As the general wisdom goes, some musicians choose to play bass – the traditional, 4-string bass – because it’s easier than playing guitar. “If Sid Vicious could do it, then I can, too!” So… why do some players prefer 6-string basses?

Flying V guitars have never been the most popular of instruments – but have always been one of the most striking on stage. And those who love them, really love them! So it’s no surprise that the new Eastwood Custom Shop projects have excited so many players already! Flying V guitars have always been very niche, and […]
Eastwood’s tribute to the 1960’s Mosrite Bass is finally here.

Consequently, most of the bass models we have introduced through the Eastwood and Airline brands have been short scale.

Now, we have another shipment coming – including a new Black color – 1st week of September. We are taking orders NOW, […]
