  1. I see you carry an Eastwood guitar in TV yellow. I’ve been reading up on some early history of guitars, and know that bright yellow as a color for guitars was first used in the 1950s. Reason was that it was believed that white guitars would reflect too much light and be glaring on the early black & white TVs. The yellow came off as white, and the name TV Yellow was given to the color. It has remained popular as a color for guitars for half a century.
