I just got given an old beat up electric guitar in serious need of rebuilding and I suspect it may be a Teisco but I'm not sure.
Can anyone identify this guitar please?
Also.. the spring is missing from the trem and the top of the bridge. Can anyone suggest where to go for replacements or what I could use instead? I suspect I'll have to make something and it will be a seasick Steve kinda thing, which will be fun !
Interesting stuff !
It doesn't have any markings or numbers on it whatsoever.
Interesting too, that the other one on ebay also has the spring missing from the trem. Must have been a common problem.
Good to see a pic of the bridge though, gives me an idea of what my missing part looked like. Trouble is, I've got so many possible ideas of how to customise it I can't decide just yet. Every time I make a cuppa and nip down the shed for a smoke, I roll ideas around and forage amongst all my bits n bobs to see what I have that I can adapt and that's part of the Fun !!! :0)
Another idea I've had for a while is to build into a guitar a simple reverb effect.
Donner and Mooer make these nice little half sized reverb pedals which I think would be ideal for it.
yeah the spring missing was common .. if the arm got caught on something and was hyper extended , they would just fall out .
sorry for the hazy help on the info , but that's the way it is .. and it gets worse . teisco bought out a few companies , and was bought out itself by kawai , when bought out , they got control of the same models . so .. if they bought out global and you had 2 .. one could be a real global .. and the other a teisco made one . lol . see what i mean .
its weird .. ie; many folks think hound dog taylor played a teisco ss4l ,, but he actually played the earlier kawai model .. but .. teisco made em too .. and then kawai bought out teisco .. and owns both. ... so ??? what is it ? lol i guess either way its a kawai ;-)
Blimey.. like trying to suss out which cow pat came from which cow :0)
yup .. if one didn't make it .. maybe the "utter" one did . :-D
Hey..Just thought of a Teisco joke !
What has a Teisco and a cow pat got in common?
You can slide on both !!
hummm... needs more cow bell ;-)
