I would recommend Django.com without qualification. Michael and his team of techs did a great job of modifying the Eastman 805-SB I recently purchased. I had the Benedetto-style tail piece replaced and fret dots, a 30s-style pick guard (from Archtop.com), and strap buttons added. All of the work was done as asked, and it looks fabulous. The guitar plays great and resonates like nobody's business--really impressive. Unless you're willing to spend quite a bit on a vintage or luthier-built archtop,...

Eastman AR805-SB Acoustic Archtop

Eastman AR805-SB Acoustic Archtop

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. 

This 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.

The 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.

Eastman AR805-SB Acoustic Archtop

Unless you're willing to spend quite a bit on a vintage or luthier-built archtop, the Eastman 805 is probably the best all-acoustic alternative out there.
