c1970 INVICTA ESTUDIO SOLID
(MADE IN SPAIN BY THE KELLER COMPANY)
COURTESY OF XOSE CRISANTO GANDARA, GALICIA, SPAIN:
The Vibrato Tailpiece and Control Knobs are
identical to those used by Hofner in this period. The Pickups are not Hofner
standard units in appearance, but could well have been made by the Franz Pix
Company - Hofner's main supplier in Erlangen, Germany.
Those tuners also look familiar.
..........but the bridge is
definitely not a Hofner design. The "ebonised" maple (?) cross-piece however
could almost have been borrowed from off the Hofner 72/20 standard bridge
Two photos showing the laminated timber
construction of the Invicta's body.
