Hacienda Peter Hook Ltd Edition Bass Guitar 
A series of six long scale EB2/335-shape bass guitars are to be custom built by Brian Eastwood with HAC numbers HAC 51 to 56 utilising pieces of the original maple wood dancefloor of FAC 51 The Hacienda.

The design ideas have been put together by Peter Hook and Chris Hewitt and are being turned into reality by custom guitar builder Brian Eastwood.

The initial idea came from discussions between Hooky and Chris Hewitt about how pieces of the original Hacienda maple dance floor they were sorting for another project were about the right width to make a maple fretboard for guitar necks. And so the idea of a Hacienda Peter Hook Bass Guitar was born.

A lot of the innovative features of the Hacienda internal design / architecture will be incorporated into various parts of the guitar, the first of which will be ready and in use when Hooky performs at The Factory in Manchester on 18 May 2010.
