Teisco TG-54 Electric Guitar
04 December 2023

Teisco TG-54 electric guitar, Made and Bought in Japan. This guitar was purchased on holiday in Japan in the late 50s. It plugs in and plays, new strings, has beautiful and unique design. The TG-54 was first released in 1954. In 1956, the Teisco parent company changed to Nippon Onpa Kogyo Co LTD, which can be seen on this guitar's head stock. Images highlight signs of wear from early years of play. This guitar was stored in its original case for a few decades. For a 70-year old guitar that plugs and plays, this Teisco is in great shape!
