Teisco TG-64 guitar - a bit of a rarity but so unmistakably a Teisco
Ah, here's a vintage Japanese guitar that is unmistakably Teisco, despite being quite a rarely seen model. All the usual Teisco appointments are there: the metal hardware (including pickguard has been unexplainably painted black on this example), the offset block fingerboard inlays, the pushbutton pickup selectors, the chunky tremolo/tailpiece...

This model, the Teisco TG 64 also boasts a 4+2 headstock layout (decades before Music Man thought of adopting it as their signature look on their guitars) and what some might call a "monkey grip" (decades before Ibanez adopted something similar on their JEM series guitars). Actually, I was aware of the Teisco TB-64, the Bass VI version of this guitar, before I knew of this model. I always felt that there should have been a regular guitar version too.

Currently being offered for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $700.

  1. I'd be prone to say the switches are more the rocker type than push button.
