1968 Guyatone LG-128T, Mosrite style, made in Japan.
This is rare, and historic, and a fantastic guitar.
Guyatone in a Mosrite Ventures style, electric guitar made in Japan 60s era.
This is the most popular model, which is the “slab body” version.
The LG-127T appeared in catalogues in the late 60’s, and the slab body Mosrite Ventures-esque model seemed to resonate most with players and the public for its looks, capabilities and performance.
Over time they have become legend as you could own one for decades and find anatomies and weird one-offs around. It is exciting to find this “rare” model, as it isn’t “Fender or Gibson rare”, its proper rare.
Fretboard is Rosewood Slab with small dots
The bolt on necks are made of Asian mahogany and it is very comfortable and easy to play, and all have a zero fret and string guide, like a real Mosrite.
The headstocks are a simplified version with a rudimentary “M” cut in the end.
The rosewood fretboards are always nice and they have small dot markers like a real Mosrite.
The pickups in these are a P-90, aka Mosrite style metal covered single coil with great output and clarity. Guyatone pickups made some of the best pickups from this era of the Japanese market.
The bridge is the standard Guyatone style from this period and the vibrato is clearly based on the Fender offset unit and is well made and strong.
It’s a 60s model, which is easy to tell 60’s versions from 70’s ones as the 60s have metal trussrod covers, as seen on this one.
Get this and get rocking with style.
