OK, what the hell is this?!?!?! Nate DeMont discovered this treasure and it has a lot of people stumped. Any help/suggestions/facts would be awarded in good karma!!
So it’s obviously a travel guitar, and that extra thingy down there is an arm rest. It’s detachable!
Very strange, very unique, very beautiful. The design reminds me of a heart, like if Romeo played guitar this is what he’d use to woo Juliet, from outside her window.
Never heard of Gilbert before…
Was this a one off? Homemade? It even came in the original case!!!
Check out some of the components. I have a 60s Italian guitar with the same bridge.
That bridge says “Welson” (hint, hint, Italian?)
Definitely 1960s here…
Well, whaddya think? Weird huh?
