I purchased a new guitar just recently. Am not able to identify the brand and it has no stickers inside to figure out. Am hoping with the pictures and markings someone can help with that.

Thank you

  • The M markings will be the manufacturer logo of the company that made the machine heads, so won’t help identifying the actual guitar. Commented Mar 11, 2020 at 10:48
  • Did you already ask in this shop: hours.be/muziekparadijs/kalmthout/1 Commented Mar 11, 2020 at 11:01
  • I figured that is where the guitar came from or was serviced since the sticker was on but it turns out they are not in business anymore. gva.be/cnt/aid717535/muziekparadijs-sluit-de-deuren

  • I found the closing down notice from 08, but why do their business hours still show?

I did a bit more research and I'm pretty confident that this is a Musima (East German) guitar since the stylized M on the tuners matches the logo of that manufacturer, plus the Made in GDR sticker indicates that it's an East German guitar.


Closest I can find is a Musima Western 12 string - Made in Germany in the 1980s. No match on the fingerboard inlays or the roundel, though.
