This guitar is nearly 60 years old! Up for grabs a Decca Tulip made by Teisco. The original company was founded in 1948. It would change hands a few times over the coming decades but made guitars up until the late 70’s. Much like Danelectro guitars you will find Teisco guitars with a variate of brands on their head stocks. They made guitars for several companies including Kent, Pearl, Kay & Silvertone. This Decca branded guitar has all the classic Teisco appointments. Super cool pickguard with awesome on/off switches for the single coils. Real funky body shape and headstock design. A trem system (bar not included).
Specs! This guitar is all original except for the tuners which have been replaced. The nut is made out of plastic and measures 1-3/4″. The neck maybe made of Mahogany and has a depth of .90 at the 1st fret and 1.06 at the 12th fret. The scale length measure 24 and 3/4″. The bound finger board is made of rosewood, has pearloid dot markers and a radius of 9.5″. 21 frets. 2 Single coil pick ups with the original made in Japan pots. Electronics freshly cleaned. The pick guard is made out of aluminum. There was a crack by the neck pocket that has been glued and clamped.
This guitar does not include a case but will be excellently packed. Our tech just set up this guitar and it is playing fantastically! The pick ups sound really great. These 60s MIJ guitars are always fun to have around. This funky little guitar just oozes mojo and fun vibes!
