I'd know that headstock anywhere! It's a Teisco SG. Their model naming was always a bit fuzzy I can't tell you the exact name. Besides the tulip I have never seen two of the same guitar from them. Teisco and Vox shared a lot of models in the 60s/70s and you could buy them at Sears out of the catalogs.

Some guys like the cheap tone they have, some guys think they are POS's. That one seems alright.

Yep that's a Teisco or one of it's subsidiaries, that's for sure. I'll do some digging and see if I can help you. Teisco used to sell guitars under different names depending on the country, so it can be tough to properly identify them.

EDIT: It looks like A Coronet. Not sure on the exact model name, but it's identical to this



Some light research says that Coronet were a Teisco brand, known (at least in Australia) for being a somewhat more budget line of guitars.

By the way, it's also hard to give a price on these things because they are so cheap, but they are collectible. This does seem to be a nicer one. I'd say at least $100. Maybe $150. Start the bidding on ebay at $50 and see where it goes.

A good 60's Tiesco can go for a lot, although usually under $1000 in most cases. I'd say average is generally around $300, possibly higher (almost entirely because of the vintage appeal, not quality)

It depends on the model. People like the funky looking ones and the more pickups the better. The ones with 4 pups are stupid money. This one's a bit tame haha. I would say $150 to $250. The $100 was an "at least" price.

I like those old guitars, a kind of mojo, and that one seems to have a decent trem and bridge. If I was in the market I would likely go fairly high on it, around $250.

Looks like a Hofner 462. The headstock is a little different though. One sold for ~1,000 GBP on eBay last year:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Circa-196...=p2047675.l2557

A little more info, they were made between 1951 and 1970 in both electric and acoustic versions. Also it appears that the headstock style did often differ between models/years so that's not a concern.
