This is a 1960s Telestar solid body electric by Kawai. This guitar is in fabulous condition, with only slight hazing on the finish and some scuffs on the pick-guard. Also, almost miraculously, this guitar has its original cardboard box and Telestar beginner’s method book. With a scale length slightly less than 24 inches and a small body, this guitar is a great beginner instrument. The sound is rather neutral and the playability is decent. Atypical of Japanese vintage guitars, this instrument has only one pick-up and just one volume knob and tone knob, giving it simplicity which would be perfect for a beginner. This guitar is a wonderful time capsule piece for any lover of Japanese vintage guitars and a must have for collectors. Don’t pass it up!
