***EASTMAN NO LONGER MAKES THE AR905CE WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL CLASSIC FINISH - THIS IS THE LAST ONE WITH THIS RARE FINISH!***
Eastman Uptown professional archtop guitars are each carved entirely by hand. The solid maple back and sides and solid aged spruce top are complimented by a 3-piece maple neck with a solid ebony fingerboard. All Eastman guitars feature X-style bracing. Heavy-duty tuners, a classically designed tailpiece, and a J.W. Eastman fiberglass case all come standard. Designed with the serious Jazz musician in mind, the Uptown 905 is everything a 16" hand-carved archtop guitar should be.
Our luthiers are renown world-wide for the quality of their hand-applied spirit varnish. Drawing on generations of expertise gained in the world of violins, Eastman has perfected a finish that enhances both the beauty and tone of the instrument. To create this handsome finish, our luthiers use spirit varnish and finish with two coats of lacquer. The lacquer is then buffed back almost to the spirit varnish leaving the protection of lacquer and the luster of spirit varnish.

Eastman AR905CE Archtop
The Eastman AR905CE Archtop I purchased is a gorgeous instrument. I'm grateful to Michael for his knowledge, well-curated selection of guitars, and impeccable customer service. I appreciate that he managed the pickup upgrade and got the guitar delivered earlier than expected in pristine condition. I know it's one I will enjoy for many years to come. Thank you Michael and DjangoBooks!
