Eastwood Guitars – Messenger


What has become a rare and collectible American made guitar, the 1967 Messenger is being brought back to life with a tribute model from Canadian company, Eastwood Guitars, Inc.

The original Messenger guitar was developed 40 years ago in California by a small company named Musicraft and is now best known as the guitar of choice by Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad) in the early 1970’s.

The new EASTWOOD model captures the seductive look of the original but simplifies the design with a Set Maple Neck mounted to a hollow body with Maple center block, Mahogany back, sides and a spruce top. The guitar features the distinctive cat’s eye f-holes giving it an unmistakable look.
