One of the Limeliters is playing an instrument that has a neck but no tuning pegs, the body is sort of triangular. You can catch some glimpses from about 1:10 through 1:50 on this video.

Power and Glory

Headless electric bass, probably a Steinberger. The tuning gears are at the back of the body behind the bridge.

How can it be electric when it's not connected to anything?

I think it's something like a balalaika.

It's plugged in when they perform the song live. The version in the video is lip-synched to a recorded-in-the-studio take.

Yes, its a Steinberger bass although impossible to tell whether it's one of the originals or one of the Pac-rim "Spirit" models. They're surprisingly good instruments - I have one somewhere - and they use strings with balls at both ends. The one in the video appears to have been enhanced with gaffer tape round the body.

Okay. I guess the song seems more down home and sincere if you don't have those ugly wires coming out of the electric instrument.

Ugly wires ???

Well.. suppose we could always go for more expensive wireless radio transmitter connections between instruments and amps...?????

On the other hand.. what do beautiful wires look like.....???? 😕
