Always wanted a Gibson style jazz guitar but can’t afford to shell out $2,000 or more? I know, I’ve been there – that’s why I love this guitar but I’m hoping you’ll love it more!
I bought this Eastman AR 371CE. The model code meaning AR as in “archtop” and 371 being a reverse of the Gibson ES-137 archtop it is patterned on.
This is a 2013 model. I’ve had it about as long. There is some slight belt rash on the back but the rest of the guitar is in excellent condition. I currently have LaBella Black Nylon Coated Jazz Tape strings on it to add a smoother, warmer tone. The locking case has a small hit (see the photo) but beyond that is in very good condition.
The guitar comes with the case candy which includes a certificate for the date of creation, serial number, a truss rod Allen Wrench, and a key for the case lock.
Any questions? Let me know.
