The SIDEJACK series are based on the 1960's MOSRITE. Mosrite guitars were made in USA and began gaining in popularity in the early 1960's with the help of The Ventures. This new model takes its inspiration from the popular 60's Fender Bass VI model. A 30" scale 6-string Bass that is tuned E-E, a full octave below the standard electric guitar

I own this bass and it is very fun to play and it is very unique. Every time I play it at a gig I always have people asking questions about it and being interested. It sounds awesome and I enjoy it. The only problem I have with it is the Whammy Bar. It will not stay in place. With one press of it, the Whammy gets loose and is ready to fall out. (note from EWG: These are press-fit. You have not pressed it in all the way. It takes a LOT of force to install, but once properly seated, it can't possibly fall out). Very annoying. I have chosen not to use the Whammy Bar at all and have just taken it out, which is very disappointing because that was one of the deciding factors when purchasing this Bass. My advice to Eastwood would be to have the Whammy Bar screw in (like a Stratocaster) instead of it being friction based, because it does not work the way it is. Other than that it sounds good and is fun to play and has been my go-to Bass since I've gotten it.

Really love the look of the black & pearl and it sounds great on my rig.
It's neck-heavy and tends to keel over when I let go, forcing me to keep my forearm resting uncomfortably on the body or hold it up with my fingering hand, which is inconvenient.
Also, when picked very hard, the middle strings have come loose from the ruts at the top of the neck.
Feels great to play on, happy with my purchase.
