Eastwood Astrojet 2.0 DLX

By | 2013, Classic Guitars, New Release | No Comments
The inspiration for the Astrojet version 2.0 was the 1964 Astro-Jet from Gretsch®. Eastwood Guitars have made a few improvements over the original design, namely using a Bigsby tremolo (optional) rather than the old 60’s Burns model, and changing the middle switch from 3-way tone (mid/bass/treble) to a coil tap for a more versatile guitar.

Gibson Joe Perry 1959 Les Paul

Gibson Joe Perry 1959 Les Paul

By | 2013, Classic Guitars, New Release | No Comments
Of all the great original 1959 Standards out there—a pretty small number to begin with—Joe Perry’s own Les Paul (serial number 9-0663) has long been acclaimed as one of the finest. Slash, Boston area guitar legend Billy Loosigian, and Eric Johnson have all owned number 9-0663 over the years before Joe tracked it down and many phone calls, and near misses later, this amazing 1959 Les Paul returned to Joe Perry. Thanks to Gibson Custom and Joe Perry, you can now own the closest possible thing to Joe’s most prized guitar, in the form of one of a very limited run of replicas based on exclusive access to the original.

Gibson Moderne

By | 2012, Classic Guitars, New Release, Retro recreation | No Comments
Shrouded in the silvered mists of myth and legend, the Gibson Moderne has long been known as the enigmatic “guitar that never was”. A prototype was displayed at the 1957 NAMM show, at the time the Moderne was originally intended to be the sibling of the Flying V and the Explorer, but never made it off the launch pad the way the other two then-futuristic classics did. The new Moderne captures the look, feel and sound of the original, and puts it in the hands of players today.
