The Tetanus Teisco.

Post by frelonvert » Mon Nov 27, 2017 9:03 am

I receive my new toy today: a teisco R-2.
I bought it from dirt cheap on yahoo.jp, and after a 2 month trip in a boat it came in all its glory.
I love it and have a great time restoring it

Yep, that's rust alright! ;D

Strangely, the vibrato unit almost looks like it has a sparkle finish....almost.

Any progress on this restoration? I was curious to see how one would deal with removing that tasty rust...

Yeah, I'm interested too. Try using coke and tinfoil on the rust, it won't remove all of it but it'll make it look better than it was. Works well enough on chrome car bumpers.

Well, ok! some news... I've clean it, played it and I love it!
Still needs refret and I keep the red paint for now. I like it like that.
