  1. Super Spanky Jangle Machine!

    Posted by Arsey51 on 4th Mar 2016

    When I ordered the 59 2P Custom I wasn't sure what I was really getting. I saw the cool shape and funky lines and had a major GAS attack...Total impulse buy.
    When it arrived I studied every detail of it, and I was immediately impressed by the build quality. The finish, fretwork, and the materials were all top-shelf.
    Then I plugged it in.....WOW!!! These pickups totally nail that early 60's jangle and spank that I love so much. From a playing perspective, well....This guitar is FUN to play. I find myself reaching for it more often than not, and it will have an honored place in my collection from now on. I'll definitely come back to Eastwood for another....That Surfcaster is starting to call my name. Sigh....GAS.....
    A big shout-out of thanks to Chadwick at WICK'S Guitar Shop in Fort Worth for an easy sale and for the great setup!

    You know one of my Favorite bands right now is THE BLACK KEYS..why because they have a classic Rock n Roll style that's their own.. like a 50s rockabilly with a modern punch to it..AND THIS GUITAR FITS RIGHT INTO THAT GIG BABY!!!


  4. Radical rocker

    Posted by Matt Dorkings. on 29th Sep 2015

    The sound of this guitar is as unique as it's look, the twang and brightness cut through any mix with ease thanks to the single coil/chambered body combo.

    I was skeptical of playing a guitar like this for heavy music as i imagined terrible feedback issues but that has not been the case at all. The guitar is so responsive and cleans up beautifully, it chimes when you treat her gently!

    I play in a twin guitar band and having such a unique guitar has made our sound so much wider, and has definitely turned heads when on stage.

    If this guitar was stolen and I was not able to track the thief down to get my axe back and then murder them, I would definitely have to buy another.

    Thanks Eastwood/Airline for making me a very happy chap indeed.


  5. very fast shipping

    Posted by Daniel Olsen on 26th Aug 2014

    I was a bit unsure if I should buy an eastwood guitar. But once mine arrived I was instantly impressed.
    Shipping was surprisingly fast.
    I can see myself getting quite a collection, cheers.
