Title: Magenta (brand not the color) Guitars
Post by: ducktrapper on November 01, 2015, 12:32:14 PM
I've probably asked this question before but has anyone ever come across this brand in their travels. I've only seen two in my life, both in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. One was a wood resonator dobro-ish thing and kind of crappy but I had a maple dread that was pretty nice. Solid spruce top and really lovely flame maple back and sides. The thing was a canon. I sold it in Montreal to help finance my first Larrivée. I believe I paid around $250.00 for it in 1974 and it replaced my first red tag Yamaha. That was a mistake but it was louder and I was a belter and strummer. I've since got a new red tag and I'd love to find an old Magenta like the one I had in a pawn shop or something.
