Nice, but, where’s the lefty? NOT in black!
Thanks for the heads up! Another great Eastwood creation! I’m still working towards that Supro though. You bros are going to attract a whole lot of attention at NAMM again this year. Hope to talk with you soon.
Lovely lines and grilled f-holes are a nice touch, but why not a thumbwheel volume control instead of the protruding knob on the top edge of the pick guard? And why does the pick guard have to extend fully beneath the strings? What is it hiding?
Ditto, Ron! You tell ‘em! Seems like all left handed guitar manufacturers like to think like Henry Ford, that is, you can have any color lefty, as long as it’s BLACK! I was told to stay away from black finished guitars, because they choose to paint them black to mask any imperfections in the grain pattern. If you ever choose to later, refinish it in clear coat, you will be unpleasantly surprised! Half my lefty guitar and bass collection is black, because they offered no other color options, take it, or leave it, is their motto!
Eastwoodguitars.com makes plenty of left-hand models, very few are black. Sefoam green, red, metallic blue…
I’m betting the screws at the neck end of the pick guard attach it there and the bridge end ones do likewise. Would have to put those screws in the middle of the soundboard if the pick guard was any shorter….
Okay, you got me with this one. Watch for my order. Thanks for being brave and dedicated enough to tangibly honor Signore Pioli. And I KNOW you’ll never take the plunge and do a Rock&Roll or an Oval, but what about a B.B.? Then again, why not do the Oval? Coolest guitar design ever to come out of the European continent.
