1959 DALLAS Tuxedo

Pickup by Weill

Dallas Tuxedo

 

 

c.1961 DALLAS Tuxedo 6

Budget two-pickup model with no solo switch, non-contoured body, pointy treble horn, and sculpted heelless neck/body joint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This example refinished in metallic blue

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some such guitars were also sold badged as Fenton-Weills, but never officially appeared in company catalogues.

Here is one such example, finished in red. Located in France, this was perhaps an export-model?

 

 

 

 

 

 

...And a Natural finish version, presumably refinished? Pinholes in the headstock suggest that this once had a Fenton Weill badge?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

c.1962 Dallas Solid 6

Special model no 4440

"Though I personally built many of this model for Fenton Weill in Acton around 62/63 I can't recall a name for it. I believe most went for export which may explain the scarcity of it in the UK. It was for a time the bread and butter model and a good many were made."
