Pretty guitar, nice finish.
Neck was a little thick for my taste (but that's just me).

Normally, I don't buy guitars sight unseen but, after reading the reviews, I took the plunge. I'm glad I did. I had been looking at it for months but, I already have an acoustic tenor guitar as well as other guitars and ukuleles so, I kept telling myself that the last thing I need is another guitar!
The construction, finish and overall quality are excellent. In fact, it looks just as good as guitars that cost a lot more. I retuned it to DGBE, the same as the top four of a guitar. The action was a little high so I lowered it to my liking and adjusted the bridge for the intonation. The size is perfect. I have full size guitars but, I tend to gravitate to shorter scale guitars like this tenor. It's a lot easier on my wrist and I'm use to playing ukuleles also.
Since I just got the guitar, I'm looking forward to spending a lot more time with it. Good job Eastwood!

I love, love, love my new guitar! The finish is actually green with gold metallic fleck, really pretty. The fit and finish is good, the electronics are good, the quality is what I would expect from a modern guitar made in Korea, but the look is 1960's cool.
If you know someone who has wanted to play guitar forever but can't manage to learn on a 6 string, buy them this beauty. 4 strings, one for each finger on their left hand, and the strings are spaced forgivingly wide for fumbling fingers . This guitar will help you achieve those "Rock God" dreams.

Restrung with 16,24,32,42 and retuned as a ukulele with low g
Omg it sounds so good, straight in no effects. This version has two mini humbuckers with enough variation between the two. The bridge is pretty hot. Everyone is blown away when they hear it.

Any cellist looking to expand their sound should get one of these. The standard C-G-D-A tuning means all the notes and chords are right where you want them to be. The look of the instrument generates a lot of attention (guitar players will want to know what you're playing) and this one sounds fantastic. I was able to dial the perfect tone between the two pick-ups without any trouble. I only wish I'd gotten one of these a long time ago.

This is honestly the best guitar I've ever played. It has a wide tonal range - from bell like finger picked tones, biting clean jazz to rumbling guttural roar. It has excellent sustain too. I will definitely be investing in the five string version . Also take note left handers- Eastwood don't charge a premium for being one of the 10 percent - left and right handed are priced the same.
