Has anyone ever heard of a guitar brand by the name of Norma?

Asked by goulddj (23 points ) March 28th, 2008

My grandfather passed on a old electric-acoustic guitar of his. It was given to him by his father who got it by trading a dog, lol. Anyway I’m going to fix it up because it’s really not in very bad condition at all. I took it to my local music store and noone had heard of Norma before. I’ve looked it up on the internet but can’t really find anything about it. So…..anyone know anything about it?

Normas were built in Japan between 1965 to 1970 by the Tombo Company and distributed in the U.S. by StrumĀ“N Drum, Inc. of Chicago, Illinois. The company specialized in copying Italian guitars like EKO and Goya and sold them in the U.S.A as NORMA’s.The Tombo Company is still in business, but these days they specialize in harmonica production.
