Backlund guitars are new classics. Iconic "retro-futuristic" designs that hark back to another era, but also hint at the future. Many are familiar with John Backlund’s fantastic guitar designs, but very few have ever had the opportunity to own one - until now. John has partnered with Eastwood Guitars to bring these fantastic designs to life. The Marz 6 is the fifth and latest in the series. Check out all the production models here.
For this production the new Marz 6 we will continue with the color scheme and pickup configuration of the first four releases in the series. Featuring High Output Blade Single Coil in the neck and a Custom Wound Double Coil in the bridge with a 5-way switch. Please review the CAD drawing for positioning of controls and output jack.
