Re: Norma Guitar

I also have a Norma guitar that a friend gave to me. It’s very cool --- hollow body double-cutaway electric guitar with whammy bar and really nice sounding pick-ups. I don't know anything about it and I'm trying to research the Norma company.

A friend of mine has a Norma drumset. Our idea is that we want to have a band called "Norma" in which I play the guitar, he plays drums, and anybody else plays any other Norma instruments. That's why I'm eager to find out anything more about this Norma company.

If anyone had any info to share please e-mail me!

Re: Norma Guitar

I have a norma 3/4 size guitar that I inherited from my uncle. I am 16 years old and the guitar is at least 5 years older than me. I know nothing about it, however, because my uncle died before i was born.

Re: Norma Guitar

I have had an old beat-up non-functioning norma electric archtop (hollow body) since i was 13(in 1984). A friend gave it to me and said i could have it if i could fix it... well like 20 years later i fixed it! and had the electrical redone for like $60.00. it needed some new parts (basiclly EVERYTHING) but i really wanted an archtop and knew i could fix this one up to sound pretty cool.... what i have found out about these guitars is that they really arent worth anything... i thought this one may have been from the late 50's early 60's so i may be worth something.. but as it turns out most people i have talked to about restoring it says its not worth anything that they were just little copies made in the 50's-60's and bought in the US at probably sears or something.... oh well I DONT CARE i really like it and its made well, so for the sheer vintage look and great feel I LOVE IT!-jj

Re: Norma Guitar

hi! i also have a norma guitar. I got it for Christmas in 1969 or 70 I believe. It's been passed around among friends but I have it back again. Any info from anyone on history or value to date? Thanks!

Re: Norma Guitar

I too have a Norma 6 string acoustic bought in the late 60's. I always thought it was a Canadian made product. She still has great fingering action-and a pretty tone. The internal bridges are slightly warpped but the neck is fine. Still a real playable instrument.

Re: Norma Guitar

I have a Norma guitar. It's over 30 years old. I received it as a Christmas present from my father when I was a child. After all these years, give or take a nick or two, it still looks and sounds great.

My first electric guitar was a Norma. I bought it in the late 60's, early 70's. I still have it...and just brought it in to a guitar shop to get its electronics working again.
It has 4 pickups...4 on/off switches...an r/s switch and a switch for low, medium and high tone.
It was a fun guitar to learn on. But I, too...know nothing about the Norma company.

Re: Norma Guitar

I just baught a norma guitar and a norma amp. on ebay. The guitar has a number under the neck 695 I assume its the 695th one made. Unfortionatly the lower pick up dosn't work. How would I get it Fixed? Is the company still in business? I dont know the real value but am trying to find out.Any help is apreciated. Thanks

Re: Norma Guitar

i have a norma base guitar and am trying to find out more info

Re: Norma Guitar

I have a six string Norma acoustic guitar. Bought at a garage sale. Had to put strings on and repair bridge. It has great sound and a very nice to play neck. Compared to some guitars that now cost about $500 this plays as good or better. (better tha a gibson epiphone). Also would like to know more.

I found one at a local shop, 60's Norma, resembles a Strat LIKE guitar, but with a sweet design... It has two switch where you would fidn hte pickup selector on a gibson les paul. Its got a few nicks and such, but it sounds REALLY good and the guy only wants 60 bucks, I plan on buying it, re-fretting, and doing some custom fix up on the body. And He said pretty much everything is original... A pretty sweet guitar if you ask me... If and when I buy it I'll get a picture, email if interested!

Re: Norma Guitar

Well... I'm researching this to since I have a Norma Accoustic. From what I have found they were only made between 1965-1970something. Most were made in japan including mine although some were made in Italy. They were made in the same factory as the Sear silvertone's. Most are considered vintage guitars especially the electrics from the 60's. From what I have seen electrics in good condition are worth a good bit of money. I'm still trying to find more info on mine though. Like what woods is it made of. and what was the exact year of manufacture. It says FG-10 on it. It plays great. Has great sound and plays prety easily except mine doesn't seem to like you using the first fret. lol... just trying to add some info here

Re: Norma Guitar

sorry--no help here. I am looking for some info on my guitar, too. same thing: norma fg-10. i've had it for 23 years. any info?
thanks for any and all help...

Norma accoustic guitars

I bought my Norma accoustic in 1971 from a lady dealer who bought-out other stores going out of business. I paid $50. for guitar,case and strings. Best $50. I`ve ever spent. The sound gets better everyday. I have played the local market a lot, and fronted a Jamboree stage for 12 years (did the microphone work and sang), where I saw many a performer and their guitars come and go. Everyone was envious of my good sounding guitar. I applied a Dean Markeley electric pickup into the round hole and "wow" what a sound. Wouldnt take nothing for it. I own 7 accoustics,4 ele and three ele bass` guitars. I take my Norma everywhere. I am in the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and get lots of opportunities.
A friend owns a music store and looked up the "Norma" brand. It said- Norma guitars were manufactured in Japan between 1966 and 1972 by the Japanese to compete with the Gibson HummingBird. The look is almost identical (Check out the Gibson Hummingbird played by Jonathan "BuggieMan" Long from Baton Rouge La. His looks exactly like my Norma. I too was curious for thirty years about my good sounding guitar. Looks aint everything!

Norma Guitar

I have an acoustic Norma guitar also. Mine has been sitting on a stand for over 24 years and picked up now and then for a strum. It still sounds great and not even a warp. Mine says FG-39 on the inside. Anyone have any info on these guitars?

Norma guitar wiring diagram

I'm looking for a picture of the wiring of a Norma electric guitar with 1 vol 1 tone switch phase switch and 2 pickups, or a wiring diagram.

Norma guitar wiring diagram/schematic

I'm looking for the wiring diagram/schematic of a 6-string Norma guitar Burns copy. This guitar has 4 on/off switches on upper horn area of body, 4 pickups, 4 volume knobs, a L-M-H switch, plus a R and S switch (rhthym and solo) and a whammy bar ! I've never seen so many knobs and switches on one guitar. It's in great shape too.

AGAIN - ANYONE KNOW WHERE TO GET A WIRING DIAGRAM FOR THIS GUITAR ? OR EVEN STEER ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND I'LL DO THE FOOTWORK.

tHANKS IN ADVANCE !

Norma FG5

Just a little note for the "history buffs".....

I'm repairing (replacing bridge) an old Norma FG5 Acoustic that my wife had received new on her 10th Birthday approx. April 1975. Just wanted to tip ya'all off that this one has a small sticker still attached that says "MADE IN KOREA". Also, this instrument is a 3/4 size (parlor?) suitable for youngsters to start out with.

Happy pickin's
