Eastman handcrafted acoustic guitars cover a wide range of playing styles and sound. The Traditional Series (model names beginning with E) bring back memories of the great instruments of the Golden Era of guitar building. Those were days when all the work was done by gifted craftspeople, by hand using simple tools.
All Eastman acoustic guitars share that heritage. Eastman acoustics provide many choices of body styles and fine woods; perfect for many contemporary applications. These are heirloom-quality instruments which may be enjoyed by future generations of musicians.
Eastman Grand Auditorium acoustics feature a warm, balanced tone, with sound projection suitable for ensemble playing. They perform well for fingerpicking, flat picking and accompaniment.
The modern profile of the Grand Auditorium represents the best of both worlds for flat-pickers and fingerstylists. The Grand Auditorium is a true hybrid that has many of the attributes of smaller bodies with the volume, punch and bass of a dreadnought without sacrificing anything.
