Eastman AR380CE-HB Pisano Signature Archtop

Eastman AR380CE-HB Pisano Signature Archtop
John Pisano has a storied career which includes performing and recording with numerous jazz legends (i.e. Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Joe Pass, Dianna Krall, etc.) Born in New York, John was steeped in jazz guitar tradition from an early age: he inherited an Epiphone from his father and later befriended numerous jazz guitar luminaries such as Lenny Bereau, Chuck Wayne, and Jim Hall. When John designed the Pisano series of guitars for Eastman, he was able to draw upon decades of experience as a player as well as a deep knowledge of archtop guitar construction which he gleaned from his association with Bob Benedetto, John Monteleone, and John D'Angelico. The result is an affordable instrument that incorporates the finest materials and lutherie know-how into a guitar that is both sonically satisfying and visually stunning.

The AR380CE-HB features a laminate maple top; laminate maple back and sides, a mahogany neck; and an ebony fingerboard. The body is very comfortable, with a 16" lower bout and 2 3/4" depth and the scale length is an easy playing 24 3/4". The nut width is 1 3/4". Both functional and stylish, the AR380CE-HB is outfitted with an attractive cello style tailpiece, Gotoh tuners with ebony buttons, wood volume and tone knobs, an ebony pickguard, and an ebony, magnetically fastened truss rod cover. The overall style of the instrument is reminiscent of the understated, "clean" look pioneered by the great Jimmy D'Aquisto and later developed by Bob Benedetto. In an effort to keep embellishments to a minimum, the fingerboard is free of positioning dots (there are still side dots) and the headstock is free of any ornamentation.

The twin, mounted Kent Armstrong humbuckers are capable of producing a wide variety of sounds, ranging from full, dark jazz tones to more cutting and gritty fusion sounds.

Not long ago, a guitar of this quality would cost a musician a year's salary. We can all thank John Pisano and the Eastman team for producing a premium instrument at a players price!
