Teisco E-100 / Melody JB4 in Nashville for $100

This seller is offering a Melody JB4 which is a relabeled Teisco E-100.  These are some of the coolest Teisco's because they are super simple and have great pickups with their own unique sound.  This particular version has the desirable round neck plate meaning that it is basically a set neck guitar with a little plate there to provide extra support.  In the 1960's Japanese guitar makers didn't think anyone would trust a glued in neck so they added the plates to give extra support.  

These are great little slide guitars.  Solid and small bodied.  The tone is not bright like an H44 - it is dark and thick and bassy which sounds surprisingly good for slide.  The necks are also fully bound which is nice.

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.
