    Justin Guitar

    Here's what YouTube guitar teacher JustinGuitar says about EastCoast Guitars

    "Having played a lot of budget instruments in recent months, I can confidently say that the EastCoast guitars are by far the best bang for buck I've tried. They all had a "low action" (which means the strings are easier to press down) which is perfect for beginners and means less finger pain and a lot more fun!"

    Product Description

    The EastCoast ST2 is the ultimate beginner guitar for almost any style of music. The iconic S-style axe was the second electric guitar ever produced and hundreds of brands have put their own twist on the classic design. 

    Sound

    The ST2 has one humbucker and two single-coil pickups - the parts of the guitar that take the sound of the strings and directs it into an amp. The humbucker, which is closest to the bridge of the guitar, produces a thick grunting tone best for rhythm playing. While the single-coils are best for crisp clean sounds and searing solo leads.

    There are loads of sounds to explore because you're able to switch between and interchange the pickup combinations. Perfect for players who want to play lots of styles of music. 

    You might be wondering what the protruding handle is coming out of the bridge. This tremolo or 'whammy' bar as it's commonly known, lets you change the note of the string without moving your left hand. You can get extremely creative with the tremolo. 

    Looks

    Almost every guitarist has played or owned an S-style guitar, be it one suited to blues, folk, jazz or metal. The double-cutaway makes it extremely easy to get your left hand up to the highest of the 22 frets. These are the thin metal bars across the fingerboard. The more you have, the more notes you can play.

    Great starter HSS Strat copy. Plays straight from the box. Frets all good, if a little shallow, neck relief bang on, even tuned before packaging. Chinese it may be, but I've played lesser Mexican models.

    Looks and feels great, sounds as you would expect. Only complaint is that one screw that, I assume, holds the string in place (specifically the low E) comes loose quite easily, though this could be my issue.

    Great value for money. Actually preferred the feel of the guitar to the Squires and the difference in sound was marginal. Great starter, would definitely recommend it.

    I'm no expert, so this isn't a review of the quality of the guitar and amp - both of which seem (to my untrained ear) to work fine. It's shy a star because there was a little scratching on the pickguard (not from previous use - more like storage/handling damage). Not enough to return or ask for anything off (though if it had been a more expensive guitar I might), but since I've been asked to review I think it's fair to mention.
