*The vendor of this guitar inherited it from his grandfather Tom Poulton. Mr Poulton was a British magazine and medical illustrator, who provided artwork for a range of publications including British Journal of Surgery and The Radio Times.  After his death it was discovered that he had also secretly produced hundreds of sketches and finished drawings of men and women engaged in a wide range of uninhibited sexual activity.  Many of these works were collected and made available to the public by publishing houses specialising in erotic art
