What We Think

We are pretty amazed at the quality of the Eastman Flattop guitars. They are the only luthiers that we know of producing all solid wood, handmade guitars in this price range. They perform like instruments that cost twice as much. You don't expect wood binding on a guitar that sells in the $1000 price range, do you???!!! The quality of the woods is impeccable and their finish work caps off what are consistently gorgeous instruments.

Eastman AC720 Acoustic Guitar Demo

The Eastman AC720 Acoustic Guitar is guaranteed to impress- with a great punch, and a crisp and articulate tone, there is no guitar in this price range that can compete. It is probably the best value on the high end acoustic market today, and a great addition to any guitar collection or studio. Featuring a lovely Engelmann Spruce top and solid rosewood for the back and sides. The instrument was recorded inside the Sound Pure studio live room with a fantastic pair of Telefunken AR51 microphones. The AR 51 is Telefunken's RFT version of their famous and well known Telefunken ELA M 251 Tube Microphone. We recorded through a Great River MP2NV pre amp. Sound Pure uses and sells all the gear that we represent from this fine acoustic guitar (available from our Guitar Boutique), to the fine microphones and the fine mic preamp that we used to create these recordings. - our Sound Pure sales team is always available to answer your questions, and can be reached toll free at 888-528-9703.

About Manufacturer

Eastman Strings began in 1992, but its roots date back centuries to the violin and bow makers of the 1800s. By this time, violin and string instrument builders had streamlined their process enough by hiring specialized woodworkers who would assist them in the most time consuming tasks that there were plenty of quality, affordable handmade instruments. During World War II, many of the premier instrument makers had their towns and workshops destroyed, and some were even killed in the violence. Traditions that had been handed down for centuries from master instrument makers were all but lost, and the process of building by hand was replaced by large-scale manufacturing. After the war, the majority of instrument production had been mechanized, and in order for musicians to find decent instruments they would have to save enormous amounts of money for older, handmade instruments. Eastman Strings is returning to the traditions of the great string instrument builders of the past, and is bringing handmade instruments to musicians around the world at affordable prices. 

Eastman Guitars are fine handmade instruments at very reasonable prices. Their archtops and flat tops are made with solid, hand-carved tops, backs, and sides. They offer many of the traditional archtop styles in their Uptown series with options of different woods, dimensions, and pickups. The Thinline series, the El Rey and the Jon Pisano signature line offer some great alternatives, and feature the same kinds of customizable options. Eastman Uptown Deluxe series archtops are custom shop pieces with select AAA grade tone woods, wood binding with inlaid purfilng, and five piece necks.

For the flat top player, Eastman offers many different options in grand concert, orchestra model, grand auditorium, mini jumbo, dreadnought, and jumbo shapes. With these there are many different configurations of Sitka, Adirondack, and Englemann Spruce tops, as well as Mahogany, Rosewood, and Maple back and sides.  Between all of these quality handmade instruments we are confident that there is an Eastman guitar out there for any discerning musician. We also carry Eastman mandolins! 

With so many options, and with such reasonable pricing, it is no secret why we love Eastman guitars here at Sound Pure. We carry one of the largest inventories of Eastman guitars in the US. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable on the entire Eastman line. If you cannot find the Eastman guitar you are looking for in our vast inventory, we are happy to assist in a special order.
