The Hi-Flyer is a beautiful reproduction of the UNIVOX Hi-Flyer from the early 1970's. Vintage Hi-Flyer value has grown steadily in the past decade as it was used by the late Kurt Cobain of NIRVANA. Eastwood’s upgrades include a carved Basswood body mounted to a SET maple neck for an incredibly solid design. Two powerful P90 pickups kick out an incredible bite for the buck.

As a guitar player who was recruited into playing bass, I wasn't up for the challenge of taming a monster of a full sized bass. Any lefty player knows how hard it is to find a decent axe, so when I saw this little baby I knew she had to be mine. The neck is very playable right out of the box. The tone... sweeter that you can imagine. The 3-way switch allows a good variety of tonal signatures by using the neck pick-up, bridge pick-up or both. My band mates are always commenting about the awesome tone of this bass.
I love it.
