This beauty is another example of Triage Guitar Shop of West Palm Beach Florida saving a vintage abused or abandoned classic instrument from extinction.

This Teisco Kent Hybrid Semi-hollow guitar was an empty husk in reasonable cosmetic condition with just minor dings and a few fine scratches. Otherwise, it was missing everything.

Its a unique combo of a Kent Americana neck with a Kent 335 body, but somehow it works out better than either model.

The following list details the actions taken to bring this classic back to its Glory Days and to restore and enhance its playability.

Cleaned and touched up body

Checked neck for straightness

Polished frets with 0000 steel wool and leveled as needed

Treated fingerboard to restore moisture

Procured vintage Tremolo and new Vintage style adjustable height bridge

Disassembled, replaced and rewired electronics on vintage control panel.

Installed Custom pickguard

Installed Vintage/Kluson Style 6 inline tuners on headstock

Installed new Black Wilkinson Dogear P90 pickups

Installed Ernie Ball Super Slinky (.009-.042) strings

Adjusted neck angle and bridge height for proper clearance and action

Tested all notes for clarity and buzz and remedied any issues found.

This Classic Combo is ready for any sounds you love to play!
