ATTENTION!
My packaging is the best, because I prepare it EXACTLY for each musical instrument! Every box is made of the wooden frames and panels, so that, it can withstand heavy loads of shipping. It is pretty heavy, so it is a bit more expensive to send, but I believe that we can not save on the safety of such fragile things like musical instruments
____________________

Check out this hot piece of Soviet history. The date of its introduction in mass production is unknown, but I it must be somewhen around 1970's. It was produced in very small quantity, so you won't find this guitar again. 
The body sports an extremely intriguing octagonal shape with a giant Russian letter "Ж" (Zh) embossed on it, which must remind the proud owner of this deadly weapon the name of its manufacturer - Zhitomir Factory of Musical Instruments. The label inside has a picture of some cool guy dressed in black suit - perhaps a Beatle - playing this guitar.

 The best thing about "Zh" is the material of its body. It's aluminium (!!!), just a thick sheet of painted aluminium folded in shape of... well... guitar. What kind of evil mind could put forward an idea to produce guitar from aluminium in one of the most forested regions of Ukraine?

I think it's perfectly suit for true Norvegian black metal musicians (or as a present for vintage rare collector), because the sonic palette is really uncompromisingly evil, to say nothing of this instrument's looks.

Here is a video by VopliVidopliasova (Ukraine, exUSSR, 1993), using such guitar with installed pickup


and some real photoes:


I DON'T THINK THAT YOU WILL MEET THIS GUITAR AGAIN!

If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
