1960's Teisco Style Quirky Turkey from the Depths of Japan
There's no question that Japanese guitars from the 60's and 70's have seen a huge resurgence in popularity over the last few years. Full of vintage charm and individuality, you either love them or hate them.
This model here wasn't made by one of the big brands like Guyatone or Teisco, and instead comes from a small factory near Nagoya. Aesthetically it seems to be a hybrid telecaster/stratocaser body with a red-black burst finish and a mirror pickguard. Has a nice round baseball-bat neck profile and itty-bitty fretwire. Neck has a little bit of relief and plays nicely, truss rod seems adjustable. Tremolo arm is missing but could be easily replaced.
Features two single coil pickups with rocker switches and a tone toggle. Individual volume knobs and a master tone control. Electronics all work okay, however some of the switches can be touchy at times when switches, not an issue if you're not flicking between settings constantly.
Has brand new strings installed and had a solid once-over service before being listed. All in all this is a really unique old Japanese guitar that will easily provide countless hours of fun!
