1960s Teisco EJ-1

Stole this one off of eBay a few years ago while everyone else was watching the Super Bowl. Apparently he'd been just sitting in a closet for almost 40 years. He was so unwanted that the price and shipping together were less than $40! (I told you I stole it.) It took a little bit of work to get him into shape, but once he was -- man! The action was a little high, and the baseball-bat neck was huge, but the metal pickguard gave a resonance that sounded like a built-in reverb. Much more mellow-sounding than you might expect. Great with delay and flange for some '60s psychedelia. I was quite pleased overall.

Important: The guitars on these pages are NOT for sale. Most have moved on to permanent homes and I no longer own them. The ones I still own, I want to keep. If I have guitars for sale, they will be listed on eBay.
