A new twist on out best selling Classic 6. The HB version gets a pair of coil tapped Alnico Hot-10 Humbuckers for more versatility. Tone knobs are push/pull to actiavte. Optional Bigsby B-50 available. Based on famous 60’s Country Classic George Harrison look, we've developed an instrument with great balance, feel and tone. Maple top back and sides, set maple neck with unique fret markers.
The "HB" version has coil-tapped Alnico Hot-10 Humbuckers. Pull up the tone knob to get those classic thin/wooly Gretsch tone, push it back down for full on humbucker blues/rock.

The guitar is quite beautiful and seems to be well made considering its chinese. its definitley not as dark as the photos make it look. The case for it is very nice and has a little accessorie box where the neck lays. The case strangley smells like vanilla? but I cant complain about that. The neck is a bit chunky but it has a C shape feel but is nice as I have large hands. The neck like half a baseball bat which is quite comfortable for me. Thats also the reason I strayed away from the epihphone which has a sort of flattened neck which doesnt really work for me. My only complaints would be the tuners which seem a bit cheap (will be replaced with some locking tuners) and it has been going out of tune slightly but maybe they put new strings on it, not sure. Overall im quite happy with the guitar. Just a few improvements and it will be up to my standards but for the price you cant really go wrong.

I have a Gibson ES-335 and a Gibson ES-339. The Classic 6 HB at $549 is very close to these top of the line Gibson ES's .If you can't afford an ES you will get a very, very good guitar at excellent value for money, sound and build quality in the Eastwood Classic 6 HB.

Forget the Gibson, forget the Gretsch, run some flatwounds and this thing is incredible.
I genuinely think that years from now this guitar will be regarded as among the greatest guitars ever made.
All I can say is thank you Eastwood for this amazing guitar at an unbeatable price. If it wasn't for this, in the same budget i'd easily be looking at guitars about ten times worse.

Been looking for a335 copy for quite awhile. Tried a few , and none really did it for me. Until I saw an add for Eastwood in a mag. Love the looks ,that something I was looking for. Read the specs ,watched the vidios ,sold! Nobody I know has one of these. This git is a player big time! Every thing about it is right on. I would recommend Eastwood to all my guitar playing friends. Thanks for a great guitar!
