One of the most popular products of the Elvis Presley Enterprises merchandise of the day was this six-string guitar. It is extremely hard to find one in the box, and especially in this remarkable condition. The offered example, in its original pictorial box by Emenee musical toys, has an ivory face and brown marbled body with six strings, and includes the green “Love Me Tender” decal with a heart and hound dog on the lower right side and the Elvis decal on the lower left side. The guitar was offered in both four and six-string versions with a cardboard carrying case, automatic chord player (missing in this example), and songbook. This example contains the small colorful booklet with Emenee’s other available musical toys. The cardboard carrying case, with overall brown alligator skin printed exterior motif, has a plastic carrying handle and full color graphics on the interior lid. This example still contains the interior cardboard stabilizer that held the guitar in place while in the case. Any Elvis fan and budding musician was sure to strike a chord with this fantastic toy guitar. The case measures approximately 12 3/4 by 33 by 4 inches (32.38 x 83.82 x 10.16 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The guitar presents completely intact with both stickers and the “strap,” with few defects. Near Mint condition. The box exterior presents with just a few scuffs and some warping possibly from prior water exposure, while the interior has moderate damage to the image areas, which is normal because the guitar itself often scrapes the inside of the “lid.” Excellent condition.
