'Cool' is in the eye of the beholder, but some might like this.

Discussion in 'Other Cool Guitars' started by JBacklund, Mar 7, 2019.

    I have found the weights on some of the models, but not this one. Is it light? For old people like me? And I am hgbuessing the knob on top is the 5 way pickups selector?

    2 pickups, two less control knobs, in the green color and I'd be in love

    I should probably take it down to the post office and have them weigh it. I don't think it's any heavier than my MIM telecaster, probably lighter.

    The rotary knob on the top bout is a five-way selector switch, but it seems to be somewhat awkward to use and probably should be replaced with a slide or rotary lever style switch. I would expect that any future variant of this model will have a different type of type of selector switch.

    I'll work on that, maybe Eastwood would go for that idea. This model did sell pretty well, so there might be some room for marketable variants of it. It's been suggested that I come up with some related double-cut semi-hollows too.

    I could see that hanging on the wall at an old style 50s era soda shop.
    that's not a bad thing - it just has that kind of look to me.

    I got in a bit of trouble for peeling the back part of the roof liner from a 3 hole Buick

    Hmmmm!

    The 'word on the street', is that a Rockerbox version with an ebony fretboard, two vintage-style humbuckers (not three), and with, or without, an optional Bigsby, may be soon forthcoming.

    I sense that it will still be finished in a two-tone of the same pattern as the existing Rockerbox, though the primary color will be gloss black, over orange, or a color not unlike 'Cadillac Green'.

    'Gold' may even be offered on the shiny bits.

    Stay tuned!
