I have a 1966 71B model Oscar Teller Classical guitar, that's in virtually 'mint' condition. I completed grades 1-9 with it, and did all my exams with it since I was 5 years old (my parents bought it from my guitar teacher when I was 10 years old - I'm 36 now Doh!). It's a truely wonderful instrument, fantastic tone, quality, and presence. Apparantly, my guitar teacher bought it from a guy in the BBC orchestra, he then used it to teach as his main instrument for 30 years+
Nice to see there's still some around, look after them!!

teller info

all of you wondering about info on your teller guitars should send wolfgang teller an email and simply ask him. i emailed him a brief description of the model/serial numbers and date and a couple pictures and was able to find out my model 50 was finished march 9 1970 and was made of mahogany back and sides with a spruce top. it was made by horst teller (oskar's son). in 1970 it cost $234 american. it was purchased from a small music store in a tiny village in germany for my adoptive uncles older brother (this i already knew). anyway just google wolfgang teller guitars and you should be able to find his contact info at the bottom of his website. wolfgang is oskar's grandson.

Classical Oscar Teller guitar

Great guitar. Good structure, fine tonal woods, remarkable resonance, and balance. I own quite a few guitars in that category, and I rank it with Hopf classical. Both excellent (mine is a 1966) It's a very reliable guitar that shows substantial improvement in sound and tones as the wood ages. I would buy another one if I find it.

Re: Oscar Teller Guitars

I bought an Oscar Teller from my guitar instructor in 1986. It is a mid sixties model... I loved the way it sounded and played. I passed it on to my son who has it now... It is one of the best sounding guitars I have ever played at any price. I saw one on ebay the other day for $1,430

Re: Oscar Teller Guitars

I have an Oskar Teller "Tellson" dated 1963, still in good order and now played by my son. Is this a rare instrument?
It came originally from my wife's side of the family, and she used to learn on it when she was a teenager.

Hi
Are sure your guitar is a 71B? I have a 7/P. The 7 series was
7/A = side and back Maple.
7/M = side and back Mahogony.
7/P = Palisander ( Indian Rosewood).

Classical Oscar Teller guitars

I have a 1966 Oscar Teller (I can't read model number), a 1971 O.T. Nr. 740, and a 1971 O.T Nr. 61P. They all have great sound, with clear and well balanced tones. I've played many classical guitars, high end ones and others. No matter what, these guitars surpass most others in excellence. I find it very difficult putting a dollar value on them. I don't know if other people share this experience as well. Please tell me what you think.

Re: Oscar Teller Guitars

I have a '71 Oscar Teller Model 61H that we picked up at a vintage music store near North Texas State University (a big music school in the USA) 10 years ago.

Year by year, the more I play it, the more I am impressed by the clarity and richness of it's tone.

I have no idea what it is worth...nobody here seems to know the worth - but has the same questions I do about the value of Oscar Teller classical guitars.

Does anybody know how to go about getting it appraised?

Re: Oscar Teller Guitars

I have two Oscar Teller classical guitars, and 1970 model 45 and a 1964 61P(?) that were given to me. They sound great and play well. George Gruhn (ggruhn@atiba.com) in nashville, tennessee will tell you what your guitar is worth if you send digital photos and pay $25.00. I have used his service twice but not for the Teller guitars; not yet anyways. Does anyone have the history on Oscar Teller Guitars?

Re: Oscar Teller Guitars

: I have an Oscar Teller classical guitar which I bought in Ludwigsburg Germany in 1967. Made in '66' (Model # is fuzzy on label). Wouldn't give it up for anything. Any info on history, values, etc. forwarded would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Oscar Teller Guitars

I am a new beginner in playing guitar, i have been playing drums for 20 years but stopped, and now i want to play guitar, i got an old fender copy (Wester) eletric guitar, i used many hours to fix it up new paint and more, so i made a deal with a guy, he got my Wester and i got his old OSCAR TELLER MODEL 4 1968,
I think i will get a good start on my guitar playing :-) and i will take care of it for shure,
PS: my first projekt is to learn to play "stairway to heven" with my daughter, who playt the flute (11 years)
thats was all, i understand that Oscar teller is a guitar you have to take care of, right... ? :-)

Re: Oscar Teller Guitars

<<Does anyone have the history on Oscar Teller Guitars?>>
I bought an Oscar Teller while living in Austria in 1969. The Oscar Teller had the finest sound of any guitars I had ever heard, and that was why I bought it I knew nothing then about the guitars reputation. I still have the guitar today and it sounds better than ever.

I went back to Austria in 1996 and kept my eyes opened for any music shops that still sold the Oscar Tellers. I found one but it was closed, The guitars displayed were pricey: About $800.00 and up. My cost $79.00 in 1969 but I wouldn't part with it for any price (although it is now mostly played by my son who is a much better guitarist than I am.)

Oscat Teller Model 5

I was stationed in Germany in the city of Wurzburg in 1970. I bought an Oscar Teller Model 5 guitar for DM 250.00
Here in the United States, the name is not well known and prices are depressed for that reason. Since you are in Denmark, it may be easy for you to contact Duesser's Musikhaus in Wurzburg. They know much more about the value of these very fine guitars.

Re: Oscar Teller Guitars

Just take a look at http://www.teller-gitarren.de.
Wolfgang Teller can tell you the worth of your Guitars and it´s for free.
