Let's bring it back again! In 2016 Eastwood introduced the Marksman 5, a tribute replica to the ultra-rare 1957 Magnatone Mark V designed by Paul Bigsby. The Eastwood Marksman 5 replicated the vintage original in almost every detail, but as with all Eastwood models there have been some solid improvements.


The Marksman 5 features a comfortable lightweight tone chambered mahogany body in a vintage Sunburst finish. This 24 ¾" scale guitar has a 22 fret set mahogany neck, rosewood finger board, and measures 1 5/8" at the nut. The vintage sound is delivered through a pair of custom designed EW Alnico SCP90s with a 3-way switch, one volume and one tone control. The sound of this guitar is bright and glassy clean, but also responds well with distortion, making it a very versatile guitar. A major upgrade over the original Paul Bigsby designed Magnatone is a modern adjustable roller bridge to vastly improve the setup and intonation.


“The ’57 Magnatone is one of my personal faves in today’s vintage market, but unaffordable to most" said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "therefore I wanted to make a replica that did it justice and the Marksman 5 nails it.” The initial 2016 release was on 48 pieces.
