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.

Nice and light weight. Enjoy playing this bass. It came with round wounds on it. Sounds good but swapping out to flats. Pickups sound good too. Just need to get the bass professionally set up then it should be good to go!

I can't find anything I don't like about this bass.
I also have flats on it and I can cop so many different tones. Eventually I will go to rounds but I'm having to much fun right now.
Light weight, well balanced, killer tone and with a great 60's vibe. I should have bought this bass years ago.

This bass gets really great full, woody tones. With round-wound strings it can hang with rock, but I keep flat-wounds on it for alternative, indie, and folk rock. The pickups give some great variety intones. Love this bass.
