Eastwood Guitars introduces the new Marksman 5 -

Eastwood Guitars introduces the Marksman 5, a tribute replica to the ultra-rare 1957 Magnatone® Mark V designed by Paul Bigsby. The Eastwood Marksman 5 replicates the vintage original in almost every detail, but as with all Eastwood models there have been some solid improvements. The new Eastwood Marksman 5 is a classic vintage style guitar with modern play-ability and sure to hit a sweet spot in the marketplace.

The new Eastwood 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 favorites 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.
