Ya know some of those Gold Foils are 'gold' on eBay. Do you have a pic of it?
I had a Japanese-made DECCA guitar, with a pair of Gold Foil pick-ups on a mirrored pick guard.
Despite that, it really wasn't much more than a nice looking wall hanger?
It had a non-adjustable neck and was dang near impossible to play.
Eventually, those Gold Foil pick-ups went on a Stratocaster, ala' Ry Cooder.
I'll Play. My bizarro Cipher. It has kind of a Jaguar thing going down. The body screams Teisco but the pickups look more like skinny Guyatones. Surf's Up!
That's awesome! And so clean too.
Yeah, what he said.
This is not wired like a tele
Does anyone know or care to look at theirs how this goofy wiring goes.
Are the grounds switched?
oh yeah its an et-440
Info on vintage no name
Check it out. Vintage no name, only "made in japan" on neck plate. It was my late Grandma's. I almost have it playable. Anyone venture a guess on maker or year?? The tremolo, bridge and pickup makes me think late-50's to mid-60's.
Mid to late '60s Kawai/Teisco judging by the trem, pickguard color and general shape. It has some similarities to both of mine.
I also think you win the 'Coolest Grandma Ever' award.
i feel like hound dog taylor, whenever i plug'er in!
A Coronet brand made in Japan guitar my dad bought me in 1965 from Ontarios
discount department store in Newport Ky. Still have after all these years.
Good stuff guys!
Can I join?
The first one with the red/black sunburst I have converted to an electric sitar using an Eyb buzz bridge.
The second is a Tulip shape with temporary pick guard made out of a floor tile.
The third one is probably a Jedson with a paintbrush finish but sounds great.
im in, here is a few from my collection
60's Teisco ep-10t
70's Aria 1803t
70's Univox Barney Kessel
Unknown Guitar, if anyone knows anything about this one let me know
I don't know what it is... but I sure wish it was mine.
Maybe you guys can tell me more about this one:
My cheesy old pink paisley *** Strat! Do I qualify?!
The Kent 800-series consisted of 6-strings, 12-strings, and basses. They are believed to have been made by Kawai/Teisco. Most have the name Kent on the headstock, upper body bout, and each of the pickups. Almost all of the six-stringers had a vibrato tailpiece and a bridge with a flip-up mute. That left the player with a small area to actually pluck the strings without hitting the pickup selector switch or flipping the mute lever. Supposedly, the model 820, like below, was available with a genuine Bigsby. I've never seen one or a photo of one that had it.
This Kent 820 is the only one I have seen with a fixed tailpiece and a Tune-o-matic-type bridge. There are no signs that it has been modded to make it that way.
These were true hollowbodies with single-coil pickups and bolt-on necks... like the Epi Casino and Fender Coronado. This 820 can hold its own with them. Scale length is between standard Gibson and standard Fender. Neck might be too thin for some, not for me. (I cut my teeth on a Fender Mustang.) It needs treble-bleed caps. I've had the 834 open. Everything is mounted on fake dead turtle shell which makes it easy to work on the electronics. The 820 will need a little more work to get into. Regardless, it sounds sweet, and without the extra "features", it is a blast to play.
Maybe it's not so cheesy.... Besides, it's got my last name all over it.
Aria Tele/Wilshire ...... This thing rocks.
60s tele-star model associated with Kawai guitars I think
