A local pawn shop has a cool looking Montaya pseudo-Mosrite guitar. They're asking $125, but I think I could talk them down.

It looks way cool, but they didn't have an amp to plug into. Couldn't see a tag anywhere that stated the country of origin, but I'm guessing it's Korean or Japanese. Has a faux-bigsby.

I didn't have a camera with me, but I found an identical one on Fleabay (here's the link)

Anybody have any info on these? Google turned up next to nothing. It looks like it would be a fun guitar to fix up/mod.

Pics from the above auction:

Looks MIJ, but could be MIK. Almost nothing about them online.

it's not worth $120. maybe half that much. it's not really worth modding as nothing about it is quality really. the only thing of interest about it is the pickups really. and those pickups aren't even that great as these teisco style guitars go.
