1960s Vintage Crucianelli 12-string Acoustic Electric Guitar - Italy Vox Eko:
Here is a 1960's 12-string acoustic electric guitar made in Italy by Crucianelli. It is very similar to Vox and Eko guitars of the same era. In fact, Crucianelli built guitars for Vox in the 60s.
Overall the guitar looks nice for its age, but it needs some TLC.
The action is OK, but the guitar needs a new set of strings (it is currently missing one) and could benefit from a setup. There is some fret wear,especially in the cowboy chord region. The nut is missing a small chunk that separates the high E strings and might need replacing eventually. The pickup and volume/tone controls work, but are scratchy and could use contact cleaner. The wiring for the pickup looks original but looks like it needs to be mounted to something inside the guitar. I have what looks like a mounting bracket for the wiring that was rattling around inside the guitar when I got it and Iwill include it in the sale. The body is structurally OK with no caving of the bridge. There are some cracks that I have done my best to show in the photos. None of them seem to affect the structural integrity of the guitar, and unless you look at the guitar at an angle, you can't even see them. There are some cracks in the lacquer on the back of the neck. The back of the guitar is nice with only an inch long crack towards the upper left.
Please look at all the pictures and if you have any questions, please ask before offerding.
