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.

I got this after finding the usefulness of my Eastwood Mandocaster lacking. I am a guitar player turned mandolin player (mostly just acoustic) and wanted electric sounds for recording. The Mandocaster gave me far fewer sounds and options than this W.E. Tenor. I changed the strings and tuned it GDAE (like a mando) so I could would not have yo transpose all of my chords and notes. This thing simply rocks with a hot blade PU, HB and the ease of 4 strings tuned in 5ths (or 4ths if you prefer). Since I see the fretboard differently tat a 6-string I have been really exploring and finding great new sounds. Only played thru my Crate acoustic amp...but it still kills it. Full 5 stars cuz it's so unique and damn useful.

I got this in April and it ruined me for playing my other instruments. I run this through a Vox modelling amp and it's really a great combination. The mini humbucker is REALLY hot and has a fantastic sound. It's hard to believe that such an unassuming instrument can have such presence and everyone who has heard me play has been amazed. I had a Soarsey archtop tenor and always wanted an electric version but didn't want to pay the huge price tag that comes with other brands. This is a great deal and a quality item. The finish on mine is perfect, the controls are smooth and it has a solid feel to it. If you're considering this and are unsure, you can put your uncertainty aside; this is a fun instrument to play and you won't be disappointed.
