Went to a fantastic show last night at the Majestic Theatre in Detroit.  Florida band called JJ Grey and Mofro.  Holy hell did they kill it!  JJ has two of these guitars, and I've never seen one before.  Would love to know what it is.

JJGrey is on my play list.

"Discovered" him on Pandora, then saw him at the blues festival 2 years ago.

Check out "Too Slim and the Tail Draggers" from Spokane

In reply to Jumper K Balls (Trent) :

four minutes!  Jumper K Balls delivers!  so i googled Teisco Spectrum 5 and found this comparison shot of the Teisco vs the Eastwood repro.  Based on the one-piece pickguard on JJ's axe, I think JJ is playing the Eastwood.

top is Teisco, bottom is Eastwood:

I would bet he's playing an Eastwood. Most Teisco's weren't playable when new, and some not even after having serious work done to them.
