Description & Specs

DEVO had some strange instruments over the years like the La Baye 2x4 we brought back to life last year. To carry the tradition further, were are adding  and Jerry Casale's "Be Stiff" Bass.

These Eastwood guitars are modelled after originals that were customized by Bob1 & Jerry themselves during the time DEVO was working on their “Freedom Of Choice” album in 1979/1980. Neither Bob nor Jerry were professionals at customization and it is interesting to note that these were ‘Frankensteined’ by guys who were - like their music - just inspired to do something different than the norm.

Bob1's "Whip It" guitar was basically a Les Paul with the lower horn cut off and flipped over. It is a 24 3/4" scale guitar, mahogany body with maple top, set maple neck, dual humbuckers, dual volume and tone controls with a stop tail and a dark cherry finish.

Jerry's   Bass will feature a 30 1/2" scale bass with two pickups, 3 way switching and single volume and tone controls. The mahogany body with bolt-on maple neck, body color is orange, with black headstock and neck back.

For both models  we have re-designed the headstock to take on the shape of the famous DEVO Energy Dome, with a black headstock face and topped it off with a DEVO logo!

    We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

    If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

    If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

    Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

    Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

    We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

    We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
