Local online classifies this morning... the seller does not know what it is, other than being Japanese. I don't know what it is... but it is so cool! (In a very different, and strange looking way). Wants $150 with the case.

probably related to Teisco in some way -- has lots of the same parts: trem, truss rod adj, pups, zero fret. Voxy: a real Brian Jones-type axe. :wink:

I'd bite!

The body is that of a Teisco EV3T. The neck seems to have been replaced at some point.

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

The body is a copy of the old Vox Phantom guitars, but the neck looks very Telecaster-like

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

I say more "inspired" than a real copy of the Vox, as the body shape is not very accurate. I like the Vox asymmetry more. the neck could well be a Teisco too, as TDR had a habit of playing mix'n'match with parts.

but all that is of no matter, as ya canna beat Teisco for trashy cool!

The old Teisco I have has an identical neck and "Tele-inspired" headstock.

I was given the goofy looking (and sounding) old guitar by a friend that was moving to Australia, since he had to discard everything that wasn't essential. He said an Uncle gave it to him long ago. I intended to ask him more about it when he came to visit a couple of summers ago but got busy just catching up. Then before we got together again, he got smeared by a car while bicycling around his old hometown. Ironic, travels the world and gets killed when he comes home to visit. :cry:

Now the Teisco hangs on my wall as a reminder of an old friend. Miss ya Dan!

Sorry to hijack the thread, just that sometimes old guitars have stories behind them.

Here's another Teisco with an odd body style. Looks like its in good condition for a good price.

Teisco put some pretty nifty aluminum pickguards on many of its guitars. they almost seem to outclass the rest of the guitar. my brother once had a Silvertone-branded red Teisco with an Al pickguard that was striped matte and shiny. the effect was tres cool.
