Bought this guitar yesterday and i'd like to know the manufacturer. Hoping someone can hep me.

It's a fantastic looking thing and was an absolute bargain at £25.

Here are some pics:

As you can see the headstock has two holes where i'm guessing there used to be a plate with the manufacturer name just like on a Stagg.

So if anyone knows i would greatly appreciate it.

I would break into someone's house, stab their cat, stab them, and then set fire to their house, just to touch a guitar like that.

Tie her up and drive her into some woods, pour petrol over her and then ask her if she wants you back.


Anyone in Birmingham, England meet up for a Jam?

It plays ok at the moment. I still need to sort out the action and intonation. Sounds great on my little 10w practice amp, I've yet to try it on anything bigger. Lovely warm tone great for jazz and blues.

It looks alot like the decca Guitars that were once sold at your chain stores. a couple other companies i would look into would be Heit , greco and fiama

have a look inside the F holes once in awhile you can find a sticker inside .
During the late 60`s early 70`s so many Japan guitar manufactures were around

OMg my son takes them so large, i swear he needs a c section to have them removed , or he will get arrested for having to base jump off the toilet when he is done .

Maybe a 1960's Tiesco ES ?


that was my original thought However, tiesco tags were not centered they were at the top of the headstock

It looks like two screw holes at the top in the first picture too.

It is a Teisco Del Rey EP series built by Kawai. It is hard to identify the specific model but it is likely variant of the EP-2 or the EP-8.

If you are taking about the Ibanez copies of Gibson ES models, which were played by Jazz greats like Pat Metheny, Joe Pass and George Benson, then you are out of your mind. I believe those guitars are better than the rest of Ibanez's guitars, and I'm sure those Jazz Gods would agree.

The guitar definitely looks like a Teisco. I have some recollection of a guitar like it when I was in the U.K. However, I have not seen one in the U.S.

I know Teisco, Silvertone, Kay and others were all made by the same company or tied together (somehow). I tried to find a picture EP-8 with that open truss rod adjustment but couldn't. But that is definitely the closest to tezmaster's I saw. Either way it's a cool guitar for little money.

Honestly I have seen so many guitars over the years, but I owned one just like it when I was about 15 years old. Not sure but looks a lot like a Cameo or maybe Harmony or just a flat out Kay model guitar which is your basic Japanese cheap model from the 60's through early 80's.

looks like a cross between an epi dot and a rickenbacker but its the wrong colour.


looks quite vintage, any idea of age? any numbers or anything on any of the hardware that could give clues?
