This guitar was made in Japan in the mid-1960s by Zen-On, one of the numerous companies that built guitars back then for export to the US. We're not sure which distributor was using the Victoria name back then but the guitar is basically a rebranded Zen-On ZES 60 model. This guitar is in great functional condition but it is a little scruffy cosmetically. The neck is very chunky and although it has no truss rod, it is very straight and playable. The solitary single-coil pickup sound great, with a distinct, Fender-ish tone. Includes a recent vintage gig bag.
