Teisco TG-64 - a classic Japanese solidbody guitar from 1965

guitarz.blogspot.com:
Continuing on the Teisco theme, here is another of their guitars, the Teisco TG-64, which carries several of their best known design features: the striped metal pickgulards, the 4+2 headstock style, the pushbutton pickup selector keys, the offset block fingerboard inlays, and the proto-monkeygrip "handle" in the body. We have actually looked at one of these guitars before on this blog (not to mention the Bass VI version, the TB-64) but it's not often you see them come up for sale on eBay, and this is a particularly clean example and in a much nicer finish than boring old sunburst or even Teisco's rather grim grey-green which always reminds me of the decor in hospitals.



This guitar is currently listed on eBay UK with a very low starting price of just £30 - I hope someone out there snaps it up! Let us know if it's you.

  1. So Steve Vai was NOT the first guy to design a guitar with a handle.

  3. Pretty nice, I like the guitar body on this one. But on closer look, I'm not too happy about how the headstock looks, they could have made it in the shape of a triangle in my opinion.
