Description

Here's an odd one! This appears to be a very early 1980's Melobar Model 1RL steel that you can play standing up. The guitar will accommodate 10 strings, and the included instructions will show you how to tune and play it.
There is a long and colorful history of Melobar here, and elsewhere on the web: http://melobarted.blogspot.com/p/true-melobar-story.html

This guitar fits into the early 80's story of the company, being that it includes the Boll Lawrence 10 string pickup.

There is some cool case candy that comes along with this guitar. The original gig bag is in great shape and holds slides, picks, a Melobar brochure, and a set of instructions that originally came with the guitar.

There is some wear, a couple holes that appear to be locations of strap buttons, and it needs a set of strings. We're just going to go ahead and pass it along like this and let the next owner set it all up as they like.
