Backlund Rockerbox - Prototype


Story

A solid piece of Eastwood and Backlund history, here we have the original prototype for the Backlund Rockerbox! 

Some minor cosmetic tweaks were made on the production version, and therefore there is no other Rockerbox out there like this one. Note the pickups without surrounds, missing logo, and textured pickguard / truss cover.

"Backlund guitars are new classics. Iconic "retro-futuristic" designs that hark back to another era, but also hint at the future. Many 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. 

Since launching this new line of Backlund guitars, the Rockerbox quickly became one of the most anticipated... and it's easy to see why!"
