Aelita cam-25

The first Soviet-made electric guitar was the Tonika shown here.

Manufactured in multiple locations from the late ’60s till the early ’80s, it featured Guyatone-inspired fretboard inlays and pickups, and a multi-pin DIN output jack.

S., although—like almost all Soviet-era guitars—it does use a Fender-style scale of 25.5", so who knows?

The most obvious outside influence is evident in Tonika pickups and neck markers, which are very similar to Japanese Guyatones from the early 1960s.

The tuners, however, are of acceptable quality, and the inscribed sparkle pickguard is pretty awesome.
