Up for sale, an Eastwood Hi-Flyer electric guitar in excellent condition and in perfect working order. This Eastwood is based on the final model of the long running Univox Hi-Flier series, originally produced between 1968-1977, and this particularly rare Eastwood iteration features a stopbar tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge, eschewing the more common vibrato. The tonewood complement is authentic to the Univox original, evoking a Mosrite with German Carve on the basswood body, paired with a maple neck and thick slab rosewood fingerboard. The stock overwound single coil pickups have a very P-90 look and tonal response, excelling at both ripping overdrive and glassy cleans, with a bolder neck position and bright, cutting bridge. The guitar weighs 8lbs 5oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
The neck has a very slender, fast-feeling C shaped profile carve with modest shoulder, measuring .775” deep at the 1st fret and .865” at the 12th. The thick slab rosewood fretboard features pristine medium jumbo fretwire, and the guitar plays cleanly in every register up the straight neck with an ideally adjusted and responsive truss rod. The scale length is 24 3/4“, and the nut measures 1 5/8“ in width. The headstock features Kluson-style tuners with greened tulip buttons that turn smoothly and work as they should.
The electronics function flawlessly, and the P-90-style single coils each meter at 7.4k ohms, governed by a three-way pickup selector toggle and Master Volume and Tone knobs. The chrome hardware has plenty of shine with light surface patina, and the plastic parts are equally well-kept, including the pair of black reflector cap knobs. Cosmetic wear on the bold gloss Sunburst finish is limited to light marks and scuffs, mostly relegated to the back and lower bout body edge. The neck profile sports a pristine smooth gloss finish.
A gigbag is included.
