies-Odessey and Oracle LP is now worth 400 quid ($600 USD).  I am going to look for mine right now.

And if VINYL is back for recordings, then maybe it is time for it to be back for guitars as well-

And from my VINYL GUITAR COLLECTION is… a 1964 KLIRA “Triumphator” electric guitar MADE IN GERMANY.  An incredible guitar with an ultra-cool case.  

The KLIRA Company started in 1887 and stayed a family owned business until WW-II.  After the war, KLIRA and HOFNER joined together to rebuild their factory and business. 

All KLIRA guitars were known for their high value to cost prices but more so for their innovative designs and high quality construction.  A quick study of the KLIRA catalogs in the early 1960’s show guitar designs that later were copied by many of the major guitar builders of that era.

This example is their double cutaway model in the “strat” style.  Klira, like most guitar builders everywhere, saw the popularity of the Fender Stratocaster and began to emulate its style.

The hardware was great and the single coil German pickups were very good having great tonal response while also sounding very bright.  The trem system on this guitar is absolutely one of the best I have seen on any guitar.  It works smoothly and easily and the guitar stays in tune quite well.

The guitar is in very good condition cosmetically and operationally.

Comes with OHSC.

This is one you will play a lot.  It is a real player.

And it has been vinylized.

Special Conditions

MY TRY IT OUT POLICY.

Understanding the normal hesitation of buying a guitar without first playing it, I want to make sure these guitars make you happy. To accomplish that, I want you to try them for 72 hours (three days). Play them, hold them, walk around with them on your back, sleep with then-whatever it takes for you to make sure these are the ones for you. During that time, you can return them for a full refund of your payment price (but of course they need to be treated well while you have them, as I expect you will) less shipping cost and you must pay the cost to ship it back to us.

If one arrives damaged, please let me know immediately by email. Be sure to hold onto all packing material and the box. I will contact the shipper for an inspection. Remember that this can take up to a couple of weeks but I will rush it along.

Minor problems. If there is a problem with one of the guitars when it arrives, e.g., loose wires etc. then I will work with you to get it repaired by someone in your area.
