Teisco EB-200

Since I love guitars I couldn’t avoid seeing the headstock on the bass guitar Celso is playing (to the right). I used to own one, its a short-scale and looks fantastic. I guess that’s why they chose it for the video. But not a guitar to drag around. I wasn’t a fan of the way it responded playing it, but the sound was OK with a lot of boom. I’m talking about the Teisco EB-200. And since we are on about guitars, the one Rob Zabrecky is playing is a real show piece. It looks like a EKO 500 kindofastyle guitar. Definitely an Italian guitar.  Always wanted one. Same guitar is used by Robert O’Sullivan in the first video for the song Watch The Girl Destroy Me. This guitar has also been used live on several occasions by Robert O’Sullivan.  Don’t forget to check out the video for Radio Comets. (The picture of the EB-200 is not the one used in the video.)
