I think they call those body styles the tulip.
Has anyone seen under the hood on these? Don't know if it's solid, or chambered or what. Tapping, I think there might be a hollow where a bridge pup might go.
Yes they do, though I don't think that's a Teisco term.
I had one and they're mostly just slabs of some kind of laminated wood product...lol
Not a good guitar. My 2 cents. Made of thin plywood. I wouldn't waste any energy on that thang.
You mean as a translation? Couldn't be further away from the truth, "del Rey" would translate to "of the king". Many Japanese guitar makers of the time used Spanish names as brand names and such, most notably Ibanez (or as originally called, Ibañez) - speaking of which, Mexicans speak Spanish, there's no such thing as the "Mexican language"...
Seen one on these in a pawn shop a while back . It was about as ruff as this one . I think they wanted nearly a hundo for it ... Lol
They had several other sticks of firewood too
@Shaytan , just kidding. That king is dead. Few at best, of the old Teisco era guitars (especially in that condition) are worth spending any money or time on. The finished value or resale would not warrant restoring it. A slide guitar may well be the only thing you could do with it for the least investment. Been there, done that.
The Crazy Aces do alright with them. - https://www.reverbnation.com/crazyacesmusic
I gather that part of their day job is re-furbing Teiscos, which they also play in the band.
chucked a sanding drum on my drill press, and after 6 months of sanding through paint and god-knows-what green and grey soft..gooey..........stuff, I hit plywood. It looks sorta like Swedish ply, prolly close to 10 layers in 1 inch. There's pressboard on the top.
Yeah, I guess I'm thinking about putting lipstick on a pig. But, I am taking the CNC classes at Urban Workshop, and I found a PDF of a tulip body, so....maybe a hybrid coming up...
I know how to make lap steels...
Do you have any pix of how it might have looked originally?
It has the pup placement of an E110,
...But it has (hey, it's Teisco, it could be legit..) the neck of an E110N. Note the string retainer on the headstock. It is also zero fret.
Teisco: The guitar that crushed thousands of young aspiring guitarist dreams.
Were they really that bad? Weren't Danelectros about the same?
I would be interested in the gold foils if you can't use them.Let me know.,
Del Rey means OF THE KING. Sorry, I now see this is already mentioned.
It was completely stripped. Only metal is the truss rod.
