After the Beatles made it big in 1964, Decca Records wanted to enter the guitar market. In 1965, CBS bought Fender. Somewhere around 1965, Decca started a division known as Decca Home Entertainment Products, which for several years imported Japanese acoustic and solid-body electric guitars aimed primarily at the beginner market, at young kids who wanted to be like their idols. Decca guitars (and Decca amps) were mail order guitars (you could order one from Sears Roebuck catalog) or you could get them through major discount stores, or find them in local music stores. The early Decca guitars were made by Teisco for Decca Records, from 69 and onwards the Decca guitars were made by Kawai. This Dreadnought is essentially a vintage Japanese guitar from the 1960s, in playable condition.

I have adjusted the truss rod and saddle to an acceptable level but the action is still a little high. It has great tone though and great for cowboy chords or to be set up with a nut extender and played as a slide guitar.  There is little to no wear anywhere on this guitar.
