A guy near me is selling this rather unknown Teisco guitar.
What he knows is: it's made in Japan, it's from the 70's and he's seen the same guitar with an Apollo logo on the headstock.

He's selling for about 180$.
Are these old Teiscos worth it?
I really want one and I'd love to get some single-coil action.

depends on why you want it ..
Teisco guitars were made and sold for chain stores
In the US they were sold at department stores like sears and Kmart

Personally, I wouldn't touch the thing with a ten-foot pole, and save for at minimum, a Squier. If you simply must have the guitar, negotiate him down. Haggling is half the fun of buying a new guitar.

if poor action and potentially microphonic pickups sound go0d to you then get it. although on paper they are collectible $180 is way to much. these were the kind of guitars that folks like me stated off on back in the 70s and it's a wonder that anybody went on to play as they really suck.

Right, maybe I should just get a Squier Tele'

I already have a couple of guitars but for some reason this kind of a beater guitar appeals to me.

if it were $50 at a garage sale then maybe but for $180 you might as well find a better beater. the Ion strat my wife bought me at a garage sale last year is way better than the teisco (she paid $15 and it came with a total crap amp as well.)
