This guitar sounds incredible acoustically and I had been eyeing it for some time now... but, with the idea of converting it. I'm coming from 10 years on a Gitane and have been craving a more refined (and less buzzy) acoustic archtop sound.

Eastman AR905CE-BD Archtop

The AR905CE-BD 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 900 series instruments are Eastman's flagship models. Carefully designed and beautifully constructed, the 900 series models are built using the best tone woods and hardware available. The AR905CE-BD features a hand carved, X braced top made of well aged spruce, flamed solid 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 ebony fingerboard, Gotoh tuners, and nitrocellulose finish give the instrument a sophisticated, timeless appearance. The floating Lollar Johnny Smith pickup allows the top to resonate acoustically while producing a natural, clean amplified tone.


Highly versatile and easily playable, the AR905CE-BD will meet the needs of any jazz guitarist

This model is an excellent choice for players who seek an instrument that is truly electro-acoustic. The AR905CE-BD is full and resonant when played acoustically and warm and round when plugged in. The comfortable 16" body sits effortlessly in your lap while the short 25" scale allows one to easily execute complex chords and difficult passages.. 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.

Whether it's blazing bebop leads, fingerstyle ballads, or crunchy swing rhythm, this instrument can do it all! Come and experience the magic of Eastman's flagship model yourself...

Eastman AR905CE-BD (Conversion)

This guitar sounds incredible acoustically and I had been eyeing it for some time now... but, with the idea of converting it. I'm coming from 10 years on a Gitane and have been craving a more refined (and less buzzy) acoustic archtop sound. Michael worked (patiently) with me on customizing it to my needs and it came out beautifully. The build quality is outstanding - I've never owned such a nice instrument. And, the speed and feel of the neck seems like cheating! Thank you Michael!
