looking at the pickups I think it could be an Egmond
not sure about the model
looks like something in between Manhattan and Super Solid
definitely not a Delicia Futurama as advertised
fair price if it plays and sounds well

could also be a symfonie
I used to have a symfonie with similar pickups
anyway, try it before you buy it
the Egmonds have multiplex bodies, wafer thin, ultralight and sometimes a loose neck,
also, the electronics is cheap, the pickups sound decent but the jack is really flimsy and the wiring can be shoddy
could be a refin as well

ah yes and Egmond also made guitas under the Rosetti label, so could be that
other brands as well
Alpha, Caledonie, Frima, Hi-Spot, Lido, Lion, Miller, Orpheum, Roderich¨Paesold, Vega, Wilson, ...

Egmond produced guitars, within the reach of young guitar players. The popularity of the Egmond guitar exploded. Egmond built electric guitars, acoustic and semi-hollowbody guitars, and amps.
Most guitars were exported, and especially the Rosetti Lucky 7 was a hit, due to the fact it came in all kind of "hip"colors.
With the worldwide competition of very cheap, well built guitars from the asian countries, Egmond guitars hit rough weather, and it all came to an end in 1976.
Martin guitars bought the Egmond factory in Best, Holland and, for a while, produced the Vega and Alpha brands, copies of the Martin best sellers, which ended in 1983.

at this point I'd like to confess that I also started on an Egmond
an attic find, an acoustic Toledo that had 3 strings left and was semi fretless
also, at some point I taped a mic from my tape recorder on the guitar and recorded my first riffs
with recording volume all the way up, the recording sounded like a fuzz guitar on steroids
