Eastwood Guitars Backlund 100

The John Backlund designed Backlund 100 is unique, but also tremendously playable. John has partnered with Eastwood Guitars to bring these fantastic designs to life after crowd funding the initial build - By a whopping 489% of its goal!

It’s loaded, like John’s original design, with a humbucker at the bridge, but the tonal possibilities are expanded by a cool “blade” single coil in the neck. A simple three way, tele-style, slider lets you switch between pickups and the controls are master volume and tone.

The body is made from Mahogany, with a set maple, “C” shaped neck with a 14” radius and medium jumbo frets.

It’s a surprising guitar, That reveals a singing tone turning everything up to ten and a subtle warmth by backing off the volume.

As unusual as the contours are, it fits like a glove and is as balanced as your favorite S-type. Stand out in the crowd, with a unique and fun guitar that delivers more than you’d expect.
