The Univox Badazz guitar (U1820) and bass(U1820B) were copies of the Guild S-100. It had a bolt on neck w/ Gibson style head, 22-fret rosewood fretboard, two 12-pole humbuckers, similar vibrato as early Guilds, pickups were somewhat microphonish and high output.
Available in cherry red, orange sunburst
and red sunburst (1)
, list price was $199.50 w/ case (bass $220). Stopped production in 1974, 71 models had a rounded fretboard near the pickbuard,
all others were squared.
Bass was also availible in sunburst,
red and natural (1,
A quote from a book I saw: "a decent little guitar with a nice comfortable feel and a pair
of super-hot humbucking pickups".
