The Uptown series of guitars put Eastman on the archtop map. Gotoh tuners with ebony buttons, gold Kent Armstrong pickups with adjustable pole pieces, and volume and tone controls are standard on Uptown guitars. Each guitar is handcrafted of solid spruce and flamed maple. Uptown guitars are available in classic, sunburst, and classic/sunburst finishes. Blonde guitars are available at a 20% upcharge. Hardshell case included.
The Eastman 803 series was designed for the giging guitarist that needs flexibility, clarity and fullness. The 803 series features a hand carved spruce top with a hand carved ample back and solid maple sides. This series is available in a 15″ lower bout series and a 16″ lower bout series. You may select a single pickup X braced model which has a slightly more acoutic tone and perhaps just a light more responsiveness. Or a double pickup model featuring parallel bracing and a darker Jazz tone reminescent of “Kenny Burrell” like tone. The two pickup model is more feedback resistant, has more cutting power due to the additional bridge pickup and much more flexibility for all types of music. Look no further, because Eastman has a fine handcrafted guitar that is just perfect for your needs, and Guitars ‘n Jazz always has a large selection of each and every model in almost any color.
