Will this be available in a left-hand model?

Brian McClatchiePosted on  10:28 am - Jan 3, 2011

Hey, Mike, that is cool! Any thoughts of making a 6 string guitar model like this one?

DustyPosted on  1:00 pm - Jan 3, 2011

Any plans for a lefty?

JoePosted on  1:01 pm - Jan 3, 2011

I love your short-scale basses. Any chance of something like this in a 30″ scale?

JohnnyPosted on  1:50 pm - Jan 3, 2011

Very attractive, love the darkstar/mudbucker action. But yer doin’ that Fender/Gibson thing: Two colors? No white?

JohnPosted on  4:00 pm - Jan 3, 2011

Mike,
That looks great!
I give a nod towards your choice of a maple neck.
That should really give the ability to get snappier and Fender bright if one likes, while still keeping the ability to get those deep Alembic like tones of the original.
Nothing wrong with the “I’ll be back after lunch” sustain from the long scale either.

Have a great show,

John Chase

I’m not a bass player , But I think this LOOKS cool!

Craig FishPosted on  8:00 pm - Jan 3, 2011

Very cool Bass. I want one.

BUBBA BLUESPosted on  8:48 pm - Jan 3, 2011

Looks Kool! A short scale fretless model would be excellent!

LVogtPosted on  11:47 pm - Jan 3, 2011

It’s pretty cool looking. I like everything but the gold knobs. I’d stick with black with white markings in the same style. The gold plastic just looks out of place.

Nathan DoldePosted on  8:09 am - Jan 4, 2011

Wow, the magnum is awesome possum.
I had an ovation with stereo output and a bridge w/ a mute that resembled a shoe sizer.

sheckyMermanPosted on  10:52 am - Jan 4, 2011

Standing Ovation! duh huh, duh huh, duh huh… very cool companion to the Breadwinner you all came out with recently. OK, so now back to saving double the coin…

MonsterjonesPosted on  11:51 am - Jan 4, 2011

I think every guitar player should own one of these beautiful
basses! I want one!

TonyPosted on  12:14 pm - Jan 4, 2011

I saw a picture the other day of Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth playing one of the original Ovations… cool pic… really cool tribute
Cudos again Mike!

Love the look and the pick up combo should sound interesting too!
What will it retail for?
Wish I could be at NAMM
Hi to Wendell

Rick BitnerPosted on  6:28 pm - Jan 4, 2011

Sorry Mike!
I just spotted the price tag! $579
DUH! on me

Shawn PughPosted on  2:28 am - Jan 6, 2011

Want want want!

Hey Mike, I gots a question for yous!
Why is it I’ve never seen a guitar or bass from Eastwood with a maple fretboard? Maple adds a snap and brightness you don’t get from rosewood, as I’m sure you know. Just a thought that’s been on my mind.

dirk nanningaPosted on  2:46 pm - Jan 7, 2011

Jah Wobble will be quite pleased! Thanks for this model.

MichaelPosted on  9:51 pm - Jan 7, 2011

I gots to get me one!!! Oh, yeah!!!

dave yohePosted on  4:56 pm - Jan 9, 2011

I love it! I have actually been looking for an used ampeg similar to that.
I would prefer natural wood, and a tortise shell pickgaurd, but thats just me.

dave yohePosted on  4:58 pm - Jan 9, 2011

Duh I meant ovation. I have also been looking for a Guild b-302

Andrew BarnumPosted on  11:29 pm - Feb 2, 2011

Awesome. Fretless please!

tim brillPosted on  8:40 pm - Feb 9, 2011

I got the AEB-1 right out of the chute a few years back and have been pleased, hopefully i can land one of these retro-ovations for my collection. Any chance of a Vox (Bill Wyman type)teardrop copy down the road?

Dr. Glen DavisPosted on  4:49 pm - Mar 18, 2011

Looks great!
I WANT ONE, SOON.

Dr. Glen DavisPosted on  10:05 pm - Mar 18, 2011

Dave Yohe,
I have a Guild B-302 A, absolutely pristine condition. I’d trade it for a new Eastwood Magnum. Interested?

CharliePosted on  12:41 am - Jun 28, 2011

Hi Mike:
This bass is beautiful. I already own a Hi-Flyer and I play it all the time. I am patiently waiting for you to bring the Airline Pocket Bass back. I’ll buy one in a heart beat.

stevePosted on  11:00 pm - Dec 5, 2011

im a guitar player but i really want to learn bass, beautiful bass here but i agree with LVogt the gold knobs look a bit out of place with the hardware being all chrome. how does it compare to the EUB bass?

stevePosted on  11:02 pm - Dec 5, 2011

then again knobs are easily changed! DUH!

bjhughesPosted on  10:19 pm - Jan 4, 2012

As a bass guitarist, all I can say is ” S W E E T ” !

Andy NewsomePosted on  12:51 pm - Mar 1, 2012

Hey Dr. Glen, I have this Eastwood Magnum Bass and love it but i’ve always wanted a Guild B-302 A. I’ve already had the magnum for a year and i’d be willing to trade. Mine is still in brand new condition w/ case and all. It’s just like the one in the picture. Let me know

J-P SiitonenPosted on  3:58 pm - Mar 28, 2012

That looks so lame compared to the original.

Anthony SerioPosted on  6:20 pm - Dec 4, 2013

Will you be making this bass available in a 5 string model?

Anthony SerioPosted on  6:21 pm - Dec 4, 2013

Will this bass be avilable in a 5 string model?

Mike RobinsonPosted on  6:53 pm - Dec 4, 2013

no plans for that.

James M MillerPosted on  2:17 pm - Dec 21, 2013

I’ve been waiting for this to come out since it was announced. Did something change?

Mike RobinsonPosted on  9:19 pm - Dec 21, 2013

that bass came and went a few yars ago..

Dan Noel SrPosted on  12:35 pm - Dec 24, 2013

I got a cherryburst prototype from you a couple years ago! is it the only one that you made?

Terry WilsonPosted on  2:00 pm - Jan 6, 2014

This looks very cool! And a nice idea to replicate this. I had a mid ’70’s Ovation Magnum and I’ve always regretted getting rid of it. It was a great playing and sounding bass. This looks great…where’s the string dampener? That was one of the functions on this bass that made it different and it worked great….of course I ended up just leaving it on all the time.

James VaughnPosted on  5:46 pm - Feb 7, 2014

Groovy, I’ll take one! Looking forward to some shots of the natural finish, Seafoam would be extra bitchin’ !
