Eastwood Guitars Swinger Red Angled

Eastwood Swinger

Regular price $499.00 Sale

The Swinger was one of the most obscure guitars ever to come out of the Fender® factory. It was created in 1969 as a way to make use of spare parts left over from the Bass V and the Musicmaster. No more than a few hundred were ever made, never appearing in any of their catalogs or literature. As the Swinger decal peeled off most it was often informally referred to as the Fender® Arrow. There is a detailed article about its history on the Fender® website here.

The originals are now selling for $2500-$4000! As rare as they are, musicians like Jimmy Page and Tina Weymouth have taken them to the stage.

The Eastwood Swinger features a short 22.7” scale length, one high output single-coil blade pickup in the neck position, single volume and tone controls, and an upgraded 6 saddle fully adjustable bridge.
