1960’s Vintage Guitars

It is hard to imagine today, but in the early 1960’s having an electric guitar in your home was rare. In fact, it was likely that your parents were steering you in the direction of accordion lessons. Yikes! The Beatles – and of course others – stopped all that. Suddenly, electric guitars were #1 on every kids Christmas list. Companies that had been manufacturing Accordions for 20 years, retooled for electric guitars. EKO was at the forefront, and within 2 years they were shipping over 10,000 electric guitars to USA per year. For most North American kids, including myself, their first guitar was an EKO or some Japanese import. Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Rickenbacker… these were all too expensive for our parents to buy for us. Hence, the foreign guitar manufacturers gave us what we wanted. Tip of the iceberg!

Here I’ve highlights a few of my 60’s guitars, but it only scratches the surface. If you would like to add YOUR 60’s guitar story, please email me.

Below: A nifty 1959 Fender Musicmaker. I took it to the local luthier and asked him to refinish it, to remove the awful sticker. He said, “What?! That’s a Vintage Sticker!” It took me a while, but now I see his point of view. A couple of Fender Duo-Sonics. I guess I need a Mustang. Got one? The Airline Guitars were sold through Montgomery Ward.

Below: Perhaps my favorite 1960’s guitars, the Domino’s. I have owned many Domino Californian’s over the years (the VOX Phantom copy). They are fun to fix up and fun to play. Domino made one of the better quality reproduction guitars in the late sixties. The Spartan pickguard was autographed by Edwyn Collins.

Below: If your first electric guitar was in the 1960’s, there is a good chance it was a Teisco. Here are a few from the mid-sixties. The Teisco Del Ray was perhaps the most popular student guitar from the 1960’s. No wonder guitars became so popular in the sixties, would you rather be playing a Teisco Del Ray or an accordion?

Below: One last Teisco, a Mosrite Joe Maphis copy. Then, a couple of Italian masterpieces: The Cobra is one of a dozen or so NOS guitars that I picked up when the Milwaukee connection flushed their last holdings. The Galanti, on the other hand, is quite a rare bird. I’ve seen a few in Europe, but not over here. It is an extremely well made piece. The Victoria. I must say that this is perhaps one of the coolest guitars I have.This is truly a work of art. Art Deco. What a looker. The Regent is from Canada, the name Regent was a Canadian label for GUYATONE.

Below: Far left is a guitar I lust after, but have never owned. I found it in a shop in San Diego but they were asking around $2000 for it. I found the one next to it on EBAY – in a severe state of dsrepair – for $100. I installed a tune-o-matic bridge and a Bigsby. Awesome player! Next to that are a couple of Norma’s and another attempt at copying the Burns pickguard.

Below: One last entry level Norma, then a totally cool EKO Florentine. I picked this up from the LoDuca remnants. It is a semi-hollow that looks like a cross between an SG and a 335. Believe it or not, it plays like a dream!. Next to that is a Hi-Lo (also available from Ibanez). The funniest review I have ever read on Harmony central was about a Hi-Lo guitar. Crazy! A KAY SG and an unknown…

Below: Another of my favorite designs, the EKO 700, in two models, 4V and 3V. Equally nifty is the 500 3V. According to my neighbor, one of the best playing guitars in the entire collection, the single pickup 1967 Red Cobra. Next to that is it’s brother the Cobra Bass.

The Espana is identical to the VOX Lynx. The GL Rangemaster is another outstanding Italian guitar. Lastly is a token Airline Bass with a white Gumby headstock.

Below: More unusual suspects. Another Kawai 4 p/u Bison-like beast. Then, the ever-popular but VERY hard to find 1967 Teisco May Queen. (You can find a nice May Queen re-issue on the 1990+ page). A very rare Norma split p/u Barney Kessel design. The timeless Teisco ET460 Del Ray and a simple Sekova Bison.

Below: As you can see, we got our walls painted the other day, hope you like it! Anyway, on the left is an AWESOME Kawai Bass. This baby looks, feels, plays like no other Bass from its time. REALLY well made, big and heavy (the picture scale looks small but this is bigger than a Fender Precision). Next to that is a nice Silvertone Mosrite with slider controls. Interesting because it as an indiviual slider volume for each pickup, so you can dial in an unlimited variety of tones. A 1965 Hofner Galaxie. An early 1960’s Vivona which was made by EKO, and a wee Hi-Tone. Wee guitar, HUGE head. Great canoe paddle.

Extremely well made guitar. This guitar was also made at the VOX factory, and shares all the same parts and finish ast the 335 style Espana pictured way up above.

Below: A beautiful Ampeg AMUB-1 Fretless Bass. Nice piece. Next, a MINT 60’s Airline Barney Kessel featuring the very cool “Kleenex Box” pickups. Next is NOT a Univox Hi-Flyer, but a RAVEN. This is exactly the same as the Univox, but was imported to Canada under the brand Raven. Then, a 9.5 Silvertone Mosrite and a VERY odd and curious guitar labeled CONTESSA. It is from Italy, and looks, feels, smells, just like the JG Italians. Unbelievealby good player.

    Hello,
    I was really blown away by your website! I Originally came trying to find information about 3 pieces I own. One is what appears to be a Blues Master copy manufactured in Japan by Antoria. Second is a viola shaped Bass guitar, brand Cameo. And lastly is a sunburst finish, Cobra electric guitar. But it’s not EKO like the Cobras I saw here. Think I may have some fun finds in these guitars, have you heard of any of these types I mentioned?

  2. guitslinger says

    Back in the early 70s I had a Pan copy of a Ventures Mosrite ,I traded it in on a ’65 Hagstrom II when in retrospect I should have held on to it and paid cash for the Hagstrom.It was an amazingly well made and excellent playing and sounding guitar but I haven’t seen either one like it since and have even placed ads in various publications to try and find one but haven’t had a reply yet.I certainly would jump at an opportunity to buy one if it were to come up for sale now.Is anyone else familiar with this brand and model or even just the Pan name?

  3. Tracey says

    Hello, I have a Vintage 1960’s Norma Barney Kessel Electric Guitar and was wondering what was the value of this guitar? Thanks!

  4. Jackie Good says

    Hi – great collection pictured here! I have a guitar that I am unable to identify and value. It belonged to my grandfather. He had it as long as I can remember and I was born in 1964. The only identification on it is a small metal plate on the front face of the head that reads “MELODY” (in all caps). Starburst body with a black pick guard and some mother of pearl looking inlays on the fretboard – does that sound like anything you’ve seen before?
    Thanks for any input you might have.

  5. Mark says

    Great page! I came looking for info on Domino Californian basses. Mine is cream colored, with a few little dings and a bit of rust but overall not bad. It has neck/body joint problems, but it’s playable. My web search suggests it was made by Teisco in the 60s when the Vox Phantom IV was popular, and perhaps sold through Sears. I was debating whether to throw it away or fix the neck. Your page convinced me not to throw it away. Can you tell me more about it?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I have a 1963 Futurama Coronado Sunburst In Very Good condition. It was my cousins that passed away in 1967. Been wrapped in a closet for 50 years. I’m trying to figure out what its worth.

  7. Ruth says

    I have a stafford electric guitar it says steal reinforced neck on the front and a plate on the back that say Japan .I can’t seem to find any info on it and was wondering aprox. Value and anything else you can tell me about them

  8. Matt Small says

    Hi recently been going through some of my partners dad’s things after he unfortunately passed away and we found his old guitar that he used to play gigs with in the early 70’s. It looks to me like a Domino Dawson after some research, the bridge and tremelo arm set up are identical as are the scratchplate both the removable one and the fixed one at the point of the lower cutaway.

    The thing is the headstock which is more Gibson-esque wheras all the pics i’ve seen of the dawson dominos have more fender type stocks. Everything else looks identical, does anyone have any ideas for confirming identity?

  9. alexander says

    I have amazing, brand new with case Valco Brilhart s/acoustic electric, made in Chicago approx.60-63, can’t get any info about it, can you help?

  10. patsy says

    I own a vintage Norma Ukulele CU500 still in original box with the original warranty tag and pick. it has never been used and still has the original plastic bag inclosing the instrument within the box. it was a gift to me in the late 1960’s and I never played it. What is the current value of this ukulele? is it worth anything or should I just let my 2 year old grandson play with it?

  11. Jackie says

    Greetings Mike
    Just wanted you to know how elated my boyfriend was when he saw the Mosrite – It was in wonderful shape and you did a good job on making it look like it was not a guitar – – suprise for Christmas. He is really excited to have that one back in the house. Thanks again! Great job! Hope you have a great New Year.

  14. Gargoyle says

    Thanks for a wonderful gallery, I love this time period and styling and have myself fallen in love with many of these.

    Phantom guitars (www.phantomguitars.com) in Oregon makes modern repros of the old Vox / Domino styles, have you had experience playing any of these? Any comments on their sound or playability?

    My own loved ones to share that I’ve picked up:

    Teisco EP-8T, a deep blood-red color, and my favorite player, just perfect in my hands in every way.
    Teisco EP-8T, another one but in yellow/brown sunburst, more condition issues but also quite a good player.
    Teisco ET-311, a strange green/brown pine-needle color, very lightweight and easy to play
    Norma bass, same style as the Teisco FB-2 hollow-body. A strange dijon mustard color, very fun and easy to play

  15. Eddie Wooldridge says

    Have you ever come across a hollow body, f-hole, sunburst, single pick-up, SUPRO six string guitar? I have one. Kept it from childhood. Just wondering if it’s worth anything? Eddie

    I have a vintage 1960s St. George single pickup electric guitar that I was wondering about what it is worth. It is sunburst in color. Any held would be appreciated. Thanks

  18. says

    Hello
    Found you site after being away for a while, your guitar photos are amazing.
    I have been looking for the first electric I ever owned. It was a 1960s SAVOY, single pick up, not to be confused with the Savoy guitar line. It was probably a Telsco made in Japan, and I don’t think they every made but the one style.
    I have found two on the internet, but neither one are up for sale.
    Have you ever heard or seen this guitar.

    Thanks again for the amazing guitar photos gallary

  19. Guy says

    Hello, I have a Vintage 1960’s Domino Dawson Sunburst Electric Guitar. I saw the exact one I have in an old 1967 Domino ad, but I am not sure which year or the value of it. It is in rather excellent vintage condition, minus the missing tremolo arm (bar) and is missing not all but 1/4 of a knob, but knob still works. This one has a distinct wavy triangle shaped pick guard on just the one side kinda a marble brown color. If you could at least let me know the exact year, or where to find out, I would appreciate it. Thank you. Valuing it would be hard without seeing it, but if you could range it. Thank you. Loved your pictures and in-site above. I do believe it is a 1966, my best guess.

    I have (and cherish) a1957 Fender Duo-Sonic, that was “willed” to me by a very dear friend who passed on a few years ago. I’ve been aquainted with this guitat since 1965. The 3/4 scale fits me to a “T”. I’m a short fella, as are my extremities. I refinished the guitar by veneering the top in oak and a sunburst finish was added. I replicated the pickguard in carbon fiber. This guitar had been re-painted five times previously. Never stripped! Just sanded and a new color applied. I had started the refinish project before Charles. passed and he did get to see the oak veneer and he really liked it. I just wish he could have seen the finished guitar. I had it refretted by Tom Dodson. An outstanding job! Shoot, ol Wilson Picket hisself played this guitar back in 66 or67. Now before someone has a hissyfit that i’ve ruined a “vintage” guitar, and diminished it’s value, remember it had already been painted five times before. Even in its original state its value is only about 1,500 at best. Besides l will NEVER sell ol”Snuffy”.

  23. Jon says

    I have an Excetro ES 335 copy. It’s a really nice guitar, I had a setup done on it last year and the guys at the guitar shop loved it. I cannot find any good info on Excetro guitars or any photos of other 335 copies by Excetro… Any suggestions on where I can get some info on this guitar? Thanks!

    Hi, I’ve come across a Hagstrom Galaxy II guitar. I can’t find any info on it. Do you know anything about this model and what it may be worth?

  27. Evan S. says

    Hi there. Fantastic collection. I was wondering if you knew anything about Hagstrom II’s, relative to their serial numbers? I recently acquired one from my dad that I have been coveting since I can remember (actally looks identical to the one you have pictured)… I haven’t been able to find out much about dating them, so far. I do know that it’s from the early 60s. And, from what I’ve been able to find about the serial number, I think its rather old. Is that in your wheelhouse?

  30. Bill Wood says

    Hi. Your Welson guitar is actually a WILSON. Made by Watkins Electric Music sometimes known as WEM in London, England. Wilson was the maiden name of the Watkins brother’s mother. Have a look on the ‘net for a Wilson Sapphire. Lovely instrument.

  31. MarkAlan says

    What a beautiful collection! Thanks for posting the pics…I NEVER get tired of looking at these vintage guitars!

  32. says

    I loved your collection. I thought I was weird for my love of the strange and wonderful 60’s guitars. Currently, I have a 1966 Tokai Hummingbird in Navy Blue, a 1967 Tokai Hummingbird in Cream, a 1968 Yamaha SG V with the Samurai Headstock in…let’s call it Lake Placid Blue for lack of an accurate name, a 1966 Teisco Spectrum V in blue, and one bizzaro from the 80’s, a 1985 Fender Performer in Pearl White. All have been professionally set up, and play as well as any Fender or Gibson (except for me 1965 Firebird). Thanks for sharing.

  33. DH says

    Hello,

    Nice collection!

    I have a Domino Baron in the single pick up version exactly like the one you have pictured here. Any idea where I can find more info on them like what they’re worth?

    It needs a setup but overall a nice sounding playing guitar. The guitar and a ’66 Fender Blackface Champ were purchased for my brother in 1974 for $200. My brother never played so I “inherited” them. Still have the Champ too and doubt I’ll ever part with either for sentimental reasons. I am quite curious about the guitar though. I’ve never seen another like it.

    Would you please let me know how much the Domino Californian is valued at? I have one exactly like the white one, but the plate that goes over the strings at the bottom of the neck has come off and gotten lost through the years. Also that bar thing at the bottom has come off and not sure where it is. (I believe it’s used to make vibrations etc.). What’s the value with those two pieces missing, and the value if I find the missing bar. (sorry I sound like an idiot but I don’t know names for things like this). I’ve had the guitar over 20 years and it’s always sitting in a spare room being ignored.

    Enjoyed looking through. My first electric was a Norma made in probably 1967. Single pickup, about 29.95 USD at the time. Red sunburst, white pickguard, have not been able to find out what the model is or find photos. I have a photo of me holding it, I can send it to you if you like
