  1. Wide string separation

    Posted by Bob Roth on 18th Sep 2014

    Forgot to include this in my review. Vega banjos were made with the string separation wider at the body (pot) than at the nut for easier fingering high up (pitch) on the fret board. Although the string separation is a bit wider, I had no trouble getting use to it.


  2. Warren Ellis Signature 2 Pick-up tenor guitar.

    Posted by Bob Roth on 18th Sep 2014

    Will start with the possible negatives, lest I forget them. Website never explains what 2P stands for. First figured it out from watching the video. Don't know if the guitar neck has a truss rod. Wish black version was available, although I am well satisfied with the Cherry Finish version. Positives: Case is a well made Fender clone. Don't believe the recommended fitted case will fit the guitar very well. Played it safe and ordered the Fender style case. No instructions with the guitar. Figured out the slide switches from the internet video (have to watch it closely). Have been looking for a four string electric guitar for years. Mostly expensive vintage acoustic versions can be found. This guitar is perfect for a tenor banjo player or a ukelele player. I'm a plectrum banjo player and plectrum guitars have been extremely rare through the years. Have never seen one. I took a chance on this guitar to see if it would work for me. Although it has the same number of frets as a plectrum banjo, it has a shorter scale. It has a 22 inch scale, while a plectrum banjo has a 27 inch scale. Whether you are a banjo player or a uke player, you'll probably have to change out the strings. The original strings can be tuned to plectrum or first four strings of a regular guitar (like a uke), however the string tension will be hard on your fingers. Gosh, I'm very well pleased with the guitar, more so than I figured I would be ordering it blindly. The on-line music houses don't carry the Eastwood brand and I wish they did. GC and Sam A** stores don't carry the line, either. Eastwood makes a wide variety of guitars and basses.


  3. Beautiful instrument! Well done!

    Posted by Bill Griffin on 5th Sep 2014

    This instrument is so well made, a really faithful repro of the early sixties Mustang - with the obvious difference. Beautiful finish (Cherry in my case), nice sounding pickups, great neck. Love this thing.

    The string spacing is a bit wide, but I can get used to that. My one complaint - the position dot on the 9th fret should actually be on the 10th fret if we╩╗re talking tenor guitar or octave mandolin (my tuning). Guitar players will like it, mando guys not so much. Once again, I can get used to it, but...

    Good job Eastwood - proud to be part of the family. And, as the saying goes, "I get it".
