Teisco SG lap steel, made in Japan 1960s. This is a cute little vintage piece, it's a lot of fun. Teisco were a massive deal in Japan in the 60s, with a super wide catalog including a bunch of lap steel or Hawaiian guitars. The sound is chirpy and bright, with a bit of standard single coil hum but nothing too nasty.  In a fun twist, this has the original box. Heaps of fun!
