Eastman Guitars are made in Beijing, China, by a team who clearly take pride in their work. Their quality, in my experience, is on par (at least) with Custom Shop offerings from the two main US brands. The Juliet, introduced in June 2022, is an original design that has a ton of great features, all aimed at making the playing and listening experience a pleasure - and it does. This model, the 'Pomona Blonde' is one of three Juliet models. The Juliet-PB boasts Gotoh hardware, Bare Knuckles 'Old Guard' Humbuckers, Okoume 1-piece body and neck, ebony fingerboard, and Truetone finish. It is a very tight, light and easy ride (on the ears as well as the fingers). The single cutaway body design should appeal to most and I know the weight and balance will make players happy too. Check one out. I think you'll be duly impressed.
The Juliet range is scheduled for worldwide release (meaning: you can buy one) late August/September 2022.
