1960's Norma EG 408-2TK Electric Guitar

This is a Norma model EG-405-2 Electric Guitar from the 1960's with 2 goldfoil pickups. The prize on this guitar is the goldfoil pickups and I've already used them for another project.

NORMA HISTORY: Normas were built in Japan between 1965 to 1970 by the Tombo Company and distributed in the U.S. by Strum´N Drum, Inc. of Chicago, Illinois. The company specialized in copying Italian guitars like EKO and Goya and sold them in the U.S.A as NORMA's. The most blatant EKO copy is the SDEG 490-4, a guitar that confused the heck out of MANY. The Tombo Company is still in business, but these days they specialize in harmonica production.






This guitar will be sold on ebay soon. Check my about me page for the ebay listing.

I've seen that model and with 1 of the goldfoil pickups I'd estimate it at $75-100 in typical 40 year old condition.

Hi, I have a guitar that I believe is a Norma. On the back it is stamped EG305-1L NO. 410. Can you tell me anything about this? It has a single coil pickup in really good condition. On the back it also says Japan.
