Below: If your first electric guitar was in the 1960’s, there is a good chance it was a Teisco. The Teisco Del Ray was perhaps the most popular student guitar from the 1960’s. It was recently re-issued through the Eastwood Custom Shop. Hagstrom made some wonderful guitars with exceptionally fast necks.No wonder guitars became so popular in the sixties, would you rather be playing a Teisco Del Ray or an accordion? The Regent is from Canada, the name Regent was a Canadian label for GUYATONE. Next to it is an inexpensive Prestige Mosrite copy. The greenburst is a Kawai and then a single pickup version of the Domino Baron.Below: One last Teisco, a Mosrite Joe Maphis copy, which was also the inspiration for the Eastwood Sidejack Series. I must say that this is perhaps one of the coolest guitars I have. Below: A few more Guyatones, the second one has a set neck, may be from the late fifties. Another 2015 Eastwood Custom Shop project was the Guyatone LG-50. Below: Another of my favorite designs, the EKO 700, in two models, 4V and 3V. According to my neighbor, one of the best playing guitars in the entire collection, the single pickup 1967 Red Cobra. Below: According to me, one of the best playing guitars in the collection, the Goya Rangemaster. As is the beautiful Red Galanti and the Espana 335. The GL Rangemaster is another outstanding Italian guitar. Then, the ever-popular but VERY hard to find 1967 Teisco May Queen.Then, a couple of Italian masterpieces: The Cobra is one of a dozen or so NOS guitars that I picked up when the Milwaukee connection flushed their last holdings. Below: Far left is a guitar I lust after, but have never owned. Eastwood makes an excellent Phase IV replica that is far better than the original. Next to that is a “Montclair” Burns copy, just like the Hi-Lo pictured earlier. Lastly is a token Airline Bass with a white Gumby headstock. (You can find a nice May Queen re-issue on the 1990 page and another recent Eastwood Custom Shop model here). The timeless Teisco ET460 Del Ray and a simple Sekova Bison.Suddenly, electric guitars were #1 on every kids Christmas list.Companies that had been manufacturing Accordions for 20 years, retooled for electric guitars.I have owned many Domino Californian’s over the years (the VOX Phantom copy). Domino made one of the better quality reproduction guitars in the late sixties.

You can see the inspiration for the Sidejack Series in many of these guitars. Then, a 9.5 Silvertone Mosrite and a VERY odd and curious guitar labeled CONTESSA.

The Airline Guitars were sold through Montgomery Ward.

Below: Perhaps my favorite 1960’s guitars, the Domino’s.
