Okay, what's the big idea? Where's the rest of this guitar? I can HEAR it, but all I can SEE is this little Parlor fella'. It's so svelte. So portable. Perfect for wooing...but where's the rest of it? What's making it sound so huge? So full? So rich? Must be the wood. This one's a winner. Seriously.
The Eastman Traditional Series is inspired by the great flattops of the Golden Era. While modern production gradually drifts further from the discipline that created this legacy, Eastman embraces it. The result is a brilliant tribute to the iconic guitars of the 30's and 40's.
