After 12 months of collaboration between Eastwood Guitars and multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis (The Dirty Three, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Grinderman) the new Eastwood Tenor Guitar here. This is the fourth in a series of uniquely new stringed instruments from Eastwood Guitars which include the Airline Folkstar, the Airline Ukulele and the Airline Mandola.

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 weʻre 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".
