Apparently Alvino Rey was a hugely popular entertainer in his day. This film clip is far out. Stringy the Singing Guitar was a regular part of one of the several musical acts Alvino Rey fronted. Stringy combined his interest in radio technology with his electric steel guitar, which he pioneered. At the time of his death in 2004, at the age of 95, Alvino Rey was still a licensed ham radio operator.
