(Stinnett, Texas, United States)
well I got another picture showing the headstock,
but i don't have other information about the guitar
because someone gave me this guitar and he painted like that. I asked him about information about the guitar, and he doesn't remember because it is an old guitar.
But i hope you can help me!!ANSWER
You really got me going on finding this guitar. I spent my whole morning looking for it!
OK--here is what I could find:
I think it must be some model of a Teisco
guitar. These guitars were sold in the United States as "Teisco Del Rey" beginning in 1964. Teisco guitars were also imported in the U.S. under several brand names including Silvertone, Kent, Kingston, Kimberly, Tulio, Heit Deluxe and World Teisco.
I found two pictures of vintage 1960's Teisco guitars. Look at these:
See how on the first one there are those toggle switches set with visible screws? Different switches than yours, but the same location and style of mounting.
Now look at the second picture--it is DEFINITELY your headstock. The body shape is similar and most notable is the similarity in the way the neck connects to the body. That is something I did not find on ANY other guitar.
My feeling is that your guitar has undergone some customizing during its long life. The pickups, for example, are not original. Then, of course, there is the paint job.
These guitars are becoming quite valuable as collector items. I am not sure, however, how the changes that have been made will effect its value.
In any case it is a very cool guitar!
But this almost HAS to be a Teisco guitar. Try doing some further research on them. Here is a link to a page of Teisco catalogs from the 60's. You have to pay $10.00 to access them for a month, but it might be worth it to you.Vintaxe.com
Maybe your local repair shop can help you to locate parts if they are available.
Let me know what you think and if you find out anything further.
