Micro-Frets was a short lived American guitar brand from the late 1960's. They are quite rare and have become very collectable. We like them too and thought it was time to bring them back to life via the Eastwood Custom Shop! As we do with most, we'll make some modern upgrades and improvements, but keep the important parts and the aesthetics in place. The originals were short scale, we're upping to a modern 24 3/4" scale. The originals had a complicated tremolo and nut system that really isn't worth all the fuss, so we are offering it with modern tune-o-matic bridge and stop tail as well as a DLX model with the Les Trem tremolo system.


But the Martian Green finish? No way we want to change that! If we get over 200% funding, we might even do their famous Orange Burst. The wooden tip on the tremolo? Hell yes!


You can reserve yours now for a pledge of only $200 for stop tail, $250 for the DLX model. This Special Limited Edition guitar will be ready to ship in September 2016 at a final price of only $999 for the stop tail version and $1199 for the DLX tremolo model.
