On my paranoid days I could swear these guys are just trying to bankrupt me… latest news out of the Eastwood camp is that the company is now producing a “Deluxe” version of their already incredibly cool Sidejack Baritone.
Based on the standard Sidejack, which in turn was heavily inspired by the classically funky Mosrite guitars of the ’60s, the Sidejack Baritone DLX looks to be yet another low-cost, high value instrument for those who like to keep things on the down low.
Unique features will include a mammoth 28“ scale length (this baby’s built for ”B to B“ tuning,) an old-school Burns tremolo unit, dual vintage EW P-90 pickups, and of course that funky ”Reverse Strat“ design.
Other specs will include a bound solid Basswood body, bound Maple set-neck, Rosewood fretboard with 22 frets, dot inlays, 3-way pickup switching, single volume & tone controls, adjustable roller bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.
The Eastwood Sidejack Baritone DLX is expected to sell for $579.00 US––case extra.
