So, I think the electronics need tuner cleaner in the components and all will be good. Pickups are strong and sound like they should. I replaced the original tuners just lately with what looks to be direct replacements.
I have used the guitar at gigs, and always brings comments and questions. Its a must have for Teisco/ Del Ray collectors. This is a very rare vintage Del Ray reminiscent of the old Vox models of the same lineage and time frame very cool old guitar.The headstock badge is gone to. But as with the tremelo arm, easily found and not very expensive.
