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.
