1960’s Idol PA-18 Guitar.

This rare closet find is a hollow body electric guitar import made between ‘67 and ‘70 after the Teisco factory in Japan closed and transitioned to using their parts for smaller brands. Light research below:

- https://reverb.com/news/its-not-all-teiscos-look-at-60s-japenese-guitar-makers?utm_source=rev-ios-app&utm_medium=ios-share&utm_campaign=blog

Details:
- The sunburst finish is flawless, with no checking or fades anywhere.
- All parts appear to be original.
- pickups, wiring, and pots work great.
- frets cleaned of rust, rosewood neck conditioned.
- chrome vibrato is smooth.
- neck has a very slight twist and the truss rod is stuck, but after restringing with 10’s it is completely playable.
- comes with vintage (unable to confirm if original) bag case and original pickguard.

Asking $385 OBO. Thanks!
