This guitar was hand-made by Brian Eastwood in Bacup, UK.  I custom-ordered this 1957 Fiesta
Red relic model after seeing my first (used) one at Big Boss in Tokyo.  That one was already sold,
priced at 450,000 yen (woah).  I researched and contacted Brian and he made the same one for
me for about 1/2 the price.  This one made the cover of Guitar Graphic magazine, which is
included in the sale.  The guitar is made of light glass fiber bonded to an obeche core, which
makes it feel the correct weight of a light strat.  Equipped with Kent Armstrong pickups, the middle
is reverse-wound to give a nice humbucking blend. She plays effortlessly despite the wild design.
