Here is some exciting news! In late 2014 Eastwood partnered with guitarist Bill Nelson to create the Limited Edition Astroluxe guitar. Only 24 were made and they sold out in a flash. Since then many people have been asking for a follow-up model to compliment it. Once again we got together with Bill and are now proud to unveil the Astroluxe Cadet.
Like its big brother, the guitar is a semi-acoustic style with a slightly arched top and a single f-hole (which features a grille), but this time a double cutaway. The guitar is fitted with three Airline Argyle White Coil Pickups. There's a 3-way switch with volume and tone controls for the neck and bridge pickups, operating like a standard Gibson guitar. With the switch in the center position, the master volume knob operates as a blend between the middle and neck or the middle and bridge. The guitar is also available in a DLX version with Duesenberg Les Trem Tremolo system (can't imagine Bill's without a tremolo!).
