  1. Cool sounds

    Posted by Unknown on 27th May 2014

    Bought one of these in black in '08, while living in Denver. Made a deal with the dealer to swap pick guards so my black Twin Tone had a pick guard with BOTH layers in black with white piping. Killer look!!

    Killer sound, too. I didn't have a big-name or big-power amp (still don't), but the Twin Tone could practically blow out the windows if I wanted to be that loud – plenty of gain in those pickups. I play mostly blues (and not all that well), and the Twin Tone's sound was perfect for that. Almost sounded like Jimmy Reed, except JR played an Airline 2P in red on occasion.

    Eastwood stood behind their product, as well. The first one I got had a misaligned neck, so I sent it back, and Mike didn't just fix the neck, he sent me another black Twin Tone, no questions asked, and in the process replaced the pick guards I'd gone to so much trouble to acquire for the first guitar. Major points from me for that!!

    My nephew now plays it – he's a better player than I am – but it's still going strong, and I just bought another Eastwood model in black because – well, it's an Eastwood, so it's a little different than most of what's out there.
