colonelstracker's review - Eastwood Guitars Breadwinner

Value For Money : Excellent
Made in Korea. Good finish.

Mahogany body, maple neck rosewood fingerboard (ebony from Ovation)
1 volume, 1 tone, 1 switch microphones, 1 phase switch

Reproduces a Breadwinner "Phase 2" with the mini humbuckers, and the jack on the front.

All like the original except from Ovation:


Cutaway body rounded instead of flat

Easel adjustable clutches instead of a three-point

Plate slightly different form

Standard head Eastwood

Buttons knobs a little "cheap"

weighs two pounds less


Active Electronics, 1 9V battery


The neck and body are exactly the same form as that Ovation is a treat. Easy to play, exceptional comfort and ergonomics in all positions.

Full access to the 24th fret.

The sound is nickel whatever the setting. There is a position of the phase inverter in which the volume is lower than for other combinations.


The sound is very bright, empty or connected. It sounds more 60 'than the original.

The precision of the violin is excellent. Including the finish of the frets, perfectly polished and do not catch the left hand.

The highs are very present, and this guitar excels on sounds to Johnny Marr. Mediums are a little behind but rich enough. The bass is very sharp with a grain slight.
The volume control allows precise adjustment of sounds "crunchy."

I am a heavy user of effects turns, and this guitar is quite suitable.

Distortion in the treble cut like razors, super <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />


It's been a month.

Purchased from the original liner.

A very good value for money.

Purchased from Eastwood on leu website. A quick note for their exceptional level of service and their great disponilité, copy!

I can probably do it again this election.

And I even eyeing their Sidejack baritone <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />

Another plus: the special case is also perfect for the original.
