News: Eastwood Guitars introduces the new Wandre Tri-Lam

Eastwood Guitars introduces the new Wandre Tri-Lam
2012 promises to be a major year of new product launches for Eastwood Guitars, starting with the introduction of the new ultra cool Wandre Tri-Lam. Based on the extremely rare 1960s’ Wandre Tri-Lam, the guitar is a beautiful combination of art and function.
Eastwood’s 24 ¾” scale Wandre Tri-Lam features a full hollow body design with maple top, back and sides. The two distinctive and stylish grilled f-holes give the guitar a look like no other, and like the original the Tri-Lam it features the unique suspended pickguard which houses the pickup and volume control. This guitar features a bound maple set neck (instead of the aluminum from the 60s) and has a rosewood fingerboard with dot markers. The Tri-Lam is equipped with a New York Mini Humbucker, floating Tune-O-Matic Bridge, Grover Style tuners and a custom chrome tailpiece. Available in a blue or red, the Wandre Tri-Lam is guaranteed to turn some heads.
“Wandre guitars are amazing and rare pieces of musical art. Most originals are selling for thousands of dollars these days" said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "Our goal is to continue to make these crazy 60s’ style guitars available and affordable for guitar players everywhere.”
The Eastwood Wandre Tri-Lam is available now, to find your closest dealer visit

Laurie Buchanan: Wonderful Slippery Thing

Laurie Buchanan:

Haven't done a video in absolutely ages! In that amount of time I've moved house, turned 17 and gained 2 new guitars. I've been working on this song for ages now, and have pretty much hit a brick wall on the parts after what I've learned. Hence, I've only record the first of this amazing song haha.

This Guitar is a Yamaha Pacifica 112 I believe, it's my Grandad's old guitar and I was given it recently. So I decided to check it out. He liked blues and jazz so I thought I'd make him proud and do something a little different today :)

I suppose I've done my own little rendition of it as tonally it doesn't sound like the original. But I quite like how it's came out with using alot more distortion :)

It's not 100%, I'd need another million years to actually get this right! And the ending is just totally made up on the spot haha, didn't quite know what to do there xD

The Fusion Has LandedLast week we gave you a sneak peek of the brand new Martin Miller package, by showing you the full length version of 'Rock The Funk'. The video has already had over 10,000 views....incredible! And the reason? Well, we think it is because Martin is one of the most exciting young fusion players around at the moment. With this in mind, we are proud to have him join the JTC artist roster and we can now announce his debut package has officially launched.
Martin Miller Fusion Series 1 contains three outstanding rock/fusion tracks and comes with solo tracks, extended jam tracks, full length hi-res videos of each track being played by Martin and, of course, completely accurate TAB. Martin has even provided some notes on each track, designed to help your improvisations too.
Have you noticed our new slogan...'the no.1 in guitar improvisation'? Well, Martin really sums this up. He tackles these three original jam tracks with mind blowing improvised runs. To check out the promo for all three of the tracks in the package, then click here.

Eddie Van Halen: Music kept me off the streets and out of trouble

Eddie Van Halen donated 75 electric guitars from his personal collection to the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports music education in public schools across the country.

Eddie Van Halen: “Music is the universal language," said Eddie Van Halen. "It has the ability to transcend and convey every human emotion that exists without saying a word. Music kept me off the streets and out of trouble and gave me something that was mine that no one could take away from me. Music education and families are dealing with the economic times, and I wanted to help them. If I can help a kid discover a liking, or even a passion for music in their life, then that's a wonderful thing. Music has provided a good life for me and hopefully it can help make life better for others with this donation."
