Eastwood Guitars announce the introduction of the new Eastwood Marksman 5 guitar, a tribute replica to the ultra-rare 1957 Magnatone® Mark V designed by Paul Bigsby. The Eastwood Marksman 5 replicates the vintage original in almost every detail, but as with all Eastwood models there have been some solid improvements. A major upgrade over the original Magnatone is a modern adjustable roller bridge to vastly improve the setup and intonation. Features a comfortable lightweight tone chambered mahogany body, 24 ¾” scale, 22 fret set mahogany neck, rosewood finger board and a pair of custom designed EW Alnico SCP90s pickups.
