Backlund 800

  • Description
  • Comments

Backlund guitars are new classics. Iconic "retro-futuristic" designs that hark back to another era, but also hint at the future. Many are familiar with John Backlund’s fantastic guitar designs, but very few have ever had the opportunity to own one - until now. John has partnered with Eastwood Guitars to bring these fantastic designs to life.

This new model 800 has John capturing the familiar elements of Strat's and Tele's but taking a futuristic approach to the design with a Les Trem tremolo, 24 frets and custom wound pickups to deliver something for the 22nd century.
