Premium tonewoods and meticulous craftsmanship form a harmonious relationship that has made Eastman's name in the archtop guitar market. The choice of woods and the time honored processes followed to craft these guitars create an organically acoustic tone that is unrivaled. Chords are full and complex while single notes are crisp and well defined. Custom Kent Armstrong pickups compliment the sound of the wood and deliver a smooth balanced tone. The gold and ebony fittings provide form and function and the traditional finish is as beautiful as it is functional.
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.
