I recently inherited this Audition electro-acoustic guitar from my father-in-law. I knew it was a much loved instrument, not expensive but attractive to look at. What I wasn’t prepared for was the reaction when I brought it into my shop to get the electrics tweaked. There it was, just hanging by several other (much more expensive) instruments, in need of a good polish and some new strings. Everyone I saw that week wanted to look at it, touch it, comment on it and in many instances, buy it. I was offered everything from £50 to £750 for my cheap, tired guitar and heard some fabulous anecdotes from those of you who had one in the 60s and 70s.
I wanted to know more and after a bit of surfing on the net, I discovered they were Japanese and imported into the UK by Woolworths. I can’t decide what model mine is – if you can tell me more I’d love to hear from you. A very similar one sold on eBay recently for £250! If you have one, visit http://www.mark-cole.co.uk/teisco/ to find out more about it.
Here’s one of my favourite youtubers playing a couple of his own Teisco hollowbody guitars….
