famous for its unusual originals as well as copies of 'famous maker'
instruments. In the early 60s, Sears offered a non-catalog line of varied Teisco-made
guitars, and this guitar was part of that elite, odd family.
Most Teiscos sported striped metal pickguards from 1965 on, so we can use this as a general guide to the appearance of these instruments.

The 1437 guitars were very different, lookswise, from one another. One was a wide-bodied four-pickup funky Flat-o-caster, and the other was a sleek four-pickup equipped starship. Both were tagged with a 1437 sticker, but obviously very different guitars. The one feature that made them share a number? As far as I can tell it's the quadruple pickups. The 1436 guitars share the same number, have different shapes and have two pickups.
Based on the Teisco models WG4L and K-4L, the 1437 guitars were everything beautiful and ugly about MIJ axes, all under one model number!
