This past weekend on Lawrence Welk I saw Neil LeVang playing what looked to be a teardrop shaped acoustic guitar. I searched the web for identification, but all I found was electric teardrop shaped guitars - no acoustic. Does anybody know about this guitar? Looks pretty slick, but I question availability to buy one. This show was from 1973. I took a couple of pictures (attached) but was too late to get a larger and better picture of it.
I recall seeing one of these type guitars in a music store in the late 60's or early 70's in SoCal. I played it and was not impressed by the tone or the volume. But then I am a dreadnought fan. I also wasn't much of a player in those days either. I can't even begin to remember the brand name. Ventura was making / importing a lot of oriental instruments then. Crown was another maker name that has gone into the history books. Good luck in your search. R/
