Maccaferri Guitars at the National Music Museum

Here's some interesting info from the National Music Museum at The University of South Dakota* about Mario Maccaferri's instruments. I knew about the plastic violin, but didn't realize that he tried to parlay the success of the Islander into archtop guitars. Link

*Not to be confused with The University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople.
