A brandname has surfced from the headstock it says "Klira Cort"
Are you trying to assign credit or blame on the maker. I wish I could unsee that.
It's definately a variation of the Hondo Death Dagger. If I'm not mistaken, Hondo guitars were mainly built by Samick in Korea during the 80's. In theory this guitar could have been purchased by a Mom and Pop music stor and branded anything. branded anything. I know there are some death daggers that are branded "Yakima".
that is one stabby guitar.
Should at least be worth as much as a Gibson, then.
I think it may have been made by JTG of Nashville, it was a high end maker though, and that tailpieece looks weird.
Found an alleged prototype that was on reverb, I could only find pictures, the original listing is gone.
A second alleged prototype.
Don't use fb, but here's a further clue.
Logo looks like EB to me.???
I think Hondo and Klira shared some resources back in the day. My Klira has a nice big clock letter "H" on the headstock.
Eh, the guitar body itself doesn't bother me too much, but what is up with that pickle-stabber headstock?
That bridge looks like some kinda 60's/70's nightmare.
And to think I whined about finding a case for my Flying V knock-off...
Possibly a homemade in the style of a JTG Infinity/Infinox? The body looks roughly the right shape but the HW is obviously wrong, and does not have the cutout for the heel trussrod adjustment. The trem/bridge (as others have noticed) looks like something off a 60s era import guitar with its primative tremolo and integraded non-intonatable bridge.
Does the headstock look carved up or added-onto to get the shape? It does however have 24 frets.
Maybe a JTG neck with a homebrew body? But then why the trussrod cover with the inscrutable number?
Quite the mystery.
That's a K-Bar "Last Stand" guitar, built briefly in the mid-80s by an upstart company in the midwest. The EU barred it from being exported because of its "implied aggression," and the UN Human Rights Committee attempted to impose sanctions against the factory for weapons manufacturing, but everyone just laughed and ignored them and eventually the sanctions were just forgotten about.
The company shut down manufacturing in 1984 after a tragic factory accident in which someone turned the conveyor belt up to 8 and three employees in shipping and receiving were inadvertently stabbed.
You've got a keeper there.
Pretty sure these guys would love one
The former '80s metalhead in me loves that shape for some reason.
Only thing I'm thinking is that bridge looks unique and you probably can't get parts or drop in something else easily if it needs work.
Whatever it is, it looks fast.
Ha. To me that guitar says "So thankful for all the women out there with 'daddy' issues."
Copy/Paste is easier!
The bridge is not original, the most matching guitars I found had a Kahler style system.
No, the headstock is indeed the original one.
Not very likely, it has a neck through body construction.
The only brandname we found was "Kliracort" I already mentioned that but it got lost in all the "pointy" and hair metal jokes.
So I'll ask again, does anybody know what the deal is with "Kliracort" since I can't find anything online.
