Egmond Guitars

I have a 1960's EGMOND. Pictured here. I wrote it that way because it's written in huge letters on the huge headstock. It is the largest dread I have. How about you people out there? Any EGMOND owners? Any EGMOND stories.

I can't determine how to get in contact. What I will try to do is download the pages.If anyone out there has the same inclination don't let me stop you.

I know. I saw that. I wonder why? Perhaps I'll write to them.

Hans,

Thank you so much. I agree. There are certain songs that are made for that sort of guitar. I think "Stealin" is perfect.

It is an Egmond Toledo S2.

It has no pick-guard, but apart from that it is just like my Toledo S2.

I just got a Stadium guitar made by Egmond in the 1960's. I haven't been able to trace the serial number anywhere so if anyone out there has access to or knowledge of an Egmond databease I would be grateful. How does it sound you ask? Well..it's completely laminated. Single piece top. Has the resonance of a cardboard box. BUT...for jug band music it's perfect. It's tiny also. I don't have a picture but there is another for sale on Ebay.

Well. I think you're right about where it was made. Would rather it was from Holland like my uber dreadnought is but having it, if I get it, is still part of the story. My better half, Beth, loves the dutch guitar.

I think Hans maybe right about it. Being made in Korea especially as the made in label is partly missing, needless to say the important part.

Comment by Hans Gatu on August 30, 2013 at 11:29pm

It is either the very last ones, made in Holland and later labeled Alpha and Vega (Approx. 1980/1981).

Or it is made in Korea, as Egmond tried to reduce the cost in the late 70's by having some guitars made there.

My guess is that this is a Korean made guitar.
