Eastman

Eastman guitars and mandolins came as the result of a passion for high quality string instruments inherited from our internationally recognized fine violin line. Eastman offers musicians an opportunity to enjoy instruments produced by expert craftspeople entirely by hand using the best possible tonewoods, and time tested carving/building techniques.
