Guitar From Behind The Iron Curtain Revived

Eastwood says that from the late 50's/early 60's. DDR-made (East Germany) guitars were among the best of all the Eastern Bloc guitars, but still below the level that were being produced in UK and Italy at the time... so they are bringing one of them back, but improving the quality.

They tell us that the Eastwood Marma will keep its interesting body shape but feature modern upgrades including a pair of Chrome P-90's and a vastly improved Jazzmaster style tremolo with adjustable roller bridge, plus a  24 3/4" scale, bolt-on neck. Eastwood is targeting a release in Autumn 2015.

Pricing and Availability:
Final Street Price will be $599. Pre-funding is only $150. All pre-fund orders will receive a free $99 hardshell case.
