My Trump ts-10 (hand-written)

I've had my Trump for close to 30 years and it looked old when it was given to me. This is the first place and time I've found anywhere that covers Trump Guitars. Mine is the same size as my Epiphone Hummingbird, It's dark chocolet with Black piping and pick guard, Black Bridge and Saddle. Smells like aged Mohagony , with a Rosewood fret-board. I too would like to find out who created these guitars and how much they are worth in todays market. From what I've been reading, we lucky ones to have been blessed with ownership my have a small God-mine. It holds a tune like no other guitar I've ever heard, it can be sooo sweet then bust out there when nudged. Set mine in a corner, walk off and Cough....it rings like a chime.

My dad has a trump t56 gituar. He's had it forever. 1940. He's trying to find out what it's worth

trump electric guitar

i was given a trump electric les paul copy by a friend who wants me to start playing again and i want to know the true value of this instrument(not a pawn shops opinion) she is in near perfect condition , the headstock 'nut' is brass so i think it was replaced at some point .. or?? my friend said the brass nut gave it a 'neat . unique' sound..?? im told there became a component/electrical issue with her..it is a Les Paul copy, orange to red sunburst finish,original pickgaurd,tuning pegs are 'made in germany',no model number visable...the back has two black access panels ..one behind toggle switch and one behind volume/tone knobs..
it has fair to good string 'action' on frets.even in close to the body or higher on the scale..as close or closer to the frets of any quality axe ive handled... very solid .quality feel to the neck and body...it jus feels to be quality crafted..the fretboard is 'edged' with the same white material as the body edging,(between TOP and SIDES and BOTTOM veneers)its as heavy as any Gibson ive ever picked ..exellent sustain and marvelous harmonics too ..and i havent had them tuned yet.. and the Trump logo is with playing cards ...
please enlighten me with as much info as you can on this instrument .. my email is jeffreyengle9@yahoo.com.. hit me there if you can becausei want her repaired soon and the nut thing has me baffled.. (brass?) i wanna HEAR this girl sing in her own voice ..but i wanna know all i can before a single screw is touched ... thank you very much ..
sincerely jeffrey

Re: Trump Guitars

I bought my first guitar, a Trump hollow body electric at a swap meet in Torrance California in 1970.I paid $30.00 for it. It was not a bad guitar at all.

Re: Trump Guitars

my name is carl handley and i have a trump guitar it is a wg59 and i would like to know if you have any information on them please e-mail back

Re: Trump Guitars

I'm a Japanese. Trump guitars are made in Japan. Perhaps all of them are made by ARIA, and most of them were exported to U.S. They have some brand names. for example BRUNO,CONQUEROR, and so on. Also In Japan, it is difficult to find them.

Re: Trump Guitars

I just started to refinish a very old acoustic classical guitar. I picked it up27 yrs ago.
Maytan music in reno had placed their Brand sticker over the original Trump model T.
sticker. I pulled off the top sticker while refinishing. I'm guessing it is close to 40 yrs old
call if you know any more about these guitars

: My pawpaw gave me my trump guitar and he built this special app for it. it makes the guitar sound hollow but awkward in a good way. but my guitar was hand made in america by a musician in south louisiana. the trump industries accepted it and put it in but only 16 were made. they look horrible but upgrade it and the sounds and looks are 100% better.

Re: Trump Guitars

I purchased my Trump 12 string acoustic back in 1973 at the base PX. It was the sweetest and easiest playing guitar I'd ever had till it as stolen several years later. I've never been able to find another.

trump ts 35 12 string.

I have a Trump ts 35 12 string acoustic. My wife picked it up at a garage sale years ago. I don't know anything about it. It has several adjustable features that are not commonly found on cheap guitars. I assume its quite old and in very good condition. I'm thinking about putting new strings on it to see how it sounds. Is there any info on this model?

Re: Trump Guitars

As i was taking out the trash one night, i opened up the dumpster and there she was......a trump model TS27. Looks like a gibson Dove (same pickguard)replica with a sunburst cherry finish. All i know is the woman upstairs passed on (87yrs)an the son tossed it out. He told me she had it for at least 40yrs. It's alittle faded but plays as well as my yamaha fg460sa and ovation balladeer. Mahogany back and sides not sure of the top.

TS27

I have one also, got it in a garage sale for 10$. cant find a thing on them, Ive had it for 20 years now, hardley out of the case, has a couple of birds on it
do you know what there worth, or whear to find info. on them

Re: Trump Guitars

Sorry, gibson hummingbird not dove.

My friend has a trump guitar that he kept in the back of his trunk unprotected for years. He not being a guitar player assumed it was junk. When I played the guitar he hadn't touch in several months, it was still in tune. It sounds great and isn't made of cheap wood. The model was Ts 101 not hand writen. The tuning knobs were made in Japan but I don't where the guitar is from or what it's worth.

Trump guitar

I know exactly what you're talking about. I have the exact guitar. It's a Trump classical acoustic TS-101. I had a friend of mine who makes guitars professionally look at it and he said that they are a very rare guitar because Trump was actually a mandolin company and only made guitars for about 3 years. Any of these guitars are at least 90 years old and are solid cocobolo wood from either Mexico or Hawaii. I had mine appraised in a (used, in good condition) state with a few chips in the paint and a re-glued neck piece, and it still retailed at $800. Hold on to it if you have it!

Appraisal

I have a Trump TS-21 and it was made July 29, 1979. That makes my guitar a little less than 34 years old. How would I go about getting my Trump appraised as no one around here has even heard of this brand. I like the sound of it, but it is need of, from what I can tell, minor repair. I'd really appreciate some input. Thanks.

Re: Trump Guitars

I just bought a 6-string Trump model handwritten inside TS 10/w. Do not know anything about it either.

UH,,,,I goofed back there. I, too, have an old TRUMP
guitar made in Korea (I think in the 50's). I found one
similar, almost exact, on search but it isn't the same
one. The model # on mine is TN24. I believe the back and sides are mahogany; the bridge is rosewood, and the
sticker identifications are still in tact. I, too, would like to know more (as well as the value).

Trump Electric guitar

Have a starburst semi acoustic Trump guitar that is violin shaped body style. Did you ever find out any more info on Trump guitars?

Re: Trump Guitars

Hello,

I purchased a trump guitar for my husband back in 1979. I bought it at Walmart for either 100.00 or 200.00. I still have it and it's in great shape.

I just about a Trump FG-41 from an antique store in Cartersville, GA this weekend. The model number is hand written and is the only identifying piece of info on it. The sticker on the inside says TRUMP and there's an oval sticker on the head that says TRUMP as well, even though it's off center so that a tiny portion of it wraps to one side...

It's the same size as my Fender DG-7 but it's not quite as deep, maybe a 1/2 inch or an inch skinnier. Makes it easier to sit in your lap.

After getting some new bridge pins and putting on some new strings, it sounds great. No idea where it's from, what it's worth, or any of the history behind it.

So if someone knows where to find something out, we're all ears.

Thanks.
Mike C.

Re: Trump FG-41

In 1978 an Army buddy bought a Trump Guitar that looks and sounds like a Gibson Hummingbird from
the Post Exchange for $100. I bought it from him for $25 and still have it. MY 17 year old is a pretty good picker and singer plays it every day and loves it. Unfortunately I dont know much about the guitar or the company. Good Luck.

Trump TFG-01

My 11 year old daughter needed a nylon string guitar for Mariachi guitar lessons given at her school. I found an orangeburst Trump 3/4 size guitar(perfect size for her). It has 'TFG-01' handwritten inside. The guitar is made in Korea and seems pretty nice. It plays and sounds very good. I got it at a flea market in El Paso, Texas off some guy. I paid 40 dollars for it. It even had the original box. But there is no additional info on it.

Re: Trump Guitars

I was given a trump guitar from my girlfriends mother, she said it belonged to her grandfather. It looks old and the serial number is handwritten. but the aged wood sounds great. it could use some work but I'm afraid to because i don't know anything about these trump guitars, or how much they're worth if anyone finds anything let me know!

Re: Trump Guitars

around 1971 ibought a trump electric at the px in san antonio tx. ft sam houston .it was a sort of telecaster replica w cream colored body, used it for quite a few years,but its long gone now.i think the military px,s are the common thread here for finding more info.thats all i know .

Re: Trump Guitars

: My boyfriend also has a Trump guitar, model is handwritten TS-21 it was his mothers..I would also like info on the maker, years in production and value. Please let me know.
