The new model features a graphic tribute to "The Father of the Power Chord" by artist Vince Ray.
Toronto, Canada (November 24, 2013) -- Eastwood Guitars has teamed up with the legendary London based, Rock & Roll Voodoo artist Vince Ray to create the essential rock & roll machine, the Link Wray Tribute guitar. This professional grade six-string workhorse is a graphic tribute to “Father of the Power Chord” Link Wray, featuring original 50’s style illustrations by Vince Ray.
The Eastwood Link Wray Tribute guitar not only looks amazing, but it is built for speed and can take a thrashing. With professional grade tuners, pots, custom tailpiece, 3-way switching and dual volume/tone controls matched with a pair of Airline Vintage Voiced single-coil pickups, it is built to deliver that killer Link Wray tone. The White body is the canvas for Vince Ray’s stunning illustrative tribute to Link’s career and he used the front, the back and the case. The shinny black pin stripped headstock is topped off with a Vince Ray nameplate logo. This is a true gem of an instrument for any rock centric guitarist or collector.
“When I found out that Vince was a Link Wray fanatic like me” said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, “I knew we had to make the perfect playing tribute to the most underrated guitarist of our time and this is the real deal.”
This initial Limited Edition Release of only 24 instruments ships December 18, 2014 and has a Street price $799.
