Below: Another of my favorite designs, the EKO 700, in two models, 4V and 3V. According to my neighbor, one of the best playing guitars in the entire collection, the single pickup 1967 Red Cobra. Below: According to me, one of the best playing guitars in the collection, the Goya Rangemaster. As is the beautiful Red Galanti and the Espana 335. The GL Rangemaster is another outstanding Italian guitar. Then, the ever-popular but VERY hard to find 1967 Teisco May Queen.
I have owned many Domino Californian’s over the years (the VOX Phantom copy). Domino made one of the better quality reproduction guitars in the late sixties.

It is hard to imagine today, but in the early 1960’s having an electric guitar in your home was rare.
In fact, it was likely that your parents were steering you in the direction of accordion lessons. The Beatles – and of course others – stopped all that.
The Airline Guitars were sold through Montgomery Ward.
Below: Perhaps my favorite 1960’s guitars, the Domino’s.
