Decca Hollow body guitar info/interested?

Posted by Jon on Mon, 08/18/03 - 16:57:41.

Hello, I was recently at a local antique store looking for vintage guitars and found a decca hollow body. It had 2 f holes, spring lever type tremolo, raised type pick guard, 2 knobs, 2 switches and 2 pickups. It was in great condition and I really liked the style of the guitar. They are asking $150 for it and I thought that was a bit high. Does any one have any idea of the value of this guitar? I'm still thinking about buying it but if any one else is interested in it let me know and I could take some pictures and get it shipped to you. Thanks for the help, Jon ( jonw2000@excite.com )

Decca guitars were made by Teisco. With the exception of the Teisco Spectrum 5, Teisco's usually are not big dollar vintage sellers. That said, the hollow bodies do go for more than the Teisco solid body guitars.

HAHA Awesome. Im trying to research Decca's too cuz my grandma got a signed acoustic at an auction for 10 bucks. I dunno if its worth much, but if anyone who knows what they're talking about reads this gimme an email plz.

I have just read all of the replies dumb people have been sending to your guitar. I am sorry people like to joke around like this. That 2 f-hole hollow body decca is only worth 6500.00. I suggest that you go to that antique shoppe and buy it on up. If I only knew where this place was.

Please tell me where this store is, I just sold my last one for 116,000.00 dollars. I cannot believe that this 'antique' store dosn't have any idea on the worth of such a gem. It must be a fake, does it have two f-holes?

Re: Decca Hollow body guitar info/interested?

I'm glad to hear this, I wish I knew where this store was because that guitar is worth well over 200,000.00-300,00.00 dollars. However, it MUST have 'two' f-holes. Happy shopping my guitar playing brethren.

Re: Decca Hollow body guitar info/interested?

Really, I have a 3 pick up, 3 switch, thin hollow body electric decca, pretty decent shape, how much is it really worth?
