1966 Goya Electric Guitars catalogue
1966 Goya Electric Guitars catalogue, Goya was well-known for it's acoustic guitars, produced by Levin in Sweden; but in the mid 1960s they added a number of Italian-built electric guitars and basses. Semi-acoustic models such as the 105, 107 and 109 Rangemaster guitars and Panther II bass were made by Polverini, whilst solid body models 116 and 118 were made by Galanti. These were well-built good quality instruments, but perhaps too expensive to sell in large numbers.
1965 Vox Ace electric guitar
1965 Vox Ace electric guitar The Vox Ace was one of the early UK-designed Vox guitars produced by JMI in Dartford, Kent. It had been in production since at least 1962, but was redesigned for late 1963 with a more current look and a higher quality feel. The pickups were upgraded, as was the body; it was now thicker and made of solid wood. Despite this the guitar was now actually lighter in weight, due to a shorter overall length. Have a closer look at a sunburst-finished Vox Ace from 1965.

Futurama guitars of the 1960s

Futurama was a very well known name amongst British guitar bands of the early 1960s. It was a brand created by Selmer, who were the biggest instrument supplier in the UK at the time, but none of the guitars were British-made. George Harrison used one in his early days, and is quoted "it's a great guitar" in 1960s Futurama advertising. Earliest models, like Harrison's hailed from Czechoslovakia - made by Resonet, and later CSHN, but by 1963 higher-quality instruments by Swedish maker Hagstrom were being sold under the Futurama name.

The Hagstrom models were identical to the Hagstrom guitars sold in the United States and Europe, so for further information please refer to the relevant pages in the Hagstrom section of this site.
