Satellite, Anyone seen one?

Post by Westbone on Wed Sep 28, 2011 4:54 pm

Acquired this guitar, decent build quality, good pups(3 magnets in each) sound very good.
The tuners are made in Japan. Brass inlay in the fingerboard.
Nice guitar, anyone else seen these? Read that some were marked as Memphis.

Satellite also made some rubbish but this one's ok.

Really nice axe, Damian! Any clue to the builder yet?

Neck thru with attached wings, I counted 17 frets to the upper bout join..... Cort, maybe? scratch

Those machineheads look abit "Gotoh-ish" as well..... Google is your friend I suppose.

They're were many copies in that style back in the day, and that's a nice one!!!

To make something neck through, that's some serious commitment to quality on the manufacturer's end. Great score.

cheers cheers cheers Happy New Guitar Day! cheers cheers cheers

The neck join on yours looks more difficult to achieve given the offset nature of the horns... otherwise very similar indeed.

Ive often seen these on ebay

One went the otherweek for 125 or so.

Well made guitars, I watch them on ebay whenever they come up, but I cant justify spending what they eventually sell for.

Trying to sell off some gear anyway to fund something with Gibson on the headstock and a P90 next to the bridge Cool
