Below: One last Teisco, a Mosrite Joe Maphis copy, which was also the inspiration for the Eastwood Sidejack Series. I must say that this is perhaps one of the coolest guitars I have. Below: A few more Guyatones, the second one has a set neck, may be from the late fifties. Another 2015 Eastwood Custom Shop project was the Guyatone LG-50. Below: Another of my favorite designs, the EKO 700, in two models, 4V and 3V. According to my neighbor, one of the best playing guitars in the entire collection, the single pickup 1967 Red Cobra. Below: According to me, one of the best playing guitars in the collection, the Goya Rangemaster. As is the beautiful Red Galanti and the Espana 335. The GL Rangemaster is another outstanding Italian guitar. Then, the ever-popular but VERY hard to find 1967 Teisco May Queen.

Another wonderful Pre-CBS Strat, with an incredible flamed maple neck with brazilian rosewood board and clay dots.

Perfect Spaghetti logo, small headstock with a very beautiful figured wood, Kluson Deluxe "double line" tuners, "L" serial number.

Interesting because it as an indiviual slider volume for each pickup, so you can dial in an unlimited variety of tones. An early 1960’s Vivona which was made by EKO, and a wee Hi-Tone. It is from Italy, and looks, feels, smells, just like the JG Italians. Below: On the left is a RARE Wandre Doris from the mid 1960’s. Next is a nice ’67 Fender Jaguar and the ’67 Domino Spartan, costing about 7000% less. ) Though nothing really beats the mojo of owning a true, vintage instrument, at least Eastwood have, over the past decade, done a great job at bringing back some of those gems, as mentioned before.

Lastly, an EKO Florentine Bass with it’s partner 6-string.

I have owned many Domino Californian’s over the years (the VOX Phantom copy). Domino made one of the better quality reproduction guitars in the late sixties.

The Spartan pickguard was autographed by Edwyn Collins.The Airline Guitars were sold through Montgomery Ward.Below: Perhaps my favorite 1960’s guitars, the Domino’s.Great jazz and blues guitar, all original including the frets. Figured ash body, two-tone sunburst finish, maple neck and bakelite parts.The body is dated March 1956, has a very deep contour which makes it light and comfortable.The Spaghetti logo on the headstock is in great shape, and next to the original round string-retainer there is another hole, professionally plugged and touched-up, from some mysterious "thing" once screwed to the headstock; whatever it was, it's out of the strings line, in a position which makes meaningless another string-retainer, so I have no explaination for it. Also the tone and volume knobs and the trem-arm and switch tips are made of bakelite.
