Teisco Mania on eBay - and other traditional gems not gettin' the love




Strange trend happening on eBay right now. Teisco's are getting snatched up at until recently unheard of prices and some traditional low-end collectible (and very playable) guitars not generating the buzz or dollars they should be able to command.

Here is a list of recent eBay Teisco sales - all in the last 30 days

Teisco VN-4 baritone - $381 on Nov 13
Kawai-St. George 4 pickup electric - $586 (+ $68 shipping) on Nov 6.
Teisco Crescendo teardrop vox copy - $660 on Oct. 27
Teisco Kent SS-4L - $749 on Oct 26
Teisco T-60 repair project - $566 on Oct 23
Teisco SS-4L (non-gold foil model) - $611 on Oct 22
Teisco SS-4L Gold foil - $708 on Oct 21

I am not trying to fuel any kind of Teisco buying spree but i do want to alert my readers that as an apparent result of this new MIJ focus some nice USA guitars from the 1960's are going for cheap prices like the Silvertone 1457 that sold with it's amp in case yesterday for only $411 + $30 shipping. That was a nice guitar for a very low price. Harmony and Kay lovers should keep a close watch on the bay. - JC

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL READERS

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.
