Re: 1971 Ensenada Guitar For sale

I own an Ensanada 12-String guitar. I own and have owned many a fine guitar in my day as well. Off brand models such as a 1976 Ibanez Les-Paul Custom - also, as with the Ensada, manufactured in Japan. Sweet playing beauty. A Martin D-28, enough said on that. Also a Takamini Electro-acoustic, a very speedy fellow with quick action for those apareggios and scale sessions. Ahh...but the Ensanada is in my humble opinion a very trusty guitar for everyday playing. Purchased my Ensanada for $275 with a hardshell and a Dean pickup, mint condiiton might I add in 1991. It would be worth it.

Ensenada Guitars

Here's all that I can tell you:
Ensenada guitars were produced in Japan in the 70's. They were distributed in the US by Strum & Drum company of Chicago. This company(strum and drum) owned the National trademark in the 70's and produced Japanese National guitars for a while.
Ensenada's are pretty good guitars, kinda rare but not very valuable.

Instruments previously produced in Japan, circa 1970s. Distributed by Strum & Drum of Chicago, Illinois.
The Ensenada trademark was a brand name of U.S. importers Strum & Drum of Chicago, Illinois. Strum and Drum were later owners of the National trademark, acquired when Valco´s holdings were auctioned off. Ensenada instruments were distributed between roughly 1973 to 1974.

Nowadays Fender makes a line of guitars under the Ensenada name, but these have nothing to do with the vintage Ensenada line of guitars.
Having learned to play guitar in the 1960s, I've seen lots of guitars come and go. I have never heard of a vintage "electric" Ensenada guitar except for a few acoustic guitars that have been modified by adding a transducer.
My Ensenada FG-40 plain looking acoustic parlor size guitar is one of the old Japanese models imported in the 1970s by the Strum & Drum Company of Chicago, IL. Mine has a white label with the model number as well as a little gold "MADE IN JAPAN" sticker on the back of the headstock, between the tuning gear.
Its my experience that these were actually some of the best made guitars for the outlay that one could buy on a working-person's wages back in the day. They cost half the price of equivalent Yamaha and Ibanez models but were on a par in quality, durability and playability.
My forty year-old parlor model still sounds better today than my nearly new Dean Exotica dreadnought does without plugging the Dean into an amp. In a way I'm kinda glad that my Ensenada doesn't hold a high collector value, or I'd be tempted to sell it. Then I'm sure I'd be angry with myself for getting rid of a guitar that I like so much to play. Cathy

Re: 1971 Ensenada Guitar For sale

I have had an Ensenada acoustic guitar that I picked up from a guy in Florida in 1980. Where can
I find more about this guitar maker ? Everyone I have asked has never heard of them. All searches
on the web come up empty with the exception of the fact that Fender made guitars in Ensenada, Mexico.
