Many of you are familiar with John Backlund’s fantastic guitar designs, but very few have ever had the opportunity to own one - until now. John has partnered with Eastwood Guitars to bring these fantastic designs to life.
Our customers have been telling us for years that his designs and our business model is a match made in heaven. We agree. We started with the Backlund 100 six months ago, it has now reached the hands of the supporters and it is getting rave reviews. Time for the next one, the Backlund 200.
