Jedson Thinline Jazz guitar 1960s Teisco Made in Japan
Jedson Thinline Jazz guitar 1960s Teisco Made in Japan This is a Japanese Jazz guitar, manufactured in the late 1960’s by Teisco for the Jedson brand. Given that it is over 45 years old, it is in remarkable condition. It’s missing the pick guard (the attachment holes are there) and the trem bar (which can easil;y be sourced). The body has very few scratches with just a few feint ones on the front and sides. The back has mild buckle rash. It hasn’t penetrated the paint. The action is great. It’s about 2 to 2.5mm. The multi-laminate neck is pretty straight, as you would expect with this type of construction. The neck and headstock are bound and has a truss rod with body-end adjustment. The Jedson logo is all there. The f-holes are bound (with a tiny amount of binding missing at the top of the right f-hole. The bridge attachment screws are slightly bent but it doesn’t affect play. This Jedson Thinline Jazz guitar still has the original pickups and sounds lovely. It’s bright and plays beautifully and the nut width is just 41mm and the 12th fret width at 50mm. It’s a lovely example of a late 60’s Jazz box.
