Rory gave seriousconsideration to guitar oddities and used them as valid musical tools. If they had a sound or a vibe he liked, they got played. Such was the case with this Japanese-made 1965 Teisco TRG-1 with a built-in speaker, which was used on his final studio recordings; a Peter Green tribute album called Rattlesnake Guitar: The Music of Peter Green .
This guitar could be used as a normal guitar, or you could rock out somewhat by using the internal transistorized amplifier powered by dual 9-volt batteries. This setup provided you with a big 1/2 watt into the 3-inch speaker. The Teisco branded versions of these guitars had double cutaways and bore the model numbers TRG-1 and TRE-100.
