1 Pickup Teisco E 110 Electric Guitar - Made In The 1960's
older one pick up Teisco Electric GuitarIn 1970 at age 13 I received my first electric guitar and amplifier. 

I was so excited! 

It was an older one pick up Teisco, model E 110. 

It was blue with a black pick guard.  I took it completely apart to see what an electric guitar looked like on the inside and how it was built, then put it back together.

A few years later I took it apart and sanded the body to bare wood.  Then I put a clear finish on it. 

Many years later it somehow survived a house fire. 

More years passed.   My teenage daughter had a birthday party and I had an idea.  I took it apart once again , and told her and her girl friends to pour nail polish all over the body.  They were happy to oblige.  After it dried, I decided the guitar needed a new pick guard, the original was black plastic and did not match the new colors.  I had an old IBM computer in the garage.  I took it apart, and used the old pick guard as a template on the top of the computer case.   I got out the jig saw and cut out my new metal pick guard, sort of a beige color.  Then I remembered I had an old Les Paul Deluxe (70's) mini humbucker pickup.  I cut a space for it.  Then drilled the holes for volume and tone pots and for two mini toggle switches, on / off.  So each pickup would be on or off, three pickup choices.   I had to make room for the pickup in the body, so I put my chisel to some good use. 

I then took the leftover polish and started pouring it on the metal pick guard, and the head stock. 

I put it all back together and ended up with what you see here.   It was fun working on that guitar and a good learning experience.  I still noodle around on it once in a while.

This Teisco electric guitar is the guitar I used in my first band in the mid '70's.

It hangs on the wall in the studio.  It has some very cool tones, but won't stay in tune.  It never did. 

But I like it.  Brings back a lot of memories every time I look at it, so it is a keeper. Burt's Profile
