Here are a pair of Airline Barney Kessel models from the 1960’s. It was also known as the Swingmaster, and could be found under the Kay brand and the Old Kraftsmen brand.
Eastwood has released its new Phase 4 Hi-Flyer guitar model. The Phase 4 was the last generation UNIVOX Hi-Flier model that were made from 1968 to 1977. The model was used by Kurt Cobain in their Heart Shaped Box video. The song was released as the first single from the group’s third and final studio album, In Utero, in 1993.
We ship a lot of guitars every month, all over the world. Rarely if ever do we get to meet our customers face to face, but fortunately, some take the time to write. It makes everyone’s day when those letters/emails come back to Eastwood HQ. Here are a few from the past couple of months.
A few years back I bought the Eastwood Breadwinner. Then last year the Eastwood P90 Special. As a product of the 60s and all the psychedelics that go along with “my era”, I decided to take the Breadwinner and have a custom paint design done to it.
Eastwood has produced a limited edition color of their top selling Mandocaster, this one-time run of only 24 pieces in Metallic Blue will ship October 5th. Only $349. Order yours TODAY!
Last year Eastwood released the Airline ’59 Coronado. This September brings two new additions: a Left-Hand version in white and a stunning new Metallic Blue version with white binding. Same price for all, $1199, includes DLX hardshell case and FREE Shipping* until September 30th.
Is there an Eastwood or Airline guitar you’ve always wanted but in a different color? Different hardware? Or perhaps a left-hand model of something that is only available in right-hand? Well now it may be possible to have whatever you want. Read on…
After more than six months on the road, we are ready to release the first small batch of these eye-catching, tone bending, road worthy beasts. The initial run of only 16 guitars are ready to ship now, complete with custom case. Full production will begin in September 2012. Here is the story…
One of our “not-so-best-selling” models is the Breadwinner. We made a replica of this guitar some years back just because it was always one of my favorites, and is stupid comfortable to play. No other guitar on the planet seems so ergonomically correct like this one does. So we keep it in production, because every now and again someone else will stumble upon its design brilliance. In fact, last month I got a letter from a customer – Matt Plummer – that I thought I would share with you.
I started Eastwood Guitars over 10 years ago. Since then we have created dozens of guitar and bass models, focusing primarily on the 50’s and 60’s replica variety. As a guitar player, when called upon to play bass, I’ve always been more comfortable with the short 30″ scale as opposed to the traditional 34″ scale. They just feel right to me, and as most of the designs we tend to replicate from that era, they too were of the short scale variety. Consequently, most of the bass models we have introduced through the Eastwood and Airline brands have been short scale.
