    Got to give us a little more to go on. Pics, obviously, but instead of your age when you bought it, the year you bought it might help. I can't find any mention of a Teller instrument online other than a classical guitar manufacturer. I'm guessing that it was an instrument that was built for a music store. Stores would order 50 strats or whatever, all built by the same Japanese factory or Korean factory and have their store's name labeled on the headstock, or as a house brand for a department store or catalog. No idea what a Grandpa Pidgeon's is other than they were around from 1954 to 1999. Did they sell used items? If it was missing a fret and strings, then I'm guessing it wasn't new.

    The body, pick gaurd and both bridge and pickup covers are Pbass. But the neck is the Telebass. It's like the Pbass and the Telebass done had a lovechild.

    I've been looking all over the innerweb. But, I haven't found anything yet on her. P.S. it has one single humbucker, and the body is a chunk of wood. There's no relief cuts at all. The more I look around. The more pissed I get at myself. For not taking care of her.

    Nope not at all. When I do get her playing again. She won't be worth as much as she could be.

    Nope, I bought her used for $80 from Grandpa Pigeons in St Louis Missouri. I'll get pictures of her sad self ASAP. But just think of a Pbass and a Telebass having a lovechild.

    You have given me more information about my sad P/Telebass. Than I have found in ten years or more. Thank you for the information. I truly appreciate it.

    Not much just trying to get some information on my P/Telebass.

    If it's a Fender clone/mashup, there's a good chance many "standard" FSO parts will mount right in. No guarantee, though.

    With enough time, skill, and tools, you can do anything you want... cut a Rick into a stick, glue wings on it, and make a Gibson EB-x looking thing. Slap a Hofner neck onto a Longhorn. Whatever your little heart desires.

    As others have repeatedly stated: without pics, this speculation is all urinating against the wind.

    Sounds like a relationship with strong dynamics.
