Eastman Unveils the Juliet LA

Eastman Unveils the Juliet LA

Juliet LA has all the signatures of Eastman’s Juliet series; an original offset design by Eastman head designer, Otto D’Ambrosio, and a lightweight solid one-piece Okoume body that's sculpted for maximum comfort and playability.


The guitar’s Celestine Blue Truetone Gloss finish evokes the Los Angeles clear sky and looks georeous while riding classic surf tones with a pair of Seymour Duncan Radiator Phat Cat P-90s with gold foil covers. A Göldo Les Trem system pairs with a Göldo 3-Point Vario “moving” bridge, limiting top contact, and allowing for maximum articulation, sustain, and resonance. With Göldo K-line back locking tuners, Juliet LA stays in tune no matter how much a player bends its tone.

​“We couldn't let Romeo LA have all the fun,” said Otto D’Ambrosio, Eastman’s head designer of fretted instruments. “The Seymour Radiator P90s and the Göldo tremolo are a match made in guitar heaven.”

“The matching headstock in Celestine Blue came to me in a dream. It’s just so striking on Juliet, we had to do this version for LA,” said Pepijn ‘t Hart, Eastman‘s fretted international sales and product development manager.

The accomplished guitarist and teacher’s new record, like her lifestyle, is taut and exciting—no more, and certainly no less, than is needed.

Molly Miller, a self-described “high-energy person,” is fully charged by the crack of dawn. When Ischeduled our interview, she opted for the very first slot available—8:30 a.m.—just before her 10 a.m. tennis match!

Donner andThird Man Hardware’s $99, three-in-one analog distortion, phaser, and delay honors Jack White’s budget gear roots.

Compact. Light. Fun. Dirt cheap. Many cool sounds that make this pedal a viable option for traveling pros.

Phaser level control not much use below 1 o’clock. Repeats are bright for an analog delay. Greater range of low-gain sounds would be nice.

$99

A huge part of the early White Stripes mystique, sound, ethos, and identity was tied to guitars and amps that, at the time, you could luck into for cheap at a garage sale. These days, it’s harder to score a Crestwood Astral II, or Silvertone Twin Twelve with a part-time job in the ice cream shop. Back in the late ’90s, though, they were a source of raw, nasty sounds for less than a new, more generic guitar or amp.
