This is an Eastwood at a local shop (well, sort of local). Think there are enough knobs? One question. Where does the pick-hand go?

One question. Where does the pick-hand go?

I can tell you where it WOULDN'T be going - anywhere near the direction of my wallet. Way too fussy and cluttered for me, with all those knobs. Unless.....I notice the model's name is "Airline".....do you get complimentary drinks and waitress service with it?

:D :D :D

I think it's more likely that you have to have a pilot's license to play it.

That's totally awesome! If it's reasonably priced, I'd buy it in a flash. Love those old Japanese gadget monsters!

The owner and main shop of Eastwood guitars is about a 5 minute walk from my house. I have an Eastwood Corona (discontinued SG model) and it really is a nice guitar. It was about $400 CAD, and plays like a guitar worth twice that much. If you check their site, they use quality electronics and the craftsmanship is really very good.

I have enough trouble trying to figure out how to work the four knobs on my LP Can you imagine trying to read the user's manual for this puppy? " To create Sound X, simply adjust knob 1 countercloackwise to gain the desired effect. Afterwards turn knob 2 3/4 of a turn. Turn switch B off. Adjust accordingly." Nah, not for me.

Roy, Maybe you're in the market for something a little more conservative. Here's the more restrained 2 PU model:

+1!!

Love these things, and the prices are great. Maybe I'm too long an engineer, but these suckers are laid out so logically, it's obvious what to do with the knobs. A Gretsch more mysterious.

I've been asked what I want for #50. I've been thinking a guitar model from the mid to late 50's -- first issued in 1958 if possible. So far I've come up with:

Fender Jazzmaster
Gretsch Country Gentleman
Double cut LP Junior TV
Airline DX2 or DX3
Airline Map
Airline Tuxedo

Those Airlines are tres tempting -- soooo 50's man!

I write software for an engineering company and this is exactly why I design the UI and they don't. :D

I hire ID firms to do the Industrial and User Interface designs for the consumer products that my engineering department designs. We don't let our SW engineers design UI either. Same problem.
