Another Retro/Future Beauty From Senn and Eastwood

Jeff Senn is releasing another of his retro/future designs through Eastwood Guitars. These are being manufactured in the same plant as Duesenberg and Reverend, and so are a bit more expensive than the Model One Also, unlike the Model One, Senn will not be offering a hand built version, so pre-ordering direct through Eastwood is the only way to get The Continental. This pearloid beauty is a limited release so, if it appeals, act now.


Senn By Eastwood Model One

When I posted about the Senn Model One guitar back in July, I said the only two things stopping me from getting one were the near three grand price tag and the lack of a vibrato arm. The gods listened. For a limited time Jeff Senn is offering, through the Eastwood Custom Shop, a version of the Model One for $679 USD—and it sports a Jazzmaster/Jaguar-style vibrato system! Gone are the Lollar/Senn pickups, but the basic vibe remains the same and it sounds great when Jeff plays it. Now I just have to get one in for review and possible possession. Yes, Senn’s playing, though terrific, is retro rather than modern, but the guitar’s look remains class A retro-moderne.
