its a type of teisco/kent guitar. they were all made back in the same factory in japan in the 1960's. i have a 4 pup kent and i love it to death, so you cant go wrong!

well this is my first fix up job, or custonizing job, of any kind, i don't even know where to start because it's got all those crazy switches and what not... it also has a pretty bad crack on the side, how exactly do you go about fixing cracks and stuff?

oh i also found out its a teisco 64' VN-4

Just fix any damages or cracks, don't do anything else, it's probably worth a lot already, any minor changes can make it lose lots of value.

If youre planning on doing something major, think about getting the cheapest guitar you can find and practicing on that to make sure you dont screw this beauty up.

But im with invictious, just cleaning it up and doing the minor stuff would be sweet.

Good luck!

just so everyone knows, japanese guitars from the 60's arent worth that much, but they hold some value, and are very cool. my 4 pup kent can go from a high gain guitar to literally sounding like a chinese folk instrument in 1 flip of a switch. all the guitars made in japan at the time are so amazing and everyone bashes them. to tell you the truth, my kent is my favorite guitar out of a gibson, and a few epis.

Yeah I mainly just wanted to clean in up, take it apart and get all the dust and rust off it...

here's a pic of the crack, how do i go about filling and reparing it?

is it just me, or is that pickguard like 1/2 an inch thick?
