No, I hadn't. Eastwood makes some decent stuff. BUT- a Wolf with no purpleheart?? I'd need to see some photos of one of them before I'd plunk down any money. The photos are of the real Wolf- not their take on it. Wolf has some unique "landmarks" and I'd want to see what Eastwood has in those spots first. But you can get it lefty!

My expectation is that the body will not be a true hippy sandwich but a simple cap on top and back. The quilted top would have to be pretty thin too. I'd imagine the paddle will not have any laminations on the back as you really can't automate that. It will have a tune-o-matic setup and . Some of there stuffs pretty too. SO in the end you will have a Phred with real 5 piece neck-thru neck. Seems pretty well positioned between a Phred and a real custom. Unfortunately once you get up there in price it's a shame to not have the harmonica bridge and custom tail. Still, if they can pull it off at that price it will sell pretty well.

It's not a replica. Wrong woods, scale, no obel, etc etc. But they put out quality instruments.

The stuff that comes out of their custom shop tends to be better builds...diff factory etc.
For the price point, though, it's not too bad if someone wants to dip their toes in the jerry waters. The prices for most (good) replicas out there are really high for most consumers. And the Phreds, from what I hear, are pretty nasty. It'll be interesting to see what they produce.
