POLYTONE
Instruments previously produced in Japan during the 1980s. Distributed by Polytone Musical Instruments, Inc. in Hollywood, CA.
Tommy Gumina started the Polytone company in 1968 building small, portable amps with the "Polytone" sound. The popular Mini-Brute amp debuted in 1976 and was followed by several other guitar amplifiers. In the early 1980s, Polytone began distributing a line of guitars and basses that were built by an unknown Japanese manufacturer. Polytone offered a semi-hollow line of guitars called the Improv Series as well as a solidbody guitar and bass called the Contempo Series. By the late 1980s, the Polytone line of guitars and basses was phased out, and they continue to produce guitar amplifiers.
