Will- Welcome! Glad you got it sorted out quickly. I'm in the same boat as Bill- taken way more than received here over the years.

Posting photos tutorial (you can't post "directly", you have to have the photos uploaded to somewhere online and then link to them):

Anyone else get an Eastwood Tiger? Anyone .... anyone ... lol!
First off, welcome to the forum! There are a lot of really helpful people here, don’t be afraid to ask a question.
Second, very nice guitar, and nicely done on the video. I hope it brings you years of enjoyment.

I do not have a Tiger, but I do have the Eastwood Wolf Tribute. Like you mentioned, one of the things I love is it’s not a “clone” of Wolf. Just a beautiful tribute to that legendary guitar.

I know many of us that got a Wolf, realized quickly the gain needed to be turned down. I have mine rolled all the way down, like you were suggested to do( which seems to have worked out well for you, as it did me )

Just a FYI, in case you weren’t aware. In my experience, Eastwood has top notch C.S.. All of my emails/questions ( rough guess 30ish emails )have been answered either within a few hours or the next day at max. That C.S. Doesn’t stop after the 45 day “return policy” either, so if you have a question for them. I wouldn’t hesitate to email them either.

I love mine, and am so glad I finally pulled the trigger. Mines set up exactly like I want it. Which is a combo of some of Jerry’s spec, combined it’s some things I prefer. Once I got it dialed in, it just sing. Between it, my new reissue 65 Deluxe Reverb, and some select pedals I am beyond happy.

I truly hope, you also get it dialed in and let the songs fill the air.

You may be uninterested in this but if you want to experiment with a tiger sticker for your Eastwood Tiger, Jockomo's stuff is excellent. I believe the link below is to Jockomo's website. The quality is remarkable for a $10 item and they're easy on, easy off.

Also pictured below is an old photo of my (left) Philtone Tiger and (right) Warmoth Tiger (which I sold upon gaining the Philtone). The Philtone's fret and tiger inlays are real. The Warmoth's are Jockomo stickers.

And the final two pics below are even older photos of my Tele. I've had the rosebud sticker on it for more than a decade now. Looks like new still.

Unless you're close enough to a guitar to almost need your reading glasses, Jockomo's stickers'll fool ya.

Ok so pics were a bust, but here’s a link to a YouTube video of me playing the Eastwood Tiger.

Just saw this. Seeing and hearing you riffing to Bertha on your new Eastwood Tiger warms the cockles of my heart!* :cool:

BTW, you hold and use your pick pretty much just like I do on my Tiger - between the bridge and middle PUPs. I think in our fixation on physical gear items, we sometimes miss or minimize the importance of technique. To me, where I pick on my various guitars makes a significant difference in the tones I get. And the best thing is, this is a variable we can experiment with for free.

Thanks Jon! By the way, I ordered some decals from Jockomo. They look really cool and I figure even if I don’t end up with em on my guitar, I am still supporting a creative head who is making really cool stuff for the community! Also very cool how they don’t mark or harm the guitar when they come off.

Totally agree. For every piece of gear we buy, there are a thousand notes and melodies to be played, techniques to be mastered and songs to be sung!

Nice Tiger tribute, I hope it’s everything you hoped for and more!

To join in the hijack: I put a wolf sticker on a 70s vintage Japanese hollow body LP. The badge on it is faux-abalone-inlay “Atlas,” accompanied by a lighting bolt on headstock, so it seemed apropos. It gets a lot of attention, and not just from heads.

Sorry it’s such a crappy pic; I pulled it from a video.

Dang, I’m in the middle of ordering a handful of stickers from Jockomo, and the only shipping option, DHL, is $24! I don’t remember if it was that steep a few years ago or not… I don’t remember a lot. Well I guess that makes up for the reasonable sticker prices.
