1955 Magnatone Mark III


In 1955 Magnatone hired P.A. Bigsby to design them a new line of electric guitars. This was his first model, the Mark III. It’s pretty basic but a very cool little guitar. This is the earliest version with the neck through the body construction which disappeared in 1956. This is a 100% original example and both plays and sounds great! The Bigsby designed pickups in these early Magnatones are some of the best ever made.
