1. Studio 1525 - Located in USA, by now it's the only official dealer importing old guitars from Russia an Europe. They sell stuff mainly on ebay, but you can contact them and ask if they have the item you're looking for.

2. Guitars.ru - the best Russian guitar site. It's not in English, but you can try to reach the forums where people sell and buy numerous Urals, Jolanas etc.

Guitars with switches/studio stuff
I found your site while looking for buyng an analogue tape delay. I'm just curious since I'm also looking for some artifacts to have in my studios in Stockholm... Do you have a cool guitar with lots of switches for sale? Like the Formanta or SoloII??? The double-neck with guitar/bass was cool too ;).
Have a nice weekend,

Tonika bass

Dear Sir,
Can you help me with any suggestion about where I could purchase a Tonika bass guitar. I checked ebay and some russian sites but got stranded for not speaking russian. Thanks.

Anyway, if you're looking to buy a cheesy guitar the first place you have to check must be the ebay.com - try to search for "russian guitar" or "jolana". And, of course, don't forget - there are normal guitars too, and they sound and play even better!
