Vibra Guitars revisited

I bought a Vibra model 64 acoustic. I picked it up on ebay cheap. Doesn't have a serial# or say where it was made. My guess is early 70's
the materials look ok. like a maple/mahogany laminate back and sides.
Looks like a solid top. A crack in the top is also visible from the inside. I looked wth a light and a mirror. It has Gibson double X bracing. Unusual for early Japanese knock offs. It looks like it was put together in a hurry with decent materials. There's still a thin paint line around the edge of the top.I assume a line to follow while cutting the top? there are splotches of glue visible, even glue smeared on the back nowhere near a brace. The neck is dead straight and the action and intonation are great. Sound is surprisingly good.
I looked all over to find out who made it. Read every post in here.
The logo inside Product of "B&J" is the same as this one

for anyone interested. So we know Vibra guitars are a product of B&J which is owned by Kaman of Ovation fame. Trouble is B&J had guitars made by everyone. Kay and Harmony were still around and those guys made alot of B&J's instruments for them. El Degas were also a product of B&J.
Could even be made by Kent. Anyway I like the one I have. They don't seem to sell for much. But of all the MIJ acoustics I have played and owned over the years I have no problem giving this one an 8 in comparison. And as good as some of the stuff they make nowdays that cost north of 500

Re: Tamara electric guiutars

I too have a Tamara but an acoustic. It is a very nice, very well made guitar with a beautiful ringing tone. Like you, I can find no info on this thing. I have played very few acoustics that sound this good. The lack of info is frustrating!

Re: Tamara electric guiutars

I also have a tamara acoustic. When I bought it I was told by the dealer that Ibenez wanted to get into the acoustic business but did not want to tranish the name if they failed...
