Mystery guitar


Hi Gavin,

Here's something for your erudite readers... what is this, and who made it?

This pic is a screen grab from "Salt and Pepper", a 1968 movie starring Sammy Davis Jr and Peter Lawford. Sammy visits a groovy London club and showboats his version of Hollywood groovyness.

Here's the scene from YouTube - the guitar closeup is around 1:36(ish).

AND, just for reading this far, check out THIS link!

All bests, and THANKS!

Colin Griffiths

Edit: Bertram has pointed out that it looks to be a Maton, and that we looked at the Maton Big Ben Bass over a year ago - you'll notice the similarities! - G L Wilson
