This is the best guitar I have ever owned. I have been playing for 60 years and only play fingerstyle chord melody style. The articulation of the notes is superb. This model has a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pickup. After adjusting my modeling amp (fender Mustang GT40) to bring out the tonality I seek, this guitar sounds like melted butter. Easy to play.

Eastman AR503CE

Eastman AR503CE

The AR503CE is a fully capable modern jazz guitar

Eastman archtops have earned a reputation as some of the best sounding and playing jazz guitars available. Built using "old world" construction methods, each instrument is meticulously hand crafted out of the finest materials. The AR503CE features a hand carved, X braced top made of well aged spruce, laminate maple back and sides, and a three piece maple neck. Aesthetically, this instrument takes inspiration from the modern, "clean," cello inspired look of builders such as D'Aquisto and Benedetto. The wood cello style tailpiece, dotless rosewood fingerboard, Gotoh tuners, and nitrocellulose finish give the instrument a sophisticated, timeless appearance. The built-in Seymour Duncan Seth Loves humbucking pickup can produces a warm, clean, classic jazz tone.


Highly versatile and easily playable, the AR503CE is a superb electro-acoustic instrument

This model is an excellent choice for players seeking a stylish yet roadworthy instrument that can produce classic jazz tones at high volumes. The comfortable 16" body sits effortlessly in your lap while the built-in pickup will keep feedback at bay. This guitar comes setup with D'Addario 12 gauge roundwounds and fairly low, 2mm action. However, this instrument performs well with many types of setups, including traditional bebop (14 gauge flatwounds and very low action) and swing (higher action) setups. The solid top on this instrument produces a warmer, richer acoustic tone than laminate top models which results a more natural sound when played acoustic or electric.

Whether it's blazing bebop leads, fingerstyle ballads, or searing blues leads, this instrument can do it all! Come and experience the easy playability and tonal beauty of this highly versatile model yourself...

Eastman AR503CE

Pros: Great Sound - Gorgeous guitar

Cons: None

This is the best guitar I have ever owned. I have been playing for 60 years and only play fingerstyle chord melody style. The articulation of the notes is superb. This model has a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pickup. After adjusting my modeling amp (fender Mustang GT40) to bring out the tonality I seek, this guitar sounds like melted butter. Easy to play. I use D'Addario Flat Wound Jazz Strings. Since this amp has small speakers and does not do justice to the bass end, I supplement the amp with Bose speakers that supply very smooth bass. All in all, a great combination of guitar, amp, and supplemental speakers. Buying through Django Books could not have been easier. I received this guitar less than 24 hours after I ordered it. Michael explained his company policies and processed my order in minutes.
