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 can't play a six-string guitar. I have like a mental block against it. While looking for alternatives, I found the Tenor Guitar, and once I decided to buy one, I finally came across the Warren Ellis Tenor. I wanted an electric tenor, so this was perfect. It's a REALLY pretty piece and sounds AMAZING. Stays in tune. Sounds great accompanying keys or a six-string, and with or without effects. Perfect for me, feels great in my hands. AND it's totally affordable.

If you're a tenor guitar player and you want an electric guitar where are you going to go? Eastwood Guitars, That's where. I would walk into Guitar Center and there were hundreds of guitars hanging on the walls and NOTHING for me. Well now there is! A real guitar built from the ground up to be a tenor, not a bastardized 6 string that's never really right. The scale is perfect and the wider neck is really fantastic once you get used to it. Thank you Warren Ellis and Eastwood Guitars for creating this beautiful little instrument. Oh, it feels great and it plays in tune. Get any one you can. You won't be disappointed!

I was playing this guitar last night in Milwaukee,the prototype,and in the middle of Higgs boson Blues it dawned on me, this is perfection,some strings,a pick up and nothing else. The beauty is in the fact it's versatility is down to where you play picking hand. I am so proud to have my name on this guitar

I really got excited when I saw this guitar come out. As a tenor guitar player, there aren't many tenor makers anymore. This guitar has a really good build quality. I also like the rail pickup in the neck. My only two minor complaints that keep it from a 5 star is the neck is a little wide for my taste, and I think that the new two pickup version is superior. But if you're looking for a unique instrument to break the monotony of regular guitar playing... This is it

Just look at it. It's a mustang flavored tenor begging to be flashed around on the Ed Sullivan Show by some fab british invasion band. Yes, it's got the look. And ... even in this single pickup model (only reason it's not 5 star) it has bite and power due to the actual variability of the tone control. The neck is a dream and mine required no extra setting up. I love this machine and look forward to owning another Eastwood.
