SILVERTONE/TEISCO WG-2L
1965

Silvertone-Teisco model #WG-2L, solid body, electric guitar with 2 pickups-brown burst This is a 1965, brown-burst, Silvertone, solid body, electric guitar made for Sears by Teisco of Japan. The Teisco model number is WG-2L but I haven't been able to locate the actual Sears catalog model number. It has two pickups with several different combinations of controls to attain quite a few varieties of tones. This guitar is a testament to the significant contributions of the Japanese guitars manufacturers to the low-end market. It has four switches which split the pickups into upper and lower ranges of the strings; much in the same way Burns did it with the Split Sound Jazz Guitar. These switches are a little bit scratchy when changing them but they do work fine. The whammy bar/tremolo works great.

The wood grain on this baby is crazy it's looks digital on the back. I have no idea what kind of wood it actually is but it's really beautiful. The guitar is completely original. It has an adjustable truss rod. The neck is straight and all the electronics work. This another Silvertone guitar that's totally fun to play. It's very clean so a collector will dig it as much a player.
