Teisco Del Rey EP-100T Hollowbody

An old high school buddy of mine gave me this guitar about 16 years ago. According to him it had been sitting in his grandmother's attic for 20+ years, and he didn't know what to do with it, so he gave it to me.

I've never seen anything like it. It's brown, like a faux mahogany finish. It has the 4+2 tuning peg configuration, zero fret, multi-notched barrel bridge and Bigsby-style tailpiece, the tremolo bar was missing when I got it, and the threads appear stripped.

I really don't know exactly what I have here, maybe someone can help me figure this out. People I've taken it to guessed it to be a '67 model, but info on a Teisco site places it around '65. I dunno, I just like the guitar and want to get it playable if possible.

Thanks,
Kevin

I have a complete Teisco Del Rey Model EP-100T

Hello Keven,
I have a complete Teisco Del Rey Guitar Model # EP-100T Serial # 397370 and just yesterday took it to Milano Music Store here in Mesa, AZ and they checked it out in every way and everything works including all the switches. It has been kept inside an air conditioned home since the 1960's. I went to the Milano Music Store yesterday and bought a $4000.00 Martin D-35 and took my Teisco EP-100T and they tested it out for free but said they only deal with new instruments so they would not take it on a trade. If you want to talk my cell is 480-258-1822.
Best Regards, Terry.
