    A Pignose Guitar, its been hanging up in the living room in our house for a long time, and gets played every once in a while. I really like the aesthetic of the clear body and the pignose dial. I don't know much about it what year it was made or history... I would love to hear more if there are any pignose aficionados out there.

      I've got one just like this. I contacted Pignose and they said they discontinued these lucite guitars about 15 years ago. They were offered in (I think..) red, blue and green. The only colors on the guitar were on the headstock-I have a green ome. There was a design flaw in the floating trem unit-due to the speaker magnet, you could only use 2 springs-there was spaces for 5 springs, but the magnet blocked them. 2 springs were not enough to hold the trem in tune, so I cut a block of cherry to fit in the trem cavity, like we used to do to make a Fender Strat trem unit into a "hardtail". These really are rockin' little guitars. Will probably be listing mine on Ebay-more an acoustic player that 'lectric, but it's just so darn cute!
