1962 Wurlitzer Gemini
Wurlitzer Guitars were made in Neodesha, Kansas from in the sixties and seventies, when the company began to import them from Italy. This guitar's serial number is 410741; under the neck on the body there is a date stamp of 1962. Loaded with twenty-first century features like true stereo, tremolo bridge, bound fretboard, tone switches (jazz or rock) and a pickup blender, the '62 Gemini has futuristic retro-cool to burn. From the collection of Bill Nix and Bill Nix, Jr, Marion, Iowa
