One of our most anticipated stands to visit across the NAMM show was the Eastman stand. A guitar manufacture that has resonated with both staff and the punters. The highest quality, hand-made, Nitro finished and USA pickup loaded guitars for an incredibly affordable price. We were keen to get our hands on the Eastman Romeo. (hurry up and get them to Australia!) and had heard of the new solid body single and double cuts with Lollar P90s they were launching.
The award winning Romeo lived up to expectation. A hugely resonant and slightly larger than we'd thought. A beauty to admire and play. It's nice to have a more unique shape amongst the lines to appease those looking for 'just one more guitar.' With an outstanding Antique Varnish finish and a pair of Jason Lollar Imperial humbuckers the interest has been heavy on the coming shipment. Throw in a new model Romeo with a single coil in the neck we'd suggest getting in contact asap to secure one!
The new SB55/v-SB and the SB55DC/V were show stoppers in short. Ebony fingerboards, Lollar Under Wound Dog ear P90's, antique varnish finish and 1 piece neck, and bodies. These were hard to top in the most exciting guitar release this year for us. A bunch are ordered and we'll be seeing them towards the middle of the year. A couple are already spoken for thanks to some keen eyed customers but should be a few left! We'll be doing our best to get hold of 1-2 of the SB56's in Limited Edition Black too. Absolutely spectacular.
It was really nice to get some closer looks and hands on the more premium acoustic range as well. Our experience with the affordable PCH range has been brilliant and we look forward to extending the Eastman Acoustic range into 2020.
