Eastwood Guitars Launches Four New Models

Yes! Eastwood Guitars––re-creators of some of the world’s funkiest vintage instruments, and easily one of my favorite new guitar manufacturers––has launched four new guitars this week, including three six-strings (the P90 Lefty, 2007 Corona SG, and the Indigo-finished Hummingbird,) and one bass (the Classic 4.)

Eastwood Hummingbird IndigoThe Eastwood Hummingbird is a re-issue of the extremely rare ’67 Tokai Hummingbird, one of the first guitars Tokai ever produced. The decidedly retro-styled instrument features––

  • Mahogany Body
  • Maple Neck (Bolt-on)
  • 25 1/2“ Scale Length
  • Rosewood Fretboard With Dot Inlays
  • Dual Vintage Voiced P-90 Pickups
  • Single Volume & Tone Controls
  • 3-Way Pickup Switching
  • 5-way Adjustable Roller Bridge
  • Vintage Tremolo Unit
  • Gotoh Nickel/Chrome Hardware

The case is apparently extra, and the guitar comes in four colors, including the brand new Indigo finish, Black, Metallic Red, & LH Black. The retail price is just $599.00.

Eastwood P90 Lefty Tv YellowThe Eastwood Lefty P-90 Special TV Yellow looks to be a low-cost recreation of Gibson’s classic ’60s era Les Paul Special Double Cutaway. Now available as a ”lefty,“ the guitar was previously only available in a right-hand version. The P-90 Special features––

  • Solid Basswood Body
  • Maple Neck (Set Construction)
  • 24 3/4” Scale Length
  • Rosewood Fretboard With Dot Inays
  • Dual Vintage EW P-90 Pickups
  • Two Volume & Two Tone Controls
  • 3-Way Pickup Switching
  • Wrap-Around Tail Bridge
  • Vintage Kluson-Style Nickel/Chrome Hardware

As with the Hummingbird (and most low-cost guitars for that matter,) the case is extra, though the guitar itself sells for just $399 US. Comes in TV Yellow, Cherry, & Black Finishes.

2007 Eastwood CoronaEastwood’s 2007 Corona SG is a lite-on-the-pocketbook play on yet another classic Gibson guitar, the SG Standard. According to Eastwood, the Corona sports a well contoured body, comfortable C-shaped neck, and a pair of ALNICO Hot-10 pickups. The guitar also features––

  • Mahogany Body
  • C-Shaped Mahogany Neck (Set Construction)
  • 24 3/4“ Scale Length
  • Rosewood FIngerboard WIth Dot Inlays
  • Dual Alnico Hot-10 Humbucker Pickups
  • Two Volume & Two Tone Knobs
  • 3-Way Pickup Switching
  • Tune-O-Matic Bridge
  • Chrome Stop Tailpiece
  • Grover Style Nickel/Chrome Hardware

You guessed it: case is extra. The 2007 Eastwood Corona SG will set you back $379.00 US. Comes in Red & Black Finishes.

Eastwood Classic 4 BassThe Eastwood Classic 4 Bass borrows its good looks from Gretsch’s Country Classic line of guitars, and while I don’t usually cover basses on this website, well… it seemed silly to leave out this great looking new semi-hollowbody. The Classic 4 Bass features––

  • Laminated Maple Body
  • Maple Neck (Set Construction)
  • 30 1/2” Scale Length
  • Rosewood Fretboard With Dot Inalys
  • Scale Length: 30 1/2“
  • Dual EW-Retro Humbucker Pickups
  • Two Volume & One Tone Cotrol
  • 3-Way Pickup Switching
  • Body, Top, Neck & F-Hole Binding
  • Wood Floating Bridge
  • Trapeze Tailpiece
  • Gotoh Nickel/Chrome Hardware

The Eastwood Classic 4 Bass comes in either Orange or Walnut finishes, and sells for a street price of $449 US.

And just in time for Christmas, too!
