What bass is this?

I don't really wanna be that guy, but I'm curious to what bass the bassist (Chris Taylor) is playing in this video.
There's a decent shot of it at around 2 minutes in. Never seen anything like it and I don't recognize the logo at all.

I concur, its definitely a Japanese vintage model, probably a Teisco.

Yup. defo a Teisco. Although he usually plays a Rickenbacker 4001 from the 1970's.

Yeah the Rick has definitely been his main bass for a while (since 2007ish) but he only recently brought out this one so I was curious as to what it was.

Now I'm certainly not a Ric person but why on earth would anyone want to play a Teisco when they have a Ric? You might as well opt to play an Ibanez GAXB or something.

I honestly don't know, I guess he was looking for a different sound or he just likes it. It does look like its been modded quite a bit, since I can't find one that looks exactly like it. Also, I'm not entirely certain that's a Teisco logo on the headstock, so he could have swapped out the neck or something.

The same reason you would play a Danelectro or another lower end bass Sound and tone. Some of those older "cheap" basses have really interesting tones, esp. if you mod them up a bit. I own a longhorn Dano for that reason.
