Click any picture for supersize view!

Based on the famous Kay Barney Kessel Pro, the Eastwood Tuxedo oozes vintage and vibe and tone. The body is hollow for tone but compact for comfort. You could compare it to a Guild Aristocrat/Bluesbird or Gretsch Duo Jet in terms of design. The top and back are maple while the sides are mahogany for good tone. The 25.5 inch scale maple neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with 19 frets and block inlays. Dual custom P-90 pickups dish out big vintage tone. A trapeze tailpiece, vintage style tuners and a Tuneomatic bridge round out the hardware. The finish is black and is set off by nice binding and white plastic. A very cool package with tons of vibe!

This guitar features great playability and tone. The hollow body allows for many tonal variations. The neck is straight and the action is good. The pickups sound nice. Everything works as it should. This is a very nice guitar. Super, duper clean, almost New Old Stock condition. Only very light scratches. Super nice. Comes in a deluxe Eastwood hardshell case.

Vintage Kay guitars aren't cheap like they used to be and many need additional work to be playable. These new Eastwoods are not only affordable but very playable. A new one will cost you $899.99 plus shipping if you order direct, This one will save you a few bucks.
