- electric guitars
Dates of manufacture:
The Ardlsey electric guitar was manufactured by the Italian Crucianelli company for an American distributor (possibly Ardsley of New York). The same model was distributed under other brand names as well.
It has a sparkle finish typical of the accordion makers turned guitar builders of Castelfidardo. The four humbucking pickups are controlled by a row of rocker switches that would not look out of place on a kitchen applicance.
