Good to hear.

Comment by Ron Lutz on May 5, 2018 at 8:58pm

Hi Paul;  I took your advice on using the de-oxit spray on the volume pot on my Teisco lap steel and it certainly did the trick.  It eliminated the cut-outs completely.  Thanks

Comment by Ron Lutz on May 4, 2018 at 1:35pm

Hi Pick; Yes, it does.  At first I thought it was a fluke but then realized that was just how the company spelled it.  I will now keep my radar up for more "treasures".

Comment by the anonymous pick on May 3, 2018 at 3:08pm

Nice Ron .  Does it have the misspelled "GUITER" on the  back tag ?   

Comment by Paul Craig on May 3, 2018 at 2:51pm

A little De-Oxit spray into the pot along the shaft will fix that up. Nice find.

Comment by Ron Lutz on May 3, 2018 at 10:34am

I forgot to mention it is a Teisco model S.  There is a video on youtube of James Kerr playing one very similar to this, I wrote to him with photos and he said it was probably c.1959 - 1964.

Comment by Ron Lutz on May 3, 2018 at 10:30am

Just picked this up the other day.  Neither the seller or I knew what the value is, but it's really cool and sounds fantastic although there is a bit of cut out when adjusting volume.

thats a yummy  brent .

\uap>Picked this up at an antique store a few days ago. Needs a little maintenance but was a find. 

Comment by Paul Craig on March 19, 2018 at 8:21pm

Guitarfetish.com has bodies and necks for 6 string guitars and bass. They sometimes have violin shaped bodies for cheap. However, their wood products can be hit or miss when it comes to quality, but someone that knows how to fix them can get a real bargain. I've bought 3 necks from them, 1 required little work, 1 required a small amount of work and the other required a lot of work. So it can be a gamble, but the necks were $25 - $30 a piece plus shipping. Shipping was about the same or a little more.

BTW their pickups are pretty good.
