The twist... that was a popular dance in the early 1960s so the obvious name for a new guitar would have to be... Twister... right? The Peppermint lounge in New York became the place where folk could twist to their own delight. This guitar was also made in New York, USA. The Bigsby tailpiece was added later. I have seen a few of these but it is a rare model. This is worn but not damaged or repaired.
