finders, keepers… nice acoustic, from India?
I found a little bit of information of the acoustic guitar I found at the Guitar Research Centre in Calcutta, India. Model MB 265 (Topaz) is similar to the guitar, but without the f-holes or tailpiece. On the back of this guitar’s headstock, it reads “Model 265” so I don’t know what to think. As I mentioned, there’s a label inside the body that reads “Bose Enterprise.” I found an address in Kolkata (Calcutta)
17/1b/1, K B Sarani Mall Road, Dumdum Central Jail Bus Stop, Mall Road, Kolkata, – 700080
for a manufacturer of PVC heat shrink material with that name. There’s also an electronics company in Utah with the same name
8180 S 700 E
Sandy, UT 84070
for which I couldn’t find further information. Said the latter, neither company seems to manufacture, distribute and/or sell guitars. I guess this is another mystery guitar (STARfire), but nonetheless it seems to be a descent guitar — shape, quality, sound, well taken care of and all (just a minor nick on the back of the headstock).
