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 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.
The iconic shape of the Dreadnought is synonymous with acoustic guitars in general. Big and bold, these cannons are perfect for ensemble settings where the guitar competes for sonic space with other instruments or accompanying strong singers. The Dreadnought is the classic flat-picking bluegrass instrument.
