Equipboard's gear archive is collaboratively built and maintained by fellow music lovers like yourself. Anyone can submit gear and equipment to artists. Joining Equipboard also allows you to create your own list to track the gear you have and want, and follow artists like Ricky Wilson (B-52's) to never miss gear updates.
You can see Ricky play a ET-290 on this photo taken by Philippe Carly during a concert in Brussels on December 10th, 1980.
The Epiphone Crestwood was mostly used for the xADxGA tuning songs (6060-842, Devil's in My Car, Hero Worship, just to name two), and is easy to pick out because it's one of the more overdriven guitars in Ricky's collection (highest gain). It also appears that Kate Pierson used it on occasion in the early days for 52 Girls (Ricky would use the burst Ventures guitar during those shows).
