Thanks for the info !
That’s a beaut!
The pickups are actually small singles under a giant chromed cover. Adjusting those ‘pole pieces’ really has no effect; they’re cosmetic.
Looks like someone decided to remove one of the “No Money” frets
That is in fact a guitar.
I never owned that model, but many of us had a Teisco similar to it when we first started with electric guitars in our youth.
Today they are considered kinda cool, but back in the day anyone who had one wanted a Fender. But it’s fun if you know how to do tech work, like straightening the neck and leveling and crowning the frets. Setting the intonation and getting the electronics working good.
You never know what kind of a player you’ll end up with.
Something really funky no doubt.
Very cool find.
I hope you can get it functioning.
Degas guitars are familiar to me from my youth, they're generally poor quality but funky.
If it is solid wood, not plywood, and the neck is not shot then it could be a fun project.
Slide project! Good luck!
Maybe Ike Turner ?
That should keep you busy in a good way for many hours. Good on ya!
i am intensely curious about the sound of those pups!
I can imagine some kid opening that cardboard case and seeing that guitar when it was brand new....
and the rest, as they say, is history!
Well I got her all cleaned up. Did a fret job. 12th fret up needed dressing down . Action now is quite nice. New strings and tidied up the electronics. Beautiful acoustic like clean sound, to cool 60,s surfer music. Not so good with distortion. I did get Smoke on the Water out of it though...
I bet Smoke on the water sounds great on that.
Cute. But no offense, I was hoping to see a pic of a '59 burst.
I bet your type of guitar was part of this playing of SOTW. Go to 1:50 to get to the music. Get out the Bic Lighters !!!
Love the pickups! I also dig the Chuck Berry signature on the horn!
My first guitar , a no-name , was similar to this , had 2 single coils that looked like a humbucker , the sunburst was very similar . Had a chrome pickguard that was kind of Jazzmaster shaped , on a semi-Strat shaped body . Man it would buzz until you touched it . Headstock was the same and the veg-o-matic switches . Played it about 9 months until I bought a beat '57 esquire , what a difference !
