Can anyone tell me what the name of this guitar is.
If you know for sure, please let me know.
I've already checked all the maybe's....
Teisco..kent...harmony
some even have parts which are the same.
like a kent bridge..but I've seen a teisco with a simular
pickguard. And a supro with the same pickups... I've looked through hundreds of guitar pictures hoping to see the same design with no luck.
So, hopeing someone might have had one of this, like when My first guitar was a teisco et200 in 1973 , which wasn't bad once I changed the tuners...lol
\anynone out there use to own this let me know and thanks.

Hey papabear

With that pick guard I'd say it is a mid 1960's Teisco but I don't know what model it is. :cry:

I forgot to mention this has a 12 way switch at the horn of the pickguard if it helps.

Ok, after a little more research I'm changing my mind. I think this guitar was built by Guyatone around 1966.

Guyatone built Kents papabear, that is why you are seeing so many similarities to Kent instruments. I doubt this guitar was ever marketed as a Kent since to my knowledge Kents never had striped pickguards.

thanks, I think you may be right, the lg 140 body shape is very simular.
I'm having a neck made, and will post a picture of it on the body when it gets here. 8)
