Teisco: Del Rey ET-220

Sound — 10
This guitar is best with either a totally clean sound, or one with a touch of warm overdrive. It feedbacks when excessive distortion is applied. I'm using it with an old Fender amp right now, don't know the make. Very bright sound except when the tone knob is rolled off, then it becomes its own kind of fuzz machine. There's an automatic feedback point at the 7th fret which is very useful.

Overall Impression — 10
I love it, perfect for lo-fi experimental music. It would never get stolen cause I sleep with it.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The action was perfect except for the Low E which had buzzing issues which have since been corrected. The tone knob was also wired in reverse, with 10 being the lowest setting and 0 being the highest. Excepet for that it was perfect.
