Re: Masada guitar
I have a Masada guitar that I bought in 1974 at a guitar shop in Tuscaloosa Alabama. It is the Hummingbird look alike. It was made sometime around 72-74. The owner of the shop said that Masada made a line bluegrass guitars and violins and only made one line of acoustic like this. No other models were made. Mine is numbered 673. I too have searched for years to find out, but no one has any info on he internet.
: Same here . . . I'm in search of info, too. I recently got a Masada "Les Paul Custom" model violin-burst guitar for under two-bills, but no luck in finding any information on this line. Must be so rare (or esoteric) that not many folks own one. Heck, I'd like to know how many models and guitars were ever manufactured by Masada, let alone learning WHO "Masada" is/was! Consider ourselves "lucky" for owning such gems. Would like to learn more history on them if anyone out there knows?! I'm proud to have one of my own now . . . the craftsmanship was worth the expense.
: Hope to find some good news on these someday!
: : I am also searching for information. I bought my Masada Telecaster copy back in the 80's for about $20 from a graduating college student. Experts told my brother, who had it for several years, that in some ways it is actually better than the Fender it was copying. But I can't find a word about a Masada brand on the Internet.
: : : Sorry, I can't help, but I have a Masada Telecaster copy that I bought in Harrisonburg, Virginia pawnshop for $40 in 1984. It's a fairly solid backup guitar and I've never seen nor heard anything else about Masada. Did you find out anything at all about Masada? Thanks- Slim

: : : I have a Masada guitar that someone told me is like the Gibson hummingbird. Can anyone tell me where I can find out information about the Masada guitar? I would like to know what year it was made and some information about it.
