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

  2. Johnny says

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

  3. John says

    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

    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.

  5. Nathan Dolde says

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

  6. sheckyMerman says

    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…

  7. Tony says

    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

  9. Shawn Pugh says

    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.

  10. dave yohe says

    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.

  11. tim brill says

    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?

  12. Dr. Glen Davis says

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

  13. Charlie says

    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.

  14. says

    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?

  15. Andy Newsome says

    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

  16. Terry Wilson says

    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.

  17. James Vaughn says

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