I am new to this forum. I just purchased ($100), this Teisco EP-15 guitar, I cannot find a picture of this anywhere on the internet, but I believe it to be dated possibly around 1963?
If anyone else can provide more information, please let me know, it needs a lot of TLC and I'll be working on that over the next few weeks.
Yes please if you would.. I have to replace the tuners, pick up's and probably the pots, wiring etc.. ebay seems a good source, not sure where else to look.
Jim, thanks so much, I just joined this forum today having picked up this guitar last night.
This has more tell tale signs of being a 50's teisco , than a 60's. ie; round replacement logo after spelling "getar" wrong , rounded turner baseplates , round # stamp etc .....
but , i can;'t narrow it down more than that .
50's would be my bet .
I believe you may be correct, I looked at the logo much closer, also the headstock shape and tuners, the EP series was introduced in 1955 it is definitely.. pre - 1960, perhaps 1955 to 59?
that sounds about right . they did still use the round "cow tag " badge in the early 60's, but it had a black backgrounded added .
anyway . if you just posted a picture of the guitar , and didn't ask any questions .. i would have said to myself .. "cool ,, a 55 i think "
i still peg it as a 55 to 57 ish .. but . that is just based on a 50's i have seen , and ,, a gut feeling . ;-) so if that counts for anything there it is ;-)
Nice find. It's been through a rough time and I'm bettig the intonation is off a bit. Haha
Early 60's would be my bet.
