Eastwood 1975 Morris the Cosy Mandolin shaped guitar
I was drawn to the look of this Blueberry guitar when it was posted back in 2014, but I always thought that it was a bit too much, as a lot of the Blueberry is. A bit too ornate and flashy. The thought of a well proportioned mandolin shaped guitar has interested me since.
This Eastwood 1975 Morris the Cosy doesn’t exactly fit the image I’ve had in mind, but it is certainly worth a gander.
Modelled after a 1975 Morris Custom Mano Mania guitar best known as one of the main guitars for Pete Cosy from Miles Davis’ band, the Morris Cosy looks like a nice take on a semi-hollow 2 pickup design. It would be nice to see one in an non sunburst or even bare wood design to look like an old Gibson mandolin.
