Vintage Realistic (Univox) 335 copy in Oakland CA for $100




Here is another cool Japanese 335 copy - this one has what look like P90 type single coil pickups and it has the more tightly clustered Vol and Tone knobs (note that they don't overlap the F-holes). I suppose it's up to you whether having the "Realistic" (i.e. Radio Shack) badge makes it ultra-cool or ultra dorky.

This is almost certainly a product of the same factory that produced Aria Diamond, Ventura, Bruno and Univox branded guitars.

  1. I have one and have been contacted by others who also have one. This guitar based on the plate on the back of the neck is probably built under an Epiphone contract. The plates are definitely Epiphone's. I won't post the link as requested but Radioshackcatalogs dot com (1969) page 77 has the add for this guitar.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL READERS

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
