Vintage electric guitar in very good working condition for its age; this is one of the cleaner examples of this ubiquitous vintage Teisco model we've come across. Small scratches/picking wear on pickguard, pitting/wear in chrome hardware, slight scuffs/scratches in clearcoat on back of guitar, minimal neck wear. 

Guitar is fully functional and plays quite well with minimal relief in the neck. Tremolo is intact and fully functional. Great clean example!

No case, gig bag, nor any accessories included. 

Guitar weighs in at about 6 pounds 2 ounces.

The brand name "Teisco" was established in 1948, and sometimes incorrectly explained as an acronym of Tokyo Electric Instrument and Sound Company. However, the exact name of company establishing and producing the Teisco brand was not that name, and rather, they had frequently renamed their company.

The company was founded in 1946 by renowned Hawaiian and Spanish guitarist Atsuwo Kaneko and electrical engineer Doryu Matsuda. The company was originally called Aoi Onpa Kenkyujo (roughly: Hollyhock Soundwave or Electricity Laboratories). In 1956, the company name was changed to Nippon Onpa Kogyo Co., and changed to Teisco Co. in 1964. In 1967, the company was acquired by Kawai Musical Instruments Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (河合楽器製作所; Kawai Gakki Seisakusho), who discontinued the Teisco brand name for guitars in 1969 (1977 in Japan), but continued to use it for electronic keyboards until the 1980s.
