"King of the West" Mountie Guitar!
My flea market find of 2012! Ok, maybe it's not worth a million bucks, but it's very cool!! The "King of the West" guitar was made in Canada by the Eatons Co. between 1959 and 1961. It sold for $17.95. My little guitar had the misunfortune of having it's moveable bridge screwed down. It also does not have it's original tail piece and one tuning key is not original. None the less, the body of this cute little guitar is in excellent condition! It's bursting with character and generates conversation with just about everyone who sees it. It made my flea marketing day well worth it!
