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.

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.
