Just arrived a 1933 Vivi-tone Acoustic-Electric Guitar! ⠀
⠀ This extremely rare Vivi-Tone guitar is a fascinating example of Lloyd Loar and partner Lewis A. Williams' pioneering efforts in the creation of electric fretted instruments in the early 1930's. The design is utterly unique, as well as being one of the earliest electric Spanish-style guitars ever commercially made. The Vivi-Tones were predated only by the lost Stromberg-Voisinet electrics that are virtually unknown, and the very earliest Rickenbacker Electro models. ⠀

Just arrived for #fenderfriday a 1945 K & F Student Lap Steel Electric Guitar! This plain and unassuming steel is an example of Leo Fender's first commercially produced stringed instrument, a seed from which the entire Fender legend would grow. It carries the "K & F" brand-the "F" standing for "Fender "and the "K" for Clayton Orr "Doc" Kauffman, Leo's first partner and the person who talked him into building guitars in the first place. These lap steels were only available locally in California for a very limited period between November 1945 and mid-1946, and are extremely rare. Kauffman left the business in early 1946 but with typical Fender frugality, the instruments still carried the "K&F" logo for several more months until the nameplates were used up.
