Audition guitars Made in Japan by Teisco 1960s
Who remembers buying one of these Audition guitars in the 1960’s? Woolco started to sell them in their Woolworths stores from 1963. They weren’t the cheapest but they weren’t expensive either.
The electric guitars have gold foil covered pickups and plenty of chrome. The Acoustics were closer to the budget end but still make a good sound.
Considering this pair are about 50 years old, they’re in very good condition. The Audition single pup electric has pitting to all of the chrome but everything is original on it, excluding the lovely new set of strings. The neck is in very good shape, the tuners (with original buttons) all hold tune and the frets / finger board are in good order. The body has a few very tiny chips and a few small scratches but the neck pocket is sound and the switches all work well.
The acoustic has a few more scratches to the back than the front but it plays well and has the original tuners. The only things that’s missing from the acoustic is the bottom strap button.
Importantly, both guitars retain their “Audition” screwed-on names on the headstock.
