RARE redburst (most of them are puke-green) Teisco (most of them were sold with the Kimberly or Apollo logo/brand) SS-4L guitar, also known as the "big horn" or some sorta VERY Burns Bison influenced model. FOUR "gold foil" pickups (also known as the Ry Cooder and/or Hound Dog Taylor pups), just because 4 is better than 3 - take that, Leo! ;)
Guitar has obvious signs of use and abuse (had it for almost a decade now... *sigh*), and some overpainted (in black mostly) parts to cover up wear and scratches - hey it wasn't me!
The pickguard has been kinda repaired (glued, ugly, but now solid) near the input jack, and the 4 volume and 1 tone control knobs have gone missing. but all the pots work (i think the one for pup #3 has been replaced, since it's longer), but the tone pot is a bit scratchy.
AMAZINGLY versatile guitar with oh-so many nice sounds in it. seriously a MUST for any studio owner/musician that wants some really NEW sounds.
It is said that Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins used one of these to make the feedback sounds on the song "mayonaise" off "siamese dream" - thee record that changed my life, BTW...
Goes from warm to twangy with the flick of a switch (or two). AMAZING and WAY underrated.
Yes Teisco made some real cheasy cheap guitars, but this is NOT one of those!
(full description coming up later, stay tuned!)

so, that's about it...
now you want it more than ever. and you will bid on it cuz this is a NO RESERVE auction and YOU decide the price you're gonna pay for it! so BID ON!!!
i ship all my items WORLDWIDE. you pay for the exact shipping only. i pro-pack as always, and ship with MexPost EMS (usually 10-15 days worldwide with tracking number).
i will send this guitar disassembled, with the neck unscrewed. so the package is smaller and it travels safer, too. all you have to do is screw the neck back on, put the strings back on and ROCK IT!
i don't get the new shipping calculator thing. i can't mod it, i think. ignore it!
SHIPPING WILL BE AROUND US$80 ANYWHERE INTO NORTH AMERICA, AND AROUND US$100 INTO EUROPE, around US$130 ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD
but if it's more/less, i'd be happy to send you a copy of the receipt, okay?
THE FINE PRINT (i had to find out the hard way...):
all sales are final. no returns, money back or complaints.
item sold as-is (as described and seen in the pictures), what you see is what you get.
i try to describe the items as good as i can, but please let me know if you need to know or see anything more.
let me know if i can do something else for you, ok? i'm happy to help.
now bid on! tell your friends.
oh and don't listen to your bandmates and partners that tell you not to buy this. they're just jealous, cuz they won't be as cool as you!
rock on folks!
