Original Teisco Spectrum 5 vs. Eastwood Reissue: Spot The Differences!

The new Eastwood Spectrum 5 Pro is a stunning re-creation of the unique Teisco Spectrum 5. Can you spot the differences?

Teisco Spectrum 5 x Eastwood Spectrum 5 Pro...

The original Teisco Spectrum 5 is a classic, vintage Japanese model that found some celebrity users over the years, such as Ry Cooder and Eddie Van Halen. Our own new version, the Spectrum 5 Pro, is a very close replica of the original, with only slight differences:

We integrated some changes and improvements to the original, including and upgraded tremolo system, making our Eastwood Spectrum 5 Pro a great instrument on its own right. 

We also changed the headstock to 6 in-line tuners because trademarks prevent us from using the 4+2 headstock. But we still have the cool pickguard material on the headstock like the original and put a modern twist to the metal logo badge.

This is a seriously cool guitar, perfect for the guitarist who wants something with a lot more character than your usual "S-style" guitar!
