Story

Our first guitar to hit the Hooky Series won’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with Hooky’s career and musical background.

Joy Division’s live TV performance of ‘She’s Lost Control’ in September 1979 for Granada TV and Bernard Sumner’s use of his customised 70’s Shergold Masquerader guitar for that performance guaranteed it’s place as an iconic part of rock music history.

As the Eastwood Hooky Series is our tribute to the original Shergold models, we’re delighted to release the Eastwood Hooky Raider Guitar as our tribute to that specific guitar.

Raiding the designs of both the original Masquerader and our Hooky Bass 6 PRO model, we’ve also added some of our own design decisions to make the Hooky Raider stand up as a model in it’s own right.

We’ve used Alder for the body to keep the overall weight down, while also maximizing the resonance.

Add an incredibly versatile electronics set up, including an ELDRED MOD* for each pickup, and you have a guitar that has everything! 

We don’t say this lightly, the Hooky Raider is truly a versatile beast!

*Eldred Mod? What's that?

In addition to the regular 3-way pickup selector, each pickup has its own 3-way selector that allows you to switch the Humbucker between:

  • Humbucker
  • Single Coil
  • Single Coil Eldred Mod

  • The Eldred Mod is a low value capacitor that we installed to each pickup. This enables a different/extra tone from the same pickup in Single Coil mode (coil-tapped), giving you two alternative single coil sounds to work with on each pickup.

    At its core the Hooker Raider is a Dual Humbucker guitar (and fantastic just like this, btw), and then depending how you want to move to a Single Coil you've got the two options:

    -The Eldred Mod position can be a better balance against the HB, because it's mellower and more tonally aligned to the HB, there's less 'NOW WE'RE IN SINGLE COIL!!' about it.

    -But then again, sometimes you want that full on ‘cut through anything’ sound of a Single Coil… if you want that, it’s there for you.

    And this is before you get into how they all work in combination with each other too! For instance, BRIDGE-HB with NECK-SC is quite a different flavour to BRIDGE-HB with NECK-SCEM... it's pretty versatile.
