Tellson 10/S archtop from the sixties

Instrument:
Tellson jazz guitar/archtop, manufactured in the early sixties by Horst Teller, Bubenreuth.

Material:
This is a maple guitar! Body and three layer neck are fully made of maple. Rosewood fingerboard (ownership document following CITES 2 has been applied at regional authority Darmstadt as supreme nature conservation authority). Nice creme white and partly multi layered bindings at body, soundholes and fingerboard. Wonderful headstock face of white marbled and black pearloid. Matching fingerboard, trapeze inlays and pickguard. Massive lyra style tailpiece and nicely engraved, easy going brass tuners. Overall a high quality guitar, as it can be expected by the brand. Not labled, but this has been normal back then at Teller.

Instruments history:
Unknown. When we took over, the guitar was unplayable and wrecked. Tailpiece, bridge and pickguard were missing. And finally, someone glued a wrong Klira label on the top, which at first led us to the wrong way too, as there are some similarities of course…

Restoration works:
After demounting, the instrument has been cleaned completely, body has been cleaned inside by compressed air. The totally black and dirty tuners have been polished and oiled, the fingerboard has been sanded and oiled, frets polished. Original tailpiece, contemporary pickguard and new bridge have been mounted. New strings and setup completed the restoration.

Actual condition:
It was really worthwhile to bring this guitar back to life: She has a wonderful look, together with stunning sound and easy playbility! Guitar is perfectly clean and scentless. All paste applications are perfectly solid, no holes, breaks or cracks in the wood. Some lacquer cracks here and there – one can see and hear that she has been played frequently. Very low string action. Frets and fingerboard are near mint, we assume the frets have been renewed before. An authentic, more than 50 year old  vintage guitar, great player and overwhelming sound. Must have and eye candy for every collection.

Measures:
Overall length 107 cm, body length 52 cm, lower bout width 42 cm, waist width 25 cm, upper bout width 30,5 cm; body depth 8 cm, scale length 64,5 cm (nut to saddle), fingerboard width 4 cm at nut, 5 cm at 12th fret; overall weight 1.905 g, string action at 12th fret 2-3 mm (adjustable!).
