Introducing the revolutionary first generation of E1 models with the remarkable Truetone Gloss finish, a game-changer for the prestigious E1 range. Departing from its traditional satin finish with open-pore back and sides, this guitar showcases the epitome of elegance and sophistication. Prepare to be captivated by the exquisite Quilted Sapele back and sides, intricately complemented by a Thermo-Cured Sitka spruce top, resulting in a harmonious blend of projection and warmth that will leave you craving more.

One glance at this masterpiece and you'll notice the new Herringbone rosette and the captivating 12th fret North Star inlay, guiding you towards both visual and tonal fulfilment. Crafted entirely from solid materials, this exceptional instrument boasts a thermo-cured (baked) top, along with tasteful tortoiseshell binding that exudes a touch of refined luxury.

For years, the brilliant minds at Eastman have yearned to achieve the vintage aesthetic of aged acoustic guitar tops, and their relentless pursuit has finally paid off. Through a meticulous process of torrefaction, the tops of these guitars are transformed into timeless pieces reminiscent of pre-war classics, ensuring an unmatched level of craftsmanship and historical significance.

The E1D-Special model embraces excellence from head to toe, featuring a sturdy Mahogany neck, an Ebony fingerboard with a comfortable 12" radius, and a traditional even "C" neck profile that guarantees an exceptional playing experience. With a bone nut measuring 1.75" (44.4mm) and 20 Jescar-FW43080 fretwire, every note you play will resonate with unmatched clarity and precision.

Designed to impress, the E1D-Special embodies the perfect balance of form and function. Its body dimensions of 16" X 4-23/32" offer a comfortable yet commanding presence, while the hand-scalloped X bracings enhance the guitar's resonance and responsiveness to your touch. The solid Thermo-Cured Sitka Spruce top harmonises flawlessly with the solid Quilted Sapele back and sides, producing a tonal palette that is both versatile and soul-stirring.

Every detail has been thoughtfully considered, down to the ebony bridge with a bone saddle, boasting a spacing of 2 5/32". The exquisite Herringbone rosette serves as a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail, while the dual-acting truss rod ensures optimal playability and stability throughout the instrument's lifetime.

Aesthetically, the E1D-Special is a sight to behold, with top and back binding adorned in tortoiseshell, a stunning pearl headstock logo, and elegant pearl dot inlays. The white side dot colour adds a touch of sophistication to its visual appeal, while the ebony bridge pins and tortoiseshell pickguard contribute to its overall aura of refined elegance.

Equipped with open-gear 3+3 tuners, this guitar guarantees effortless tuning precision, allowing you to focus on your performance without any distractions. The strings of choice are none other than D'Addario XT Phosphor Bronze, offering a balanced and articulate sound that will please even the most discerning musicians.

Achieving the perfect action height is made effortless, thanks to our talented in-house techs. You'll experience optimal comfort and playability, allowing you to effortlessly explore the instrument's full potential.
