I see your name on the bottom of the photos John . You have a great imagination ... i like it
Love the backlund stuff! It’s like what the Jetsons would play but in real life
Not photos, these guitars only exist as my concept illustrations of them, which I created back in 2008-9. I pull them out now and then and post them in appropriate places.
Those are really crazy. Love 'em!
The 100 and 300 are even more Jetsony
Those are too cool! I want to see the car you designed....
Thom Bresh's super Dualette. Wish I had a pic to post. Very neat looking guitar.
I like the blue/gold one with the blue block fret markers.
Be careful what you wish for....
... Just Kidding!
Those are cool, especially the blue one, of course. I'd pay someone to build something like that!
That's the good stuff! Glad your here man.
From what i've gathered, and i could be totally wrong, his contractual obligations may be ending soon, so you might not be far off the mark.
If you mean me, my only contractual obligations are with Eastwood Guitars, and they'll continue until one of us says 'stop', might be next year, might be ten years, might even continue after I'm gone. Who knows!
Do you have dimensions and scale length projections for this bass?
Solid or chambered construction?
I love your stuff.
Are these spectacular graphics only or real guitars that you actually built?
EDIT: Just noticed that you already answered this question.
Hahaha. Somehow I knew that you would like especially this guitar, Jim.
It was offered by Eastwood about three or four months ago for a 45 day period, but it failed to attract the number of pre-sale deposits to meet the minimum number required by the manufacturer to justify (read: bothering with) building them, which was an amazingly low 12 units. So the project was abandoned by Eastwood. So, as far as I presently know, they won't be built. The image is my digital Illustration of it, none exist.
The guitar's technical specs were removed from Eastwood's website when the project was abandoned, and, off the top of my head, I can't recall them either. Eastwood told me that they might renew this bass project sometime in the next year or so, but I don't know why they would after it flamed out so badly the first time they tried it.
Although there is currently another bass design of mine being offered by Eastwood (model 100B solidbody), it is, at this time, also selling very poorly, and it's questionable whether or not it will meet manufacturing minimums. Regardless, after the Rockerbox bass performed so miserably in sales, I have decided to avoid the bass end of guitar design in the future.
