Ime thinkin its from the early 70s but dont know what make it is might know a little more once i take it apart.someone definity butchered the tailpiece.
From all the research I did before deciding on my SG, I actually ran across this style guitar. This is a 70's Teisco SG from Japan. If you search on Reverb, there is actually a hard tail version listed in the mid-west US right now. I included the picture from the Reverb ad above. This pick guard varied as well as the pups used. As you can see this is a hardtail version, but it also came with a trem. Hope that helps!
Looks a lot like a Lyle. 70s Japanese.
Tiesco huh.someone butchered this guitar up good.its got some uneven hack job on the bridge and tailpiece they just screwed them right into the wood all the hardware is junk but the neck is in in great shape no fret ware straight original nut any idea where i can find the original tailpiece and bridge or an i better off with modern parts? Any help would be great.
Since it’s an off brand guitar, finding original parts (of that era) won’t be easy to come by. You can scour Reverb but you’d be better off using newer parts.
Don't restore it. it's not worth it for a guitar that will be worth maybe 80 bucks. Make it playable.
I think restored “whether original or new parts” it must be worth substantially more than $80.
But your right, why make a copy “original”. Make it the best god damn guitar you can
Not all Japanese guitars from that time period are worth the 200-400 that people try to charge on feebay. Make it a player, or a survivor, and enjoy it for what it is.
Can anyone tell me what this Frankenstein is
More trouble than it's worth. Use it as a wall hanger or turn it into a hat stand.
It's a poorly done knock off of an actual Gibson guitar model. Do you have a fireplace or wood stove?
What are we voting for? Wood stove or fireplace maybe? I don't have either so I would have to go with land fill or borrowing a road crews wood chipper.
You paid $39 to much for it.
Its an early 70s Lyle SGcopy..thw pic loaded slow and I knew the moment I saw the time of the "horns"...I bout one of those when I was 15...it had killer aftermarket pups and ghoto tuners..other than that it was a plywood bitch....honestly...what you'd spend to fix it up to working order..you could buy a higher end Epiphone (g-400 or "inspired by 1966)...or if you're lucky..a used Gibson Faded..!
if you do decide to work on it and junk the knobs, I'd be interested in them for my old columbus - depending on postage to the UK that is!
