    Isn't Eastwood making one of these (w/ a J. "Son" Lollard Whore-shoo p'up and a Coughman Vibuntoon trem outfit)?

    I have a bakelite with silver plates Ric from pre WW2 spanish guitar, not a steel guitar. They originally had bakelite necks with molded bakelite frets. When those frets wore out you could get a wooden fretted neck like a normal guitar. That's the neck on mine. Why I'm commenting here is because my guitar has the same tuners. They are cheap and mine are almost too worn out to use. The horseshoe pickups sound awesome but are difficult to live with because that's right where your hand wants to be. Kind of like playing a tele with the ashtray on. The guitar in the picture has the Kauffman sideways vibrato.
