Hummingbird & Moustache Bridge by 


You may never see this combination on a guitar anywhere else again, the classic “Humingbird” design pickguard with a “moustache” style bridge. This is the way this unusual instrument was actually made.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    gimme.. reminds me of an old knock off I once had in the 70’s, though I know that seems impossible since I am only ummm 26?
    .. fantastic guitar

  • Hmmm… That must have been a Kiso Suzuki J-200 guitar! You owned one??? They are actually very rare and highly sought after today. Gibson sued their guitar division into oblivion, I’m told.

    What a beautiful capture and lighting…..love the pattern on this !! Great write up too ……simply gorgeous !

  • Thanks, Sean! I really appreciate your very kind comment! The guitar had elements from two different Gibson guitars (to try to avoid being sued.. but they got squashed anyway). It certainly gave this old axe a very different “look”.

    My best,

    This is a real beauty – never seen anything like it, & am not likely to, as you say. Who DID make this? Can’t quite read the inside label.

  • Thanks, Shiela!

    This is an Estrada Model 8200 Jumbo guitar made by Kiso Suzuki in Japan, in the late 1960’s or very early 70’s. Suzuki combined popular elements from the Gibson “Humming” and “J-200” models to create a very different looking Jumbo guitar.
