Unique Eastman color and original Ken Armstrong pickup. What more could you ask for?
Eastman guitars are among the best on the market for their price. The Eastman Uptown AR803 stands strong with the best of them from custom shop Gibson L-5’s to rare vintage D’Angelico New Yorker’s. . This guitar looks, feels, and sounds easily as if it were a much more expensive instrument.
– Incredible construction quality – it’s obvious when you pick up the guitar
– Deep ebony fretboard
– Unique orange-stain blonde finish
– Completely hand-carved solid wood (unlike Gibson, which uses a laminate process)
– Gotoh tuners
– Real Bone nut
– Flamed maple back and sides
– Awesome Eastman composite hard-case
Their are a couple of marks on the back as shown in the pictures but that is the only issue with this guitar.
One of the best playing, looking, and sounding archtops I’ve ever seen or played.
Ships with original hard shell case.
