This guitar sounds as good as it looks, and that’s saying something! The pale Engelmann Spruce top is very responsive and full of overtones. There’s this warm, gentle push in the bass and a wide open harmonic firehouse in the treble. It’s the kind of guitar that you could spend days on just strumming open chords. The beautifully colored, tight-grained rosewood back and sides reflect all the right sonic details, giving it a clean, pre-mixed sound that amplifies seamlessly.
The appointments are gorgeous. It’s fully bound in maple with an abalone top border, the tuners are gold Gotohs with ebony buttons, and the headstock has a lovely rosewood veneer. What more could you ask?
Bearing the needs of a modern guitarist in mind, this Eastman features a smooth Venetian cutaway and a great pickup system. You’ll be ready for rhythm or lead on the stage or in the living room! This is the top of the line as far as Eastman’s modern flat-tops go, so definitely give it a pick if you get the chance. You may end up taking it home.
