This is going to have to be a short one because there just isn't much to tell. This is a model 110 Teisco Del Rey guitar with a single pickup and an adjustable bridge. You see a lot of these if you frequent the swap meets, but you don't see them in blue. Usually they are sunburst...so this one kind of caught my eye. They don't sell for a lot on eBay, so, unless I find a Teisco like this for $50 or less and in pretty darn good shape, I just keep walking. Have I become too picky? Well, not really....just tighter with my money. It's just not the kind of guitar I'm interested in keeping, so it's got to be something I can resell for enough to make it worthwhile to photograph, list on eBay, package and ship.
In other words, why bother paying $100 if you can only sell it for $125?
Having said all that, it's a pretty cool looking guitar...especially up against my vintage orange Steelcase chair and hand made JFK pillow. The blue color really pops and the black flowery pickguard is interesting enough. Notice how all my comments are about how it looks? Overall the guitar was in excellent condition. It just didn't seem like anything I'd use even for home recording. I'm no Ry Cooder folks and I don't even want to be David Lindley...have you seen him? He always looks like the craziest grandpa ever who could use a shower (and some new pants). I'd love to have him play on some recordings though. Or Ry Cooder. Either one really. I'm an idiot. And I'm running out of stuff to write about. If someone doesn't contribute a story soon we're pretty much dunzo here.
