This Eastman AR603CED-15-CS Archtop Electric Guitar w/ Hardshell Case has never been owned and is an in-store demo model with a couple of very minor finish imperfections. A couple of very minor, barely visible anomalies under the finish can be seen at the upper bass side bout and the cutaway, but these imperfections are cosmetic in nature only and do not affect the functionality of this wonderful instrument! Looks, plays and sounds fantastic! We ask that you observe its pictures closely and invite you to contact us with any questions you may have.
The Jazz Guitar
Premium tonewoods and meticulous craftsmanship form a harmonious relationship that made Eastman’s name in the Jazz guitar world. The choice of tonewoods and the time honored processes followed to craft these guitars create an organically acoustic tone that is seldom matched. Chords are full and complex while single notes are crisp and well defined.
Once considered to primarily be a jazz guitar, the elegant and timeless archtop has since crossed over into many genres and playing styles. How will you use yours? The possibilities are endless.
Fans of traditional or modern jazz will feel right at home with our handcrafted take on archtop guitars. We’ve brought classic designs to life and into the hands of legendary players like John Pisano and Frank Vignola. Bop through the Real Book, chunk out rhythms behind the band, and bask in tonal warmth.
Smooth and Funky
If you’re looking to serve up smooth jazz tones with a side of funky soul, Eastman’s modern archtop designs are right up your alley.
More wood, more sound. Our solid wood archtops create a deep resonance and inviting warmth that makes them irresistible to jazzers of all backgrounds and styles.
