The Teisco is cool Clint, but that Kay amp is cool too. That's a 2-fer.

Good to hear.

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.
