The AR-371 from Eastman Guitars is a classic archtop with a florentine cutaway, laminated maple top, back, and sides, as well as single mounted humbucking pickup. The 371 model archtop from Eastman is the perfect gigging archtop guitar. Since it has a laminate finish, the guitar performs much better at higher volumes and is less prone to feedback.

This is an excellent instrument for the gigging jazz guitarist. If you've ever played an archtop in a loud room or with a large ensemble, you've probably had problems with feedback at some point during a performance. The acoustic resonance of the instrument is what gives many archtops their airy, full sound--but it is also what gives most archtops the tendency to feedback, especially at higher volumes. Laminate instruments lack the acoustic properties of solid-wood guitars, but perform better in higher-volume situations--and this AR371 is a perfect example of this. The sound from the mounted humbucker is round and warm, and at low volumes combines with the acoustic sound of the guitar in a very natural way. When turned up, the sound remains warm and detailed, and can even push a low-wattage tube amp a little if so desired. The sound is reminiscent of many classic records from the 1950's and (under the right circumstances) the sparkle and grit of the pickup through the right amp can be the perfect halo for this guitar's naturally woody tone. 

The AR371's vintage look is sure to be a favorite with old-school jazz heads, but the versatility of an instrument like this makes it appealing for a wide variety of musical applications. This model has been highly anticipated by Sound Pure's staff and customers alike, so don't hesitate to call!
