"As a 12 year old, I was blown away by the exotic designs of Wandré, Hopf, and Teisco. They embodied the electrical essence of rock n' roll. Magically, my Eastwood Guitars remind me of just how I felt outside a music shop back in the early '60's, and confirm just why I fell in love with electric guitars in the first place." _Bill Nelson
After spending the '80s as an unappreciated jangle pop guitarist with Oh-OK and Lloyd Cole, as well as a solo artist, Matthew Sweet emerged in 1991 as the leading figure of the American power pop revival.
Like his British counterparts Teenage Fanclub, Sweet adhered to traditional songcraft, yet subverted the form by adding noisy post-punk guitar and flourishes of country-rock, resulting in an amalgam of the Beatles, Big Star, R.E.M., and Neil Young.
