: I just bought from a thrift store a decca guitar that was imported from japan. I was wondering the history, worth, and any info about it.It does not have a year. Does anyone know about decca guitars

I have a similar guitar to the one you bought. It was my grandmothers and I'm estimating it at over 30 years old. Very folk style. She told me she actually had the original strings from when she bought it! I believed her when i tuned the thing and the day after found that the 4th and 6th had snapped. From what i know, Decca just made guitars around that time, 60's to 70's. Mine says it has a steel reinforced neck and it is really heavy compared to others. its still in really good shape and I actually play it. I'm not planning on selling it but I know its well worth its age. It has a hand chissled Ser. # on the bridge.

Decca acoustic 6 string

I am interested in selling mine. It has the original label inside that states 124. It is missing one string. How or where would I go about finding a buyer. Thanks for any help you can give!

6-string Decca

I have a 6-string (nylon) Decca, with a label inside with DMI 273 stamped. I bought it in the late '60's. Generally a serviceable instrument. Nice to see these comments.

Re: Decca Guitar

I OWN A DECCA ACOUSTIC. THEY ARE FROM THE 1960'S.AS LONG AS IT HAS THE LABLE INSIDE THE GUITAR IT IT WORTH $175.00 IN NEAR MIN COND..THEY WERE MADE BY TEISCO GUITARS AND WERE ONLY IN PRODUCTION FOR 3-4 YEARS.IF NO LABLE IT ONLY WORTH ABOUT $75.00.

In reply to your "Decca Guitar" posting on September 10, 2009, the guitar was owned by Jim Madsen and all the signatures were cast members of the play, "Foxfire" performed in The Sioux City Community Theater", Sioux City, IA. Can't remember the date, but it was in the '90's.

I grabbed a decca out of the garabage one day. Still in tact despite a few minor fixes. I have no knowledge of the history or who it's made by. I know that it is vintage and a hollow body electric. Anyone know anything?

Re: Decca Guitar

My first electric was a Decca, and a friend had one too. Mine was the one pickup style and his had two pickups. This was back in 1972. These were cheap but played very well and I wish I still had mine. There's one on Ebay right now that's just like the one I had, only ten bucks so far. I remember the great sustain and feedback I could get through it playing Hendrix songs!

I have an old Decca guitar from my neighbor. It is around the 60's for sure. I was wondering if it is nylon or steel string? It's smaller than a steel string, but bigger than a nylon string. Mine is imported from Japan as wello. It has a sunburst color.

Re: Decca Guitar

I have a Decca guitar that I have had for about 20 yrs.now.
Can anyone tell me about it's orgin or who was the manufacture of it.

Re: Decca Guitar

is it acoustic or electric, it was made in the mid 60's there were very few models i have one, did have a bass,but sold it..
mine is a two pickup sunburst cutaway electric with a ballbat neck that could hit a home run every time..
