There are trends that develop in a vintage guitar business.  Sometimes it seems that a certain guitar lures others like it, sometimes bias on the part of the business owner is to blame.  In this case it is simply coincidence that several Teisco guitars showed up here at the same time.

This blue beauty is pretty much the pinnacle of Teisco cheesy-coolness.  Look at it - the four pickups just make it so rad, right?

The guitar came in with everything intact except the trem arm.  I had the one you see in the pics in my parts stash.  It isn't likely original for a Teisco and it isn't original to the guitar, but it is era appropriate and works great.  

The rest of the guitar is fully functional with no big issues.  The electronics were dusty/gritty at first but they cleaned up.  This can have the tendency to return so you may need to clean the pots and switches from time to time, as could be expected for most every vintage guitar.  

The neck is true and frets have plenty of life left.

No case or gig bag is included. The guitar will be carefully wrapped and double boxed for shipping.
