Eastwood Hi-Flyer

Here's a Hi-Flyer in it's natural environment, nestled between a couple of crusty-but-imposing amps.  But wait - a set neck?  A hefty body with fresh electronics?  Why it's not an old Univox at all, it's one of the sweet new Eastwood reissues.  True, the old Japanese Hi-Flyers have their own sleek, super-lightweight charms, but the Eastwoods feel a lot sturdier, while keeping the same Mosrite-derived reverse body style.  Of course, we've got a few of the old ones around, as well - more on those later.
