    Old is New(er)

    Yup, I own one. I'm NONE of: 1) paid reviewer; 2) vintage snob; 3) professional musician.

    I own quite a few instruments. My criteria have distilled down to two things: value and performance. Most of the vintage, re-issue and anniversary stuff being peddled by the big names fails on both counts. I say this from (painful) personal experience.

    This '59 Coronado is a VERY nice surprise on so many levels. It is beautifully made, plays and sounds just the way I think it should. By "should" I mean 'different'; this it does in spades.

    IF you want a Strat or LP, go buy one of those; this won't be your guitar. My best verbal descriptor for the sound is "swampy" and I mean that in the best way possible. I think it mostly has to do with that chambered (mahogany) body. Obviously the pickups have something to do with it, but they seem like garden variety humbuckers to me.

    I have become a big fan of Bigsby units; this one works great, partly I think because of the 'Zero-fret' setup on the guitar. I don't know why more builders don't put this on their guitars.

    I could go on with accolades, but won't. One word of caution about this guitar: If you love to shred at the very 'top' of the fingerboard, look elsewhere; this guitar is hard to access above the 15th fret.

    The Eastwood crew are great folks and VERY customer service oriented. You won't regret dealing with them.
