Eastman AR580CE-BLU Spruce/Maple Archtop Electric #16550031

Thinking of going blue? Jump on in, the water’s fine!

What We Think

The AR580 is really one of the best deals in jazz guitar. Not only does it deliver everything a demanding jazz musician needs for a guitar that’s going to deliver night after night, but it’s also not afraid of being flamboyant! Patterned after the famous “blue guitar” Smithsonian exhibit instruments, this jazzbox has all the looks and soul of those instrumets without the comically large price tag. Plugged into a Henriksen JazzAmp, this thing also purrs! Great tone with a lot of room for shaping with the tone knob, no serious jazzer would be disappointed with this thing.
