We all know and love vintage Magnatone amps, but Magnatone made guitars, too. Paul Bigsby designed solid body guitars for Magnatone from 1955–1957. This Magnatone Mark III guitar was made in 1956 and showcases the classic Bigsby design aesthetic: simple, clean, with the luscious curves that typify mid-century modern.
This is an incredibly rare guitar. Branded “Lyric” it was manufactured by the Magnatone company in 1956. Compact and light weight, it sports a full 25 1/4 inch scale length and 1 5/8 inch nut width. Plays great with nice straight neck. Set up in-house and ready to go.
Comes with its original softshell case, too.
