Eastman AR910CE Archtop Jazz Guitar 2007 Blonde

$ 2300.00

A stunning, near mint 2007
Eastman AR910CE Acoustic-Electric Archtop Guitar. The AR910CE was Eastman’s
top-of-the-line acoustic-electric archtop; it has since been discontinued. This
guitar was manufactured in Beijing, China, in 2007. I was not enthusiastic at first about a Chinese-made guitar, but as I played it and then plugged it in I was blown
away by the extraordinarily good build quality, tone, and playability. I am now a real
fan of these superb Chinese-made Eastman archtops. 

This is a perfect guitar for playing jazz, especially if the jazz tone you’re after is a rich, warm, woody acoustic tone. 

This instrument has NEVER
been played in public. In fact, it has never been out of my home and is in near
mint condition. There are a few small dings, abrasions, and
weather checking finish cracks on the guitar; all of these are shown in the
photos. In particular, there is a concentration of “buckle rash” abrasions
in the center of the back, also shown clearly in the photos. (The sturdy, protective case, by contrast, has been kept in storage and shows a bit of superficial wear and tear; see the photos.)

Despite the handful of
superficial abrasions you are getting essentially a new guitar.

These sell new for $4,599.
