Eastman skills in hand-carving tops and backs are apparent in the selection of our archtop guitars. The result: some of the most coveted and beloved archtop guitars anywhere. By sourcing premium tone woods and putting them in the hands of luthiers dedicated to producing guitars via the time-honored process of hand-crafting fine instruments, Eastman has in fact become nothing less than the major force in archtop guitars. We are proud to offer the broadest range of traditional and contemporary premium archtops available today.
The passion evident in John’s playing extends to his attention to detail for the instruments that bear his name.
