Hand crafted by a small team of luthiers, Eastman Guitars deliver incredible quality at a much lower price point than their comparable rival brands.
Drawing inspiration from the classic jazz guitars of the '50s, the Eastman AR503CE/v features a Carved Spruce top and Laminate Flamed Maple back and sides for a lightweight but sonically rich tone. With the famed Eastman Antique Varnish finish the wood is able to breathe freely, delivering a naturally resonant and organic sound. This labour intensive process produces a finish even thinner than lacquer for the best tonal response.. The slick Venetian body shape would easily be at home on stage in a smoky jazz bar!
The 3 piece Maple neck has a sweet Ebony fingerboard that benefits from 20 Jescar frets, a 25" scale length and 12" radius. It has a real vintage vibe and feels smooth, comfortable and familiar.
Loaded with a Kent Armstrong HPAG-1 pickup, the Eastman AR503CE has a rich tonal range perfect for a wide variety of styles. Super smooth and with great sustain it's a real masterpiece.
With a hardshell case included the Eastman range represents incredible value for money.
