Some of those old Jap guitars were all we could afford back in the day.
Cheap and cheerful but no where near the quality of Mats Westones.

I was in a guitar shop in Bundaberg a week ago, and the bloke there had a Teisco about this vintage on the bench; one that had what looked like gold foil pickups.
He finished up what he was doing with it - he had bought it for himself - and fired it up through a Fender Blues Junior amp and it was a fabulous noise; great for slide with a little overdrive- and this bloke could play!! - and with reverb and echo, just the ducks guts for surf music!
They're not my thing, but I can certainly see why people do like 'em notwithstanding the nostalgia thing as Damian points out!

Right on, that pickup may sound fantastic!† I don't think it's necessarily a valuable piece, not many are hot after these old cheapies.

It has the Black logo ( as on the website) and the truss †cover say thunder 1 a. But no active for sure haha. Maybe it was a bad day in the Mats factory haha.i Will add pictures soon.
