    Hello everyone, found an old hollow acoustic guitar on local ads the other day. What this unbranded thing could be guys?

    I think that's an Egmund Lucky 7 with a Hofner pickguard on it. As far as I know they sourced these from a few places (including Framus) so they vary a bit but if you look for Egmund archtops you should see examples that look like this one.

    I was also thinking of Framus but couldn't find an exact model like this. Could be an Egmont too.

    There were lots of branded and unbranded Framus copies about. Nothing really changes.
