Spelled with Fenderized F: 7rontier
I realise the brand is awoken again, but has anyone seen an old one?
I've searched the net for years for any info with no luck, even before the new ones flooded the search engine.
I't doesn't seem to come from any of the big factories judging from the builing specs.
Since it has the Gotoh MH804 machine heads a guess in time span would be middle to late seventies.

EDIT: Pictures!

Yes! Just a small one..
There has turned up some 335 type guitars from the same manufacturer on the Interwebz, or at least with the same logo. A ca 1980's take with neckthrough-look but with what looks like a mahogny set neck. (Frontier ES500)

I've also seen an eight string bass with the same logo.

Maybe someone got some stories?

I've seen four in thirteen years. My les paul has no building similaritys with any other manufacturer, so it is probably a very small Gakki if they all were made under the same roof.

Yes. They differ from the Frontier in construction and hardware. At least the ones I've seen.

una marca que me gusta especialmente. Gibson no ha producido mejor que el Paul por un tiempo.
