Welson Guitar
My Welson "Playboy", made in Italy, was purchased in Orange in 1964.
The easel is height adjustable and floating, but already too high. Manufacturing is sloppy because partion to "Yeye" who liked breaking guitatres at that time! but not me ...
Question manufacturing quality, what I saw on mine removed:
Painting of a beautiful red vermilion, is fully cracked above / below but it just me who does not have much respect humidity of storage and also, it is a semi-hollow domed against 3 ply plywood 3mm, in tension, with little internal reinforcements. Stiffness in the extension of the handle is provided by several square 20x20 pine glued together and raw logs.
handle it with its curved keys is very enjoyable to play and it is always perfect. It has not moved.
Regarding "electronics", 2 slide switches mics, 2 volume pots / "tone" and 3 resistors Ducati 125VI 100000k 20% 125 470 000 VI pf 20% and 1 (gray-orange-black-brown) ?
One could say that it looks like the amateur DIY.
There is obviously no shield and ground on 2 humbuckers and the lyre, include a piece of stripped at each end and wrapped around the screws microphones thread.
This guitar over 50 years always been part of my moves and despite its lack of cover, was still pretty resilient.
Me being handed guitar, I dismounted to give him a "young" and customize it a bit, but making quality, I'll go back after cleaning and allow "in its own juice" and then buy another. Perhaps a specialist can give me an estimate for the view from a different perspective than "love."

Welson Guitar
Guitar made in Italy, more or less affiliated with EKO. Guitar about 1962 on the same form as black and white but only 2 microphones manufacturing EKO.
So the stick seems stuck, rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets, fret 0, mechanical outdoors, they suffer, floating metal bridge (yes ...), simple tailpiece screwed on the table, no vibrato, the body is decorated accordion so of the 50s, as a eko, white and black handle past, black bakelite plate, these are keys that activate the 2 single coils with 3 possible combinations, the off position. volume and tone. Guitar quite "twangy" in the shadows and yéyé kind.
If the guitar is vintage, look no rare woods dense and well, it's against the plated and black lacquered handle seems to be light maple, provided it has not budged in 10 years of playing and 30 years as a granary.

UTILIZATION

handle fairly rustic, round, narrow chord height generous but playable, the floating bridge allows a very rough adjustment of the height and accuracy. Guitar super light for its size, comfort, correct, access treble means but it's not a very modern guitar either!

SOUNDS

His side, c'set ... amazing!
micro bridge = responsible for its acute, but rather imbalanced yéyé or light and twangy solo 60s.
micro = neck its pretty dull and centered in the bass. not very usable indeed. Everything is quite low, it will push the amp.

Mixture? ALL position, we have a sound that actually adds the two, not like a Start or LP, I have a bigger sound with the treble and bass one another. The connection must be set. It's pretty quiet and frankly stunning. So the sound is balanced, deep enough and you can do a lot of beautiful things: jazz (yes, the sound has an interesting sound on his side clear), and especially because in the blues crunch, it sends a well it's cute and formidable. In blind testing, I defy anyone to guess this guitar or at least the genre. Like what, with plated and cons of micro weaklings, we can do something crazy!

The flight and tone knobs are progressive and efficient, what more?

OVERALL OPINION

To be used exclusively in a ballochi retro costume glitter on the good old blues to daddy or surf music, guaranteed. It changes the sounds you know by heart, those take us very naturally in retro styles.
This guitar is it seems very rare. It is said that only 10% of this time are Welson with 2 microphones, and yet, they have mostly a vibrato tailpiece.
