2019 Backlund Rockerbox
Backlund Guitars have a “retro-futuristic” look straight from the mind of John Backlund. He has partnered with Eastwood Guitars to bring these nostalgic, yet futuristic guitars to people all over the world.
Since launching this new line of Backlund guitars, the Rockerbox has quickly become one of the most popular. Each new installment improves and refines the design, but every model plays gorgeously. There’s even a bass variant! The description below is from the Rockerbox II DLX (with Bigsby tremolo).
This new version of the Rockerbox goes back to basics with just a neck and bridge humbucker, three way toggle, and volume/tone for each.
