    Default Eastwood LP tenor

    I have one ordered. Once here, I will give the full rundown of fit and finish!
    It will be tuned in GDAE.

    I play my Eastwood Mando almost every week and want to see how this fits for some of the more up tempo stuff we do at the beginning of each set. I'm also very curious to see how the P90s sound as well.

    I need another tenor like a hole in the head but they got those colors EXACTLY RIGHT. Headstock logo looks great, too.

    Yeah for me that is definitely a tempting tenor. My two favorite guitars (a ‘68 LP and a Hamer Artist) both have P90s. I love the P90 punch. Hope you receive a primo example!
    Blow on, man.

    It's not one of their current production models (like the Warren Ellis Tenor or the Classic Tenor), it's a custom shop project. Enough people had to commit to getting one (crowdsource funding like GoFundMe) in order for them to get built. I'm not sure where that leaves people who want to get one now. Even though it says it ended in March (or that is when it was fulled funded) it looks like you can still "Support" the project and get one for $599?

    23" scale is almost full LP scale length of 24 3/4" The body size must be almost (or exactly?) full size.

    The good news: I have a box!
    The bad news: I have about 3 hours before I get to open said box.

    Alright, got the box open! It is gorgeous... Not yellow, but gorgeous!
    The packaging for shipping was outer box, padding, inner box, padded gig bag, soft foam wrap, guitar.
    The cherry color has more depth to it than the pictures I had seen show.
    The silly thing, after travelling from Illinois to oergon was in tune. Seriously! It was in tune.
    Set up is really good, just need to move the pickups a touch closer to the strings.

    Now, as to reaching chords, I get to learn some new technique as I am not used to that much each and my stubby fingers are, well, stubby.
    I will plug it in tomorrow when it isn't 10pm.

    Just ran the LP through its paces on my Vox modeling amp. First thing? Those P90s are sooooooo much hotter than what is on any of my other instruments!
    As to the tone? Very cool, rich and varied depending on what pick up you are using. This is going to be fun! The set up is 99% where I want it out of the box... minor things to do per taste.
    I would highly recommend one if you are thinking of going with a solid body that isn't out of a custom shop!

    The P90s have a nice creamy sound on my clean channel with tone at 7 and volume at 5 with both pickups.
    Having not played a tenor prior, it looks like I can even fake it through a bass line as needed.
    Thursday night is my first rehearsal through the house system and my pedals... That will be revealing!

    I couldn't wait, so I buzzed over and plugged into the sound system and we dialed it in.
    Clean tone is freaking rich and awesome! Mild OD will blend in nicely. My Univox Superfuzz clone screams and this thing has sustain for days!
    Overall, I am very, very pleased!

    So, tonight at rehearsal we ran through the full set and everyone like the sound it added. Then after going through the set all the string players took turns and had a go. After full on work from folks with tone, volume and pedal experimenting, serveral guys declared that they would love to play one!
    Even the die hard PSR and Strat guys were loving the tones this tenor can produce!!!

    What a fantastic investment.

    I'm still kind of into the "classic" model they do as I'm getting joy tuning my acoustic GDGD doing jazzy type stuff. Dunno what the quality is like. Hoping my mate might buy something off me to fund it.

    I'd still like to have an "octave" bass tuning so basically all in fourths. God knows what I'd tune to and what strings.

    My Mum has given me 500 towards this. Gonna order!
    Can't decide between yellow or cherry. I think the yellow is well funky though
