Weird 1960s guitar

I purchased this guitar for 100 guilders back in the 1980s.
There are no marks on the guitar, no brand, no sort only &quotJAPAN&quot on the neckplate.
It looks close to the Kawai guitars on this web site, but nonetheless is somewhat distinct. There are two holes on the front of the headstock exactly where a skewed plate was attached, judging different coloring in the lacquer.

If you know what brand or model it is, please let me know!

Hi, I’m an admin for a group called ?? sTrAngENesS FroM tHe SIxtiES ??, and we’d love to have this added to the group!

Does it look like the plate at the top could have been this badge?

It’s pretty likely a Teisco, seeing as it was made in japan.

Teisco was a ‘jobber’ for Sears, and made guitars for silvertone to be sold through Sears catalogues.
