String Configuration: 6 String Model:


Dexterity: Right-Handed Body Type: Solid
Country of Manufacture: Japan

This auction is for a rare 1965 brown sunburst Teisco TG-64 solid body electric guitar. This model was manufactured from 1964 to 1965 and was made in Japan and has the famous offset body with a handgrip. The guitar is poor condition and needs a lot of work to bring it back to playing level. Please take note of following details.


It has a lot of playing wear and many scratches, marks, and checking on the front, back, and sides. The back of the neck has two long cracks running along the length of the neck. They seem to be caused by the truss rod some time in the past. The headstock has some chips off and the tuners have some rust, but work fine. Two of the grommets have been replaced and another is broken. Two of the tuners are unoriginal. The neck appears to have a slight bend and the fretboard is very dry and faded. The frets are rusty and two of them have been removed. The fretboard has also become slightly detached from the 9th fret to where the neck joins the guitar. The bridge has some rust due to the old strings that were originally on the guitar. The original Teisco headstock label has been removed. The pickups and controls work, but the output is very small and full of static. There is some rust on the polepieces of the pickups, too. All the electrics appear to be original. There is no trem arm or cover. The serial number is : 115398.


It needs a good clean and a lot of repairs, but I think it is still a very cool guitar which can be restored or used for parts.


It is a heavy guitar and weighs approx. 4.4 kgs and will be well packed in bubble wrap and boxed. 


International buyers are also responsible for any customs duty that must be paid upon delivery. Each country is different, so please be aware and check the rules and regulations in advance before you bid. I'm sorry, but I don't have the time to check what is allowed for every country.


Before you bid, please check with your country's post office if they accept large size boxes. I might have to take the neck off to place it in a smaller sized box, but I prefer not to remove it. Japan Post will not ship to some countries if the country being posted to does not accept a guitar sized box, regardless of the weight of the goods inside. But as the shipping cost is calculated by weight as well as size, it won't affect the price. You can check out Japan Post's website in English for more details. 


Insured international shipping will only be by EMS and comes with a tracking number. I only ship guitars overseas via EMS due to problems associated with shipping time and the condition of the guitar. Shipping overseas is expensive and I am not making a profit off the shipping. This is roughly the real cost of shipping via EMS overseas. If you have questions, please ask before bidding. Check other international sellers out for their prices as well if you think the shipping cost is high. Other sellers hide the cost of shipping in the guitar's inflated asking price. I do not. 


So, please take note of these things and find out first before bidding. 


Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions after viewing all of the photos. Good luck!
