Mark Monarch 16

Lou: First off, I love the guitar. Acoustically it sounds great. In some ways I wish it were a little bit louder. That clearly tells me that removing the sound post was an excellent idea. The action on the guitar is incredibly fast and easy to play. It is incredible how this style of guitar […]

Wayne Eastman Jazz 16

I’ve been meaning to email you earlier, but have been pretty busy…Playing that Jazz 16! I can’t put it down- Wow, it’s like nothing I’ve played before and I’ve played almost everything for last 35 years. I’m not a Jazz player per se, but a generalist and play many styles of music. I don’t know […]

Eric B. Eastman 810ce

Hi Lou, Just a note to say what a wonderful experience it was to meet with you to purchase my new guitar. Your store is amazing, your wealth of knowledge and experience incredible, as well as your willingness to share yourself and the wisdom of your experience. Very generous indeed! As I said to you […]

Peter A. Vintage

Another fabulous guitar.  This is one of the nicest archtops that I have ever played!  The amplified tone is outstanding.  The acoustic tone is clear and round. What can I say? Thank you Lou! You are the best! -Peter

Candido D. Monarch 16

Lou, I want to let you know how much I love my new Monarch 16 sunburst guitar with Humbucker pickups. I have owned several jazz guitars over the last 40 years, and the Monarch 16 Sunburst with humbucker pick ups is the best. None of them have matched the quality or tone of this one. […]

Joe F. Eastman Jazz 16

Lou, Just wanted to thank you again for your patience and help.  The Jazz 16 is a great guitar, fell in love with it when I opened the case.  That love was reinforced when I played it.  Plays smooth, easy on the fingers. I would get hand fatigue on my other guitars, not this one. […]

Timothy T. – Eastman Jazz Elite

Louis, I got the guitar today. Awesome! I love it. This guitar plays and sounds BETTER than a laminate Buscarino I had a few years back, which cost more than three times I paid for this guitar. Sincerely, Timothy T.

Jeff V. JazzKat TomKat

Lou, I just wanted to thank you for helping me to choose the coolest, best sounding amp I have owned. I was a die hard tube guy playing low wattage Fenders (Princetons, Champs etc), but after receiving my JazzKat Tomkat I’m a convert. This amp sounds more tube-like than my tube amps… Fat tone, very […]

Michael H. Eastman El Rey

Vince and Lou, Thanks so much for all your help and patience this afternoon. I was not sure where I wanted to go, arch top wise, but when you led me to the Eastman El Rey we found a perfect match! I’ve been playing all afternoon and it sounds amazing through my gear. I also […]
