1967 WEM Sapphire
Watkins Electric Music (WEM) was a renown British manufacture and innovator largely know for it's sound systems and guitar amplifiers such as the Watkins Dominator. WEM products were widely accepted in the British rock scene in the sixties, but few have made their way to America. While the Sapphire was a relatively popular guitar in England very few 12 string models were manufactured. Their quality is high, and the Sapphire does resemble the Burns of London instruments, but there is no connection. This beauty is in very good condition. It is completely original except, perhaps, for the bridge saddle. This one plays great and comes with a high quality original hard case. $995.
