1965 Magnatone Guitar designed by Paul Barth in Salt Lake City for $449

This seller is offering a very rare guitar - though it is missing part of the bridge so that could be very hard to find if you wanted to get an original replacement part.  Magnatone produced several different lines of electric guitars over the years some designed by Paul Bigsby, others by Paul Barth after he left Rickenbacker and before he formed his own Bartell company.   This one appears to have Rickenbacker "toaster" pickups. 

Note:  I believe these were all originally sunburst so this guitar may well have been stripped and refinished.

vintage magnatone electric guitar rickenbacker richenbacher Paul barth - $449

i'm not 100 percent on the serial number or the model of this guitar, but a little googling has led me to think it's from the early 60s and is a mark vii or something thereabouts. it's a full size electric guitar. missing the bridge and bridge cover (as you can see in the pics) but it otherwise still very nice overall. i bought this at an estate sale some time ago intending to get it playing but have had it a long time and it just hangs on the wall looking pretty. electronics were tested when i first got it and it played well, but i didn't want to leave it assembled with non-original parts. so you'd be buying this as is/as pictured. has a cool paisley pickguard and matching pattern on the neck. tuning pegs work as they should. guitar is very lightweight and very cute. will ship via parcel post or ups - whichever a buyer prefers. no case included. located near 70th south and redwood. call or text 801*** ****
