The Eastwood Stormbird is a based on the 1960's non-reverse Firebird. Loaded with P-90 pickups, stop tail, tune-o-matic bridge and featuring a set maple neck design. The Stormbird is well balanced, solid instrument that delivers what you would expect from a guitar at three times the price.

Everything on this guitar beats any expectation I had: weight, balance, feel, speed, tonality, quality of build, parts and pups, and comfort. I was hesitant about buying something that I couldn't get to play first -- but it's unbelievable that not only was it set up perfectly, it was IN TUNE!
For context, I've got a vintage Gretsch Country Classic, a Rickenbacker 330, an American Telecaster, an 80's MIJ Strat, a '74 Les Paul Black Beauty, a couple of Dean Zelinsky guitars, and a couple of Martin and Godin acoustics. Yet this Eastwood guitar is the most comfortable, stylistically versatile, and satisfying instrument to play of the entire lot. Seriously.

I've had this guitar for over two years an have absolutely no complaints. Being a lefty it's always hard finding quality guitars at a decent price. The neck an frets are nice, no sharp edges, dead spots or buzzing. I was originally planning on swapping the pickups out but the stock pickups are surprisingly solid. The only mod I've made thus far is a set of strap locks. May put a bigsby on at some point or a different pick guard. That is only due to personal preference as the stock bridge is good.
