This St George guitar, model EJ-2-T, is almost certainly a re-branded Teisco. It has a number of Teisco-like features inlcuding the highly-sought after and now legendary gold foil pickups, the attributes of which were brought to the world's attention by guitarist Ry Cooder.
For a guitar that is going on for 50 years old it appears to be in amazing condition - it's practically as new, and all the parts are there.
The St George brand was created for the St George music stores which had branches in Hollywood and New York in the 1960s, and this guitar would have been original stock that had been kept by the St George family all these years.
