Check out this incredibly rare, Italian-made Mod Roch 6 (note the spelling of Rock!) electric solid body guitar from the ever creative and inventive mind of Antonio Pioli, aka Wandre! The model name is conveniently located on the 7th fret scroll inlay (most of these didn't have the model name inlaid in the position marker as I understand it -- there are so few examples to compare it to). Virtually all examples of this model seem to have some degree of variation between them. A rare opportunity to own one of only a handful of these very unusual guitars made by the Wandre factory in the early part of the 1960's. This instrument is in excellent, factory original condition and plays quite well. There are no structural issues and it's ready to play right out of the box. Looks a lot like a Henry Moore sculpture... really!

The same model of Wandre recently sold on ebay a few months ago to a best offer, with the original listing starting at $12,000... http://www.ebay.com/itm/WANDRE-ROCK6-605-Guitar-Vintage-Electric-Guitar-1960s-Made-In-Italy-RARE-/291020827538?pt=Guitar&hash=item43c2316b92&nma=true&si=WU9m%252BnaJaRjBm%252FM%252BI2oISyN4uHg%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 Seems like a good starting point, so I've decided to do the same...

These bizarre electric guitars are some of the most, if not THE most far-out designs Wandre ever put into production, and they are quite rare to find. 

You can find out more about these fascinating instruments here... http://www.fetishguitars.com/wandre/ and here... http://guitarz.blogspot.ca/2008/05/what-is-that-guitar-that-eddy-grant-is.html


A clip of guitarist Eddy Grant of The Equals playing his Wandre Mod Roch 6 during a taping of "Baby Come Back" on the British television music program, Top of the Pops ca. 1968. 

I have 100% positive feedback in all transactions I have conducted over the past sixteen years with buyers and sellers on ebay. I know how to package an instrument safely for shipping, so bid with confidence. I would be more than happy to comply with any reasonable request to photograph additional details should a potential buyer request it. Good luck!
