The Tokyo Electric Instrument and Sound Company. Teisco, Founded by Hawaiian guitarist Atswo Kaneko and electronic engineer Doryu Matsuda in 1946, built guitars under several brand names including Teisco, Silvertone and Kent to name a few.
They were too distributed out of Chicago and supplied to Sears & Roebuck. The Teisco factory built many of the Japanese copies in the 60′s and 70′s.
This dude is a total unknown no namer – have seen it once before – but it more than likely came out of the the Teisco factory. Dual single-coil pickups and maybe a whammy. Nice sounding little lightweight guitar, again, a good one for the Girl-ette’s.
Previous owners include Sonny Liston. Hahaha
