Teisco K-3L in Los Angeles area for $220

This Teisco is not in perfect condition but it sounds like the seller knows something about guitars so hopefully the changes help with the playability. These K-3L's are probably one of the most decent guitar models to come out of the Teisco factory. I've seen a few alt-indie-retro bands use them onstage and they definitely hold up to live playing.

mid to late '60s Teisco K3-L

this is a very comfy playing example, great neck! It stays in tune nicely and is currently set-up for 11-52 flatwounds. It's all mahogany (body + neck) and light weight.
No case or trem arm :( it's kinda beat-up and someone used some sort of crappy black house paint to cover up the dings. I actually removed a bunch of it.
Two of the pots were dead and the otehr two were corroded. I put in two new 500k pots and wired it up like a Fender Jaguar... well, more like a Bass VI since there's 3 pickups. I also replaced the gears in each of the 5 original tuners and they actually work now :) I also added a similar replacement for the one missing.

$220 Firm - CASH Only

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
