CALIFORNIAN REBEL is an homage to a variety of incredible vintage Japanese guitars from the 1960's.

If you're looking to buy vintage Japanese guitars, I do occasionally offer them from my personal collection in my online store:

This is the video that was made for “The Man With the Goodnight Gun”, by The Californian. I was still in the band at this point, and I got to showcase my Domino Rebel guitar.

Here is a Teisco “Spectrum 22” guitar. I don’t know much about this model, aside from the fact that it was produced later in the game, around 1967 to possibly around 1971. It has the same type of neck, with parachute markers, as the Teisco Spectrum 5 guitars I am so crazy about. The bridge installed on the Spectrum 22 is different though - it is more like a Teisco “May Queen” type of bridge - which in my opinion is a bit less advanced than the Spectrum 5 models. But I do believe this is a rare model Teisco - as this is the only one I have ever seen for sale, or even heard of in the first place. There is little information available online, so I’m honored to share this here on my blog. If I find out more info or end up owning this exact guitar, I will take more pictures as well as video to document this thing.


If you happen to have any info at all on this guitar, please message me and let me know!

Teisco ET-312 & Teisco Spectrum 5 - Differences

These two guitars tend to get mixed up for obvious reasons. Here they are side by side for kicks. 

THE GUITAR WHISPERER - Two Teisco Spectrum 5 reissue guitars

I am legally changing my name to “The Guitar Whisperer”. I never thought I’d find one of these guitars, and now I have two.
Is this the same situation where some dude gets a really big truck with huge wheels and rims to make up for his small penis? (Only instead of the truck, I have F**KING AWESOME guitars?)
Do that seem like I am admitting I have a small penis?
Is this blog entry making you feel uncomfortable yet?
Summary: I’m nuts.
