  1. I bought the Tele used for £350. I paid for a guitar tech to fit the pickups, bridge, heavier strings and dress the frets, so inc the cost of the pickups & bridge that was about £200. I did manage sell the stock pickups and bridge for £60. All up, £550. But with the sale of the stock parts I only paid £490.
  2. This guitar looks sweet as. Comes without the relecing and a choice of custom colours. The price tag will make your eyes water through. It's Fano Guitars take on the 1970's Fender Starcaster. http://www.themusiczoo.com/blog/2013/video-dennis-fano-on-the-new-gf6-guitar/ http://www.fanoguitars.com/altdefactoGF6.html Bring back the Fender Starcaster!.... at a reasonable price! http://www.telemodders.com/fender_starcaster.gif
  3. Hi Guys, I know the topic of strings in not the most interesting of subjects, but I just want to share something. I decided to try out the new Cobalt strings on my Telecaster, and noticed within a week ( playing the guitar for about 6 hours in total ) the strings have significant rust or some sort of oxidation has occured and the strings feel rough to play. Anyone else had a similar experience with these strings? I was happy with the string initially, but I doubt I will be buying them again. I will stick with my usual Ernie Ball 10-52 slinky top/heavy bottoms thank you.
  4. Keep up the good work. That's going to be one sweet guitar.
  5. I bought the guitar used from a music shop in Fife, Scotland, and have modified the guitar with: * Gibson 57 Classic (neck) * Seymour Duncan JB (bridge) * Gotoh Modern Bridge I must say, it sounds and plays great.
  6. The fact that he seldom played the Jagstang live, won't matter when people out there will still buy the guitar and Fender will pocket the £££. Let the guitar playing masses decide for themselves whether they want to buy and play a Jagstang.
  7. redman1401 - I have just started following you on Soundcloud, though I rarely use it to be honest. Thought I would post a link to some of the songs i've recorded using Garageband (without vocals) Is there a section on the forum where people can post some of the stuff they have recorded? I won't post anymore on this section that isn't related to the Eastwood Hi Flyer, I'm starting to go off topic now.
  8. Sweet man. Thanks for the upload. Ive got some recordings on Soundcloud under the name Rupture Farms.
  9. In regards to my guitar, I was speaking of replacing humbucker for humbucker. Maybe a Super Distortion like your Hi Flyer.
  10. Here is a photo of my Hi Flyer.
  11. Fender Telecaster 62 Custom (Japan) Next week this guitar is going to the shop to have a Gibson Classic 57 (Neck) Seymour Duncan JB (Bridge) and Gotoh Modern Humbucker bridge fitted. Stringing them Cobalt 10-52 on it too, just to try them out.
  12. http://www.flickr.co...in/photostream/ My Eastwood Hi Flyer Phase 4. I totally understand the benefits of replacing the bridge pickup, but I'm going to try and keep this guitar au naturel. I can't seem to upload my pictures without posting a link. I would appreciate a bit of help. Thanks

  15. I bought this guitar last week in the UK for £450 ( Inc hardcase ) I play right handed, but I bought the left handed model and had it adjusted to play right (I suppose I prefer the shape of the guitar when it has been flipped, I guess from seeing pictures of Kurt playing the guitar this way when I was a 14 year old starting off playing guitar) Now I am 26 and lucky enough to own the Fender Cobain Jag, Cobain Mustang and Eastwood Hi Flyer, that I use to dream about playing. The Hi Flyer sounds much better that I first anticipate. In fact, it sounds flipping amazing. The pups sound like they have a high output and produce a good tone when clean and distorted, with endless sustain. From what I gather, the humbuckers are an exact replica of the Phase 4's on the Univox. This guitar is very light weight and feels great to play. The professional guitar repair guy who setup my guitar is even going to get one now, and he's no Nirvana Fanboy.
  16. Hey,

    What are your thoughts on the sound of the Cobain Mustang? I've be been playing mine and the distortion sound from my DS-1 sounds weak, compared to when I play my Cobain Jag or Ibanez Roadstar.


  17. My sonic blue Cobain Mustang arrived today. It's very sweet. I didnt thing it would be delivered until the end of February... Arh well, happy days!
  18. Link from Fender Japan, Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang: http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=ja&u=http://fenderjapan.co.jp/&ei=LR4YT8mfHObU4QTdsJyIDQ&sa=X&oi=translate&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CDUQ7gEwAA&prev=/search%3Fq%3DFENDER%2BJAPAN%26hl%3Den%26prmd%3Dimvns
  19. Didnt Kurt have a Tex Mex single coil fitted to the neck?
  20. I suppose the 'Kurtiest' thing would be to design a guitar yourself, and get Fender to build it for you ( Jagstang ) Now, is that a punk rock thing to do? Don't get me wrong, i've been a Nirvana fan for a long time. I purchased the new Fender Cobain Jag in September, and it is a very cool guitar with excellent pickups.
