Heaven knows what the story behind it is, except that the phony "Fender" decal on the headstock probably didn't fool anyone.

I know it aint fender in fact I clean it all...

I think it is a teisco or something like that but I dont find any exact information

Kingston guitars were built by Teisco. Teisco was taken over by Kawai in 1967, but I don't think they continued to use the Kingston brand-name after that. I'm pretty sure your guitar is pre-Kawai, likely early '60s.
