Solid Spruce top and Solid Maple back and sides!
Ships immediately after order processed!
The classic look of the sunburst finish is so gracefully applied to the sleek lines and clean design of this AR805CE that many people are shocked when they hear that this guitar is sold at its current price point. Eastman guitars are improving all of the time, and this piece looks and feels as good or better than any 805 we've had in the past. The spruce top boasts even, consistent grain and exhibits outstanding acoustic properties. The maple back and sides contribute gorgeous overtone content and natural reverberation to the tone that completes this guitar's complex, multi-dimensional sound. All of the natural figure of the wood is enhanced beautifully by the lighter portions of the burst finish, and the craftsmanship is on par with guitars that cost thousands more. This is an awful lot of guitar for the money and you would be hard pressed to find any hand-carved boutique archtop that even approaches this level of quality and value.
