That's actually an Elektrona, a more rare version off the Strato. I used to own one, too...
I believe this kinda headstock was only used in 1969.
i love delay SO much ...that i procrastinate all the time.

This looks incredible...so googling I found that the middle pickup has 6 individual coils, and those slider pots are an individual volume control for each string!?

Does it work? that sounds wild!

That's beyond cool. Also a huge fan of the spring loaded volume swell you see on a lot of Framus models from this period.

That is beyond cool! Why is that not a feature available on guitars today?

it's SUCH a good idea, and really nicely done. Only change I'd make would be to have it wired to a stereo output, ie be able to send each of the strings to a different amp :?
