Premium tonewoods and the time honored process of meticulous hand craftsmanship form a harmonious relationship that has established Eastman as a major force in the world of archtop guitars. Today Eastman offers the widest selection of classic and contemporary archtop guitars in the industry. Most often associated with jazz, Eastman archtops are frequently used in many other styles of music due to their beautiful sound, range and finish. In this video we discuss the founding and the foundation of the flagship line from Eastman Guitars: Archtops.  Mark Hamill from Eastman Guitars joins us in the studio for a in depth lesson on how Eastman got started in making some of the best arch top guitars on the market. If you like what you hear, you can check out this gear at SoundPure.com or give us a call anytime at 919.682.5552. Thanks for watching!

Eastman really did an excellent job on the top of this archtop, it's rare you get an archtop with this much crispness and clarity while still retaining the understated and mellow cool the genre of guitar requires. Naturally, the guitar has amazing punchy acoustic tone with a nice high-end bite. This guitar would perform excellently in an acoustic setting, either in a swing ensemble or in an intimate no-mic gig. But it doesn't stop there, the Kent Armstrong pickup really gives you everything you want from a set pickup: a wide and delightful variety of jazz tones, from mellow to almost 335-like hot, all available with a roll of the tone knob. Classic ebony tailpiece and pickguard also add a nice level of stately aesthetic to this pro-level jazzbox.

This guitar was hand-selected by Eastman to be part of the special collection that represented them at the 2016 Winter NAMM show. 

Designed by renowned guitarist John Pisano. Carved spruce top, carved maple back and sides with ebony bridge, tailpiece, pickguard & fingerboard. Custom Kent Armstrong humbucker pickup.

Committed to a high standard of quality, Eastman Guitars use of premium tonewoods and fine appointments, alongside the talent and accomplishment of its designers, craftsmen, and company philosophy continues one of the most fascinating musical traditions the world has known.
