Here we have a mysterious piece from 1960s Japan, a Del Ray branded E-110 electric guitar. What makes this instrument so mysterious is its simple “Del Ray” label, rather than the expected “Teisco Del Ray” brand. Because of the string retention bar, we can be sure it's not an original Teisco, which would seem to implicate that it’s a post Kawai buyout Teisco, but this may not be the case either, though it seems to be the best guess. Whatever the make, this instrument was well loved by its previous owner, who stamped his name on the headstock and left plenty of love marks on the finish. The neck also has some slight back bow, but still plays decently. The single-coil pick-up has a pleasant neutral sound with lots of warmth to it. The “tulip” shape is dripping in ‘60s Japanese style and the sunburst finish still looks great when polished up. Ships in a hard-shell case.
