Something different?

One day I will have a chambered LP, and the Stork looks like it would fit the bill. It's Deviser so you can't go wrong there. The ES-335 (Exrubato) looks pretty good as well.

There was this Jazz/Blues record company in UK before. Something with "77 guitars"?


77 Records
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

77 Records was a British record label setup in 1957 by Doug Dobell, who used to run the famous Dobell's Jazz Record Shop at 77 Charing Cross Road, London. It specialised in folk, blues and jazz recordings.

Artists that were recorded for the label or whose recordings were taken over from US-American labels included Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Alexis Korner, Lightnin' Hopkins, Scrapper Blackwell, Reverend Gary Davis, Robert Pete Williams, Big Joe Williams, Sunnyland Slim, Joe Turner, Freedom 77, Little Brother Montgomery, Yank Rachell, and Sleepy John Estes.

My guess is that the 77 refers to the year that Deviser started making guitars, they are the parent company of 77, Momose, Stun Rise, Evo, Bacchus and Headway etc

Yea, JV is right.. It even says "since 1977" on the headstock. I have a Seventy Seven Stork Cherry. Its one of the coolest guitar I have because LP tend to be too heavy for my taste..but I love LP's feel and design . The Stock has such a nice weight and it sounds great..plus the craftsmanship is bar none...

Solid Top?

Post by GET THE LED OUT » Sat Jun 16, 2012 6:46 pm

Only a newbie here but love the craftmanship and unique qualities that the Japanese guitars possess. Just wondering if the Seventy Seven Stork FM has a solid flamed maple top, or is it a veneer?

From the latest Deviser catalogue:

"Stork-Standard/H or S
Body:Maple on African Mahogany (Semi-Hollow)"

"Stork-FM/H
Body:Flame Maple on African Mahogany (Semi-Hollow)"


The "H or S" appears to refer to humbuckers or P90 type pickups, the "FM" has to mean flame maple as this description has a picture of a flamey Stork next to it.
So, it's not really definitive from the catalogue (thanks to my ability to read Japanese!) but I can also tell you that the Standard is 157K Yen and the FM is 189K Yen.
Generally the Japanese catalogues say something if it is relevant, so personally I would expect the Stork models to all have solid tops.

You could also email these guys:
http://www.japanvintageguitars.com/Seve ... tork.html?

They know pretty much everything there is to know about Deviser guitars.
I love the look of the Stork model, especially the relic one that I missed out on, and I'm determined that a Stork will be my next guitar buy.

Thanks for your informative reply. I'll get in touch with them and see what they have to say

No worries mate, they're in Melbourne (although out in the sticks) and nice people as well. They have a very good relationship with Deviser and can even do some custom orders.

I also have the Seventy Seven Exrubato Hollow with P-90s, its essentially a Epiphone Casino. I really like it! Especially when playing a Beatles tune! :wink:

Solid Top

Confirmation that the Stork FM is a solid flame top, not a veneer. They are fitted with a Switchcraft toggle and jack, and CTS pots
