Eastwood Hi-Flyer Phase 4 Electric Guitar
Eastwood Guitars brings back a classic guitar design with the new Hi-Flyer Phase 4, featuring a slanted neck pickup.
This guitar is based on the original Univox Hi-Flier Phase 4 model, introduced in 1977 and was seen in Nirvana's Heart Shaped Box video.
Although using modern materials, Eastwood Guitars designed the new Hi-Flyer Phase 4 guitar to be a true replica. It maintains all the fine details with regard to the asymmetrical shape and cut of the basswood body as well as the profile of the bolt-on maple neck. Eastwood hopes to provide the same vibe and sound as those found on vintage Univox guitars.
The Eastwood Hi-Flyer Phase 4 Hardtail model is based on the white guitar that Kurt Cobain used on Nirvana's 1993 music video "Heart Shaped Box". It features the same aesthetics and build, including the white finish and pickguard. The guitar has a set maple neck with a maple fretboard. It follows the same scale length of 24.75" and nut width of 1.625".
To replicate the vintage tone of the original, Eastwood equipped this guitar with Phase 4 Open humbuckers that follow the distinctive pickup configuration of the original. Tone controls are kept at minimum with 3 way switching and '70s style volume and tone knobs. Wrapping up its features is a Mintech 3-way adjustable wrap-around hardtail bridge. Since this is a replica of the guitar used by Kurt Cobain, it is also available as a left handed guitar.
A Sunburst Hi-Flyer Phase 4 is also available, this one is equipped with Mosrite style P-90 pickups instead of humbuckers and has a vintage looking Roller Bridge instead of the hardtail.
The Eastwood Hi-Flyer Phase 4 HardTail and Roller Bridge version is currently priced at $599. More information is available from Eastwood Guitars
