Eastman DM2

Eastman DM2

Eastman Quality Comes to Gypsy Jazz

Eastman has long been admired for their premium quality archtop and flatop guitars. After a very long wait, we're excited to announce that Eastman now has a Gypsy model that meets their exceedingly high standards! Designed and produced in conjunction with the veteran Gypsy guitarist Doug Martin, the DM2 is largely based on Selmer's classic petite bouche model that was made famous in the hands of Django Reinhardt. The specs of the DM2 closely mirror that of Selmer's original design, including the 15 3/4" body, 670mm scale length, spruce top, walnut neck, and Indian rosewood back and sides. Additionally, the instrument is outfitted with a set of nickel Gotoh tuners and a nickel tailpiece. The DM2 features Eastman's stunning antique finish!

The DM2 is a Powerful Instrument with Professional Capabilities

Developed to meet the needs of the professional Gypsy jazz musician, this instrument produces the exceptional volume and traditional tone that are required for the genre. The acoustic volume this instrument produces is particularly noteworthy, as it is easily the loudest instrument available in the sub $2000 price range. Tonally, the Englemann spruce top and very light antique finish produce a warmer, more balanced tone than the DM1. Rich, yet powerful, the DM2 evokes the tonal subtleties of some of the best vintage Selmers!

As one would expect from Eastman, this instrument is perfectly setup out of the box and plays easily with 3mm action. The fit and finish is characteristically meticulous as Eastman's QC team carefully weeds out instruments with even the smallest imperfections.

Clearance for Magnetic Pickups

For those who like to use magnetic pickups such as the Stimer or Peche a la Mouche, you'll be happy to know that the DM2 has a significant neck angle which provides the required top clearance for these types of pickups. Occasionally, the very highest frets may fret out, but for the most part this guitar is compatible with top mounted magnetic pickups, a rarity in this price range.

A hardshell case is included.

Never before has such a quality Gypsy jazz guitar been available at such an affordable price!
