Premium tonewoods and meticulous craftsmanship form a harmonious relationship that has made Eastman's name in the archtop guitar market. The choice of woods and the time honored processes followed to craft these guitars create an organically acoustic tone that is unrivaled. Chords are full and complex while single notes are crisp and well defined. The gold and ebony fittings provide form and function and the traditional finish is as beautiful as it is functional.
purely acoustic model pays homage to the legendary archtop guitars of
the pre-war era (i.e. Lloyd Loar Gibson L5, Epiphone Emperor, Stromberg
Master 400, etc.) Light weight and resonant, this all acoustic model
will blow the doors off any acoustic jam without amplification of any
kind. It's the perfect guitar for swing, Gypsy jazz, fingerstyle jazz,
or any genre which requires the rich and satisfying tone of an exquisitely
built acoustic guitar.
Uptown series of guitars put Eastman on the archtop map. Gotoh tuners
with ebony buttons are standard on Uptown guitars. Each guitar is
handcrafted of solid spruce and flamed maple.
