This is a Silvertone, solid body, Mosrite-style, electric guitar. It was made in Japan by Teisco for Silvertone. The model number on the back is 309.14459. It's completely original including the chipboard case. It's in almost mint condition. The only flaws are some wear in the finish; which is mainly some buckle rash on the back. Otherwise, it's in beautiful condition. The neck is straight and all the electronics work properly. It has mother-of-pearl inlays on the neck, fully functional whammy bar, and some of the most incredible grain in the wood. The neck pickup is full and rich sounding, the middle is full but more twangy, and the bridge is twangy-surf sounding. It includes the original case with the plush, red, shag lining. This guitar will be appreciated by both collectors and players, absolutely!Description from VintageSilvertones.com
