Making instruments for a large variety of artists in a wide range of genres is a labor of love. Nothing makes us happier than seeing our favorite artists enjoying our instruments as much as we do.

Peter Stroud has been Sheryl Crow’s guitarist for approaching 20 years and currently serves as her music director. He has also played with Don Henley, Sarah McLachlan, Pete Droge, Big Hat (his own band) and co-founded 65amps, one of the leading boutique amp builders born during the 18-watt craze. “My T58 feels and sounds as vintage as any other old guitar I’ve ever used.” You can catch Peter playing his Eastman on tour this summer.
The list of artists Jonathan Wilson has worked with as both a sideman and producer reads like a who’s who list of some of the most legendary musicians of the past five decades.
