    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 L1 is the perfect starter instrument for the complete rock musician. This legendary-shaped guitar is known as one of the most versatile instruments ever created. Perfect for a guitarist who is up for playing anything and everything. 


    The L1 has two humbucker pickups - the parts of the guitar that take the sound of the strings and directs it into an amp. These produce a gritty, warm tone suited to playing both rhythm and lead guitar.

    The four dials on the right-hand side of the body let you change the tone and volume. You can experiment away with the sound and never get bored of picking it up to play.

    You can get right up the neck for screaming high notes thanks to 22 frets. These are the thin metal bars across the fingerboard. The more you have, the more notes you can play. That's why the L1 is brilliant for either soulful solos or chugging low notes.

    Almost every famous guitarist has owned a single-cutaway guitar like the L1. The classic shape is compact enough to play standing or seated, while the cut in the body of the guitar allows your left hand to reach the highest frets comfortably.

    Mr Peter Negenborn17th Apr 2022

    Very impressed with looks, quality and playability of the guitar. The guitar surpassed my expectations of such a competitively priced guitar and is far better than more costly guitars. East Coast have certainly come up with a winning formula for this Les Paul and the Gold top makes it look classy. The tonal quality is also very good and classic Les Paul sounds are available on this instrument.

    How do East Coast do it at this price point?? Unbelievable quality and workmanship on a par with many more expensive brands. Were I to be picky, the bridge pickup is slightly misaligned on mine, but that would be nit picking to the nth degree, I would say that the pickups are slightly brighter sounding than expected from this style of guitar, but they are wonderfully clear and articulate. The weight of mine was a comfortable 8.2lbs, slightly lighter than expected, but the whole package arrived beautifully set up and just feels perfect straight out of the box
