    Whoa! Very, very cool! I hope they got the pickups right.

    I was tempted by the Eastwood Tuxedo, but it just didn't quite do it for me. Maybe one of these will.

    It's probably Korea. I know this sounds weird, but I can almost spot MIK by the inlays.

    these might even be cooler than the harmony repros..
    speaking of which... what the hell is going on here??!!
    is someone going to do teisco's next? or alamos?

    i love all 50's and 60's cheapos, weirdos, and bizarros... but I really wish the koreans and the (mostly) US companies behind them would get the details right. i.e. if a guitar was originally resoglass, make the new ones that way. if an original used celluloid tortoise, find that italian source and make new stuff, if they used little zippo looking pickups with weak alnico, then dont slap a rebranded GFS/artec mini-hum in it.. etc etc.

    the new danos are the only ones i can think of that stay relatively true to the originals, and people buy the hell out of them.

    man, thank god all these funky "2nd-rate" guitars from the 60s/70s are coming back. So much cool rock 'n roll vibe about them.
