Super short-scale 1960s Teisco EB-100 Bass
Serious bass players will have to forgive me for I have a strange fascination with these vintage Japanese ultra short-scale basses (the scale length being a guitar-like 24½"). This is a Teisco EB-100 which has been refurbished with new tuners and a lake placid blue refinish, although it still retains its original Teisco gold foil pickup. To me these instruments would suggest using alternate tunings, be they Stanley Clarke "Tenor bass", or baritone tunings. I think they offer a lot of scope for experimentation.

Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $330.
