Guitars & Amps was founded by Matthijs Gaspar and René Rutten, both seasoned and passionate guitar players. Together we have a history of over 30 years in the music industry: 13 years in the musical instrument retail, wholesale and import business (Matthijs) and 18 years as performing artist (The Gathering), producer and record label owner (René). Thanks to this long experience we know the back and front of the industry, so we can provide you with detailed information and expert technical advice. We understand the needs, wants and problems of guitar players, also when it comes to live performances, tours, recordings etc. From one guitar player to another, we promise you quality, know-how, honest advice and value for money. Come and see for yourself: one handshake is worth a thousand words!
Here is my son Troy standing out front of the famous Rudy’s Guitar Stop on 48th Street. Rudy has built one of the most beautiful guitar stores on the planet. You must go there! Here we pose in front of one of his displays, this one dedicated to Eastwood Guitars.
For the first time since we started Eastwood Guitars in 2002, we will be exhibiting at the NAMM show in Anaheim California. For those who don’t know, NAMM is the National Assc. of Music Makers. This trade show is a once a year event where music industry people meet to share their knowledge and check out “what’s new” in the world of music.
While Mac and Joe ogled the frankly boring mid-’70s LP, I was ogling one of the most gorgeous guitars I’d ever seen. Later I found out it was a 1983 Electra Endorser X934CS. A set-in neck with no heel. Mahogany with a carved maple cap that had flame so deep you got high staring at it. Finished in cherry sunburst, my favorite.
