I just caught wind of this. That guitar is badass. But if the manufacturer is Eastwood, no way would I buy one. I had such a bad experience with the guitar I bought from them. They took it back, but what a piece of junk.
EDIT: Got to the end of the thread. My guess was correct. The Eastwood 12 string hollowbody I received from them was nowhere near the quality of Reverend or Dusenberg. Will these be made by a different manufacturer than the one which makes the Eastwood hollow 12's?
I don't know who made that model for them, but it wasn't who will be building the 'Backlund' 100's, that will be Korea's Mirr Music Co.
Eastwood has (very) recently moved their guitar manufacturing to the same Korean company that builds the Reverend guitars (Mirr). My sample Retronix R-100, which except for the headstock design, color finish, and possibly the tuners, is exactly the same guitar that Eastwood is offering. I chose the two current color choices and re-designed the headstock (I hate the 'pointy' Retronix R-100 headstock, even though it was 'borrowed' from another of my guitar designs, but believe me, I had no part in choosing it for the R-100) to separate it from the four earlier pre-production examples made for Retronix, one of which I now own.
