Here for sale is a Eastwood Phase 4 left handed model set up for a right handed person in white with an Eastwood Hardcase. This guitar is a rare left handed model that is no longer available from Eastwood. The guitar is based very closely on the Univox Hi Flier made famous by Kurt Cobain and is great reproduction of the famous model he played in the Heart Shaped Box video. To achieve the same sound this left handed model has been set up to be played by a right handed person so it’s gets that little bit closer to the sound of Kurt’s right handed model that was set up for a leftie. That way the pickups and controls are inverted which adds to the overall sound and aesthetic. The strap buttons have been moved to the opposite bouts and actually balances the guitar better than the normal position. The right handed modifications can easily be reversed for a left handed player who actually wants a left handed guitar of course! The guitar plays excellently nice and light and has great pick ups that sound very close to Gibson PAF’s. The guitar has been well looked after and comes with an Eastwood hardcase that was purchased extra for this guitar. The guitar is in great condition all round with only a slight mark on the back of the headstock and light play wear.
The original Univox Hi-Flier Phase 4 model was introduced in 1977. It was the last in the Hi-Flier series that began in 1968. This model was featured in the popular Nirvana video “Heart Shaped Box”. Eastwood has replicated the body, neck profile, bridge and pickups in perfect detail with their Phase 4 model. This was one of the few maple fretboard models from the Hi-Flier family of guitars.
