Toronto, ON (January 9, 2009) -- Eastwood Guitars will introduce the new Monolith guitar, the only guitar in the world to feature the revolutionary three voice Monolith pickup from rebelSonic. This guitar will be unveiled on January 15 at NAMM 09 in Anaheim, CA, at the Eastwood booth #1331, Hall E.

The Monolith is not just the biggest pickup on the planet; it’s a completely new concept in pickup sound and design. The Monolith is actually three totally different sounds, not available in any other pickup, all packed in to one seriously over-sized shell. The three Monolith sounds are: JackHAMMER - a Humbucker on steroids, cementMIXER - a deep, dirty sludge tone, and icePICK - a P90 on steroids that cuts through the thickest mix. The result is one guitar that takes the place of three guitars.

These first Eastwood Monolith guitars are destined to become collector editions. All 48 guitars feature the Made in USA rebelSonic Monolith, a limited edition hand-wired pickup. To make your guitar something special, Eastwood is also making available optional custom chrome and clear plexi pick guards, alternate switch tips and each guitar is professionally preset to Eastwood sonic perfection.

"The originality of the three voice Monolith comes from our guitar mastermind Joey Leone," stated Mike Robinson, President of Eastwood Guitars, "and I liked the idea so much that we joined forces with him and our creative marketing guy, Grant Ivens, to set up a new company called rebelSonic, to develop new guitar tone products for all guitars."
