    I wonder if anyone knows what make or model of bass guitar this is?

    Thanks for any help at all.

    Notice the assymetrical headstock!

    The fret markers and tuners are definately Teisco. I'm not sure of the model but check out some 60's teisco catalogs on the web and you'll probably find what you're looking for.

    Yes, it's a mid-60s Teisco EB-18, also sometimes branded Kent. The headstock looks to have been reshaped and converted to 2+2.

    That's a monster rig to be playing with a cheap bass like that.

    I've never seen any Teisco bass with that peghead shape, so I am guessing it's a parts bass, because I don't have a better response.

    I belive the headstock originally looked like this -


    The guy just took off that scroll part of the headstock with a bandsaw.
