I found this Beltone guitar while looking through my grandfathers basement . Would anybody be able to tell me how old and how much the guitar is worth ? Thanks
It's an old Teisco guitar. Japanese made. Not really worth a lot but they can be pretty cool guitars to Rick around with.
early to mid 60's. they were very cheap guitars when they were new, and they don't tend to fetch too much on the open market. maybe $150?
Don't sell it if you are only getting $150.
Looks like a Teisco.
Cool! It's better than the guitar that I myself found in my grandfather's basement, which was a dumpster-worthy no-name acoustic with the strings about an inch off the fretboard.
Pretty cool, you should clean it up real nice and shiny and post a pic.
Only if you DO clean it up and post some pics - MAKE THEM A LOT SMALLER! Holy Crap!
Vintage guitar prices go up and down like a yo-yo, depending on if someone popular is playing them. Certain names command a price, but most do not. Some of those oldies are really sweet to play, and some have unique sounds that you can't find anywhere else. If you don't find yourself falling in love with it, then sell it for whatever little you can get. But if you like it, you will probably never find someone willing to pay you enough to ease the guilt you will feel for decades to come.
