  1. Yes, Virginia, there IS an affordable, quality lefty rig!

    Posted by Matt B. on 9th Nov 2015

    I've been playing bass for almost twenty years. This is the first left handed bass I have ever owned. All my others are righties flipped. What do I like about this bass? Almost EVERYTHING! Since so few southpaws are sold, it only comes in Walnut. I was a little apprehensive about that based on the pictures on line because it looks really flat, and mundane. DO NOT BE FOOLED! The deep reds that show are beautiful. The pick guard color isn't my favorite, but the pearloid shark tooth fret inlays, and nickel plated knobs look really good. The number of different tones that come out of this bass are good. The neck pickup is very warm sounding, the bridge nice and bright for those 70's rock songs, when playing both the ability to balance the tone is nice. The 30 1/2" scale length is comfortable (some I've played feel rather claustrophobic). Nice slim neck makes for a quick feel. There was very little set-up needed out of the box. I adjusted the action up a little due to fret noise, but again, maybe an eighth turn on the E string side, and less than that on the G. It's comfy hanging on my shoulders, not too heavy, and balances fairly well. I played a 3 hour jam session and had no complaints. Would I recommend this rig to any of my friends? Oh hell yeah!

  2. love this bass

    Had a few rehearsals so far. Sounds great, plays great. Surprised by how punchy the tone can be. Haven't changed the stock strings or done a set up. It played well out of the box. Got this to replace a similar bass in the same price range. Can't be beat I don't think for the price. Got great help from customer service when I bought it. Got a hand written thank you post card today. Great company. My 2nd Eastwood guitar, won't be the last.

  3. Its a Honey!

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Sep 2015

    Literally & figurately speaking, the Honeyburst is the answer to the dilemma I have...I want a short scales bass but also quest for the better resonance that longer scales provide. Not crazy about the approximate intonation that a wood bridge offers, but the trade off is probably the sweet warmth this bass has. A nice quench for some one who thirsted for an affordable approximation of an old Guild San Fran style bass

  4. Bass, Bass and more Bass

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Sep 2015

    I have always wanted a hollow body guitar but then at the crucial moment always played it safe and gone solid body. Looking online I came across the Eastwood Classic 4 on My Rare Guitars UK website - shop based in Liverpool, UK.
    I checked out clips of people playing some on you tube - the guitar looked excellent and was versatile with the sound it produced.
    The last time I bought a guitar was 20 years ago - A Music Man Stingray Bass from The Bass Centre in Wapping, London 1995. Previous to that in the late 80's I bought a 1974 Fender Jazz Bass made in USA and an 80's Squire Precision Bass made in Japan. As a youngster I was guilty of only buying or considering brand name instruments and overlooked other makes. As an 40+ adult I have realised after 26 years of playing that its all about the sound and feel of the instrument and to get past the name on the headstock.
    My Classic 4 Honey Burst is absolutely superb. It looks fantastic but more importantly - the bass sounds it creates is what I have been looking for. The guitar has the best bits of sound from my other 3 guitars combined. I have the resonance and smooth, rich tone of my Jazz Bass, the punch of my Music Man and deep E and intonation of my Precision Bass. I play it through a Marshall Head and my 1x 18inch Celestion Speaker and home built cabinet. The E string growls and the G doesn't loose any punch. My preferred position is the selector switch in the middle using both pick ups and guitar volumes up full. The neck is perfect to play its narrow which increases my speed of playing and is extremely comfortable. Its the best £450+ I have ever spent. The guitar is a joy to play and the finish and attention to detail is excellent. Thank you

  5. This Bass IS Classic

    Posted by Tyler S, Music Instructor, School of Rock Kitchener-Waterloo on 29th Sep 2015

    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!

  6. I love this bass

    Posted by Mike on 29th Sep 2015

    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.
