I'd buy one if they weren't so expensive. I bet the ONLY reason it sells for so much is because of the association with Kurt. Eastwood is sure happy to point that out. Ironic that the Eastwood site says it has a Univox headstock, when it's much closer to a Mosrite headstock (as many of their guitars are), and the original Hi Flyers were Mosrite copies. I can't imagine the Univox headstock shape was copyrighted? In fact I'm not sure why they don't just resurrect the Univox name with these things. But if I wanted a modern Mosrite copy, I'd for sure go with a Hallmark.

They're fucking awesome but like said above... They are too expensive. I rather have a sunburst original Univox with a trem. _________________ Congratulations! Your Punkacc9 evolved into Awstin.
Watched both of the recent Cobain movies, Montage Of Heck and Soaked In Bleach.. remembered about this guitar. Man that fucker is nice.
Worth mentioning that Iron Butterfly uses the same model in tobacco sunburst color on In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. So this guitar has got double allure and it's not exclusively a Cobain poseur guitar.
Anyone own one of these and got some pron to share of it?
