Eastwood Adds Hurricane Bass to Lineup

Eastwood continues their bass lineup expansion with the addition of the Hurricane Bass.

The Hurricane joins the recently announced Stormbird, offering a new 4-stringer based on the 1965 Magnatone Hurricane and bringing together elements of P and Tele basses.

The Hurricane’s body is basswood, finished in a classic Sunburst matched with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Building upon the old school factor, the company added a chrome bridge cover and a vintage-style finger/thumb mount.

The bass is fitted with a single coil pickup with volume and tone controls.

Eastwood’s Hurricane is available now for $429.

  1. So this is basically a single Jazz PU in the P-bass position?
    Not one bit interested…

  2. Personally, I don’t like the body shape, not a fan of basses with short horns. Other than that looks good to me, and it’s affordable.

  3. Well, they named it correctly, it blows.

  4. Looks like a killer bass for reggae/ska.
