Engelmann Spruce top!
This AC812 has beautiful overtones and a warm, but clear voice. Playing it feels almost effortless, and every movement on the part of the player is matched with full, dynamic sound from the guitar. The guitar sustains quite well and the action is very low, which really puts me at ease when I pick this one up. I love the dynamic sensitivity and smooth character of the Engelmann Spruce top as well.
The 8-series has been discontinued. The 8-series were, and remain, the highest quality acoustic guitars made by Eastman. We are not sure why they decided to discontinue, but our best guess is that they ran out of Engelmann Spruce at a good price! Sound Pure is happy to provide some of the last remaining 8-series guitars at deals below what you would have paid when they first came out.
