Hey Paul,

Thanks for writing! Can you send me a photograph of the guitar? This would help me identify the model, etc. It is very hard to find out anything about the off-off brands. Sears used to sell Teisco guitars which have become very popular with collectors over the last few years. Let me know about the picture and I'll get you some information. Write back...Johnny
