The semi-hollow body CLASSIC 4 design takes from the famous 60’s "Country Classic " look and the 30" scale allowed us to develop an instrument with great balance and feel. You will find this BASS will become your everyday player that you can for hours!

I played this bass at our show last weekend and it sounded great a played very comfortably. In the pictures from the shows it looks awesome. It has a real rock & roll vibe and the tone is sweet. I had to install a thumb rest and superglue the E string to the bridge and then it was ready to go.

I bought this guitar almost one year ago and I'm as happy now as I was when I first received it. My first impressions when I picked it up was "this bass is so pretty". Everything about the fit and finish of the bass was flawless.
I'm not a professional bass player but I know tone and the tone is great. I have the bass paired with a Fender Rumble 350 and depending on amp settings, the bass tone ranges from smooth rolling or really punchy. I replaced the stock strings (which were fine) with flat wound strings and found that provided a better tone for my preferences. I like the short scale and it stays in tune really well too.
The only change I would make is to have a master volume knob to go along with the master tone. I personally don't need separate volume for each pickup. This is likely a great feature for others to dial in a specific tone, just not for me.

This bass was a very good addition to my collection as it is a little different in the "looks" and "feels" department. I have owned short-scale basses in the past, but nothing compares to the resonance of the Classic 4. The large, semi-hollow body gives the bass a nice, warm, fat tone in the low end. Bass lines sound incredible with some palm muting techniques and resemble an upright bass sound at times. In the middle- and upper-register, this bass solos very well. There is definition in the sound while still maintaining that woody "thump."
If I could think of some improvements to the instrument, I would suggest upgrading the bridge to a fixed piece rather than a floating piece. The intonation on this bass is not bad at all, but a fixed bridge would make it that much better, especially for those who travel a lot.
Overall, I love this instrument and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive studio instrument or instructional instrument. Plus, it looks amazing on stage!

I have wanted to play the bass for years but have never been comfortable with a normally strung base. I'm not a complete lefty, but there are some things that I just naturally do left handed so buying this instrument was a big gamble because I didn't know if I would be able to use it even. I still have a long way to go, but I am completely comfortable with this guitar. I opted for a semi-acoustic so that I can just pick it up and play whenever I want without upsetting the neighbours. It has a great tone and it is beautifully finished. Thank you Eastwood! It is wonderful.

I will say I was a little apprehensive when I ordered this Bass with out actually seeing it. The photos definitely do not do this beautiful sounding justice. The finish is a high gloss and the graining of the Walnut veneer is first rate. Like most of the semi hollow bodies I have played, this Classic 4 has a nice rich sound and well worth it.

I purchased my classic 4 in February of this year and I have waited until now to write this review. I wanted to really put this bass to the test and take my time doing so.
Overall it is a fantastic bass that is appropriately priced for what it is. It is versatile, and I am really impressed with how wide the range of tone is. The short scale is really fun to play and the classic 4 has a rather thin and narrow neck which makes for a "fast" fretboard.
I really like this bass... except for, the hardware. It is rather average (at best) and a little bit of a let down. The finish on the hardware is already wearing off. I would have liked to have had an option to purchase a delux kit or something that would have given me a higher quality of hardware. I would still highly recommend this bass though. Please consider an upgraded model for the future.
