Vintage Teisco Del Rey WG-4L 1960s 2-Tone Sunburst Solid Mahogany Guitar 4 PUP
Here's a vintage axe made in Japan from the mid 1960s, a Teisco Del Rey Model WG-4L 4 pick up solid body electric guitar. This axe features a two tone sunburst finish and a bolt-on steel reinforced neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard and simple, deco styled inlays perfect for your surf or Brit rock aspirations.
The original bridge is still in great shape considering the age of the guitar and we were able to find the correct replacement whammy bar. The guitar has all original electronics, including the four single coil pickups. There is a single volume and single tone control knob with four on/off rocker switches for each pickup along with a rhythm/solo switch. With all of the electronic options on this guitar, there are plenty of creative options for all of you tone wizards out there.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL - NO RETURNS
ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD IN AS-IS CONDITION
All of our instruments sold are in complete, working condition. This instrument was professionally inspected, repaired if necessary & given a pro set-up by one of our favorite luthiers/guitarist/composer/teacher & fantastic all around human being as well as the co-founder of April Mae & The Junebugs, Dave "Catfish" Fecca of Dave Fecca Guitar Repair located in Moorestown, NJ...so this axe is ready to rip!
Instrument is in Very Good+ player grade condition, in our opinion. There are many bruises & assorted dings along the bottom and back sides of the guitar. All things considered, this instrument is in fine shape and has fully working electronics that still sound great. The cosmetic wear has absolutely no impact on the overall sound of this instrument. The only thing replaced was the whammy bar. This guitar was given a professional restoration and full pro set-up to get it into complete working order.
We may change out the internal wiring for the input jack, as we've noticed some nasty sounding interference when this instrument is demo'ed in our bricks & mortar shop. If this is accomplished it will be duly noted in this listing & obviously, that re-wiring will not be original to the guitar. We feel it's better for the instrument to SOUND & FUNCTION 100%, rather than retain originality.
Body is 39 1/8" long x 12 1/2" wide x 1 1/4" deep; neck is 17 1/2" long x 1 3/4" wide at the 1st fret, 2" wide at the 12th fret, & 2 1/8" wide at the 17th fret.
The nut width is 1 3/4".
