Looks interesting to me. I'm happy to see any new guitar on the market in a short scale comparable to a vintage DuoSonic. The Eastwood guitars I have tried in person have ranged from really great to ho-hum. I'm not sure how I feel about ordering one sight unseen but I tend to think a good luthier can make just about anything play well as long as it's not downright defective. For one of Eastwood's sub-$500 instruments I think I would be more willing to take a chance. Their mandolin family instruments are appealing as well.

Goddammit I love guitars with a 4/2 headstock. Looks like a neat 'stang style guitar. Reminds me a bit of the original Schecter Banshee.

Pretty cool take of a Duo-Sonic/ Mustang thingy but seems a little overpriced . Eastwood recently bumped all their prices up to the point ( to me ) they've become unappealing and you can buy an ORIGINAL of one of their takes for not much more money . I've had 2 Eastwood Hi-Flyers and didn't think they were worth what they were sellign them for and that was before they marked up everything ... Right now I can buy an original Univox for the price of their copy . Just doesn't make sense .

so this is a normal guitar but 23"? i'd have thought the people who had the tenor guitar and wanted a six string version would just buy a mustang.

Definitely looks interesting and the Eastwood's I've played have been decent enough in build quality. Unfortunately, most of the character in their guitars are wrapped up in their looks rather than their feel or sound. They all play and sound like Epi Les Pauls, IMO.

As a comic book fan, this thread messed me up. Why would the guy who wrote the Authority have a signature guitar?

You're thinking this Warren Ellis ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_Ellis

So its basically a Mustang with an a no trem ugly bridge & headstock. Looks like it could be part of Fenders Blacktop range, don't see the point.

Well the scale length is a full inch shorter than a Mustang's. There aren't many new guitars with scale lengths that short.

Remember those earlier VM Jags with the hardtails and humbuckers that nobody liked? This guitar is like if they'd done a VM 22.5" Mustang/Duo II in that series. It's not very vintagey and departs from any/all classic Fender specs, yet a body shape and a pickguard go a long way.

Except not, because of the ludicrous Eastwood price. Oh well.

Shit, they really have gotten expensive. 580 now for the Airline 2P is absurd.
