    Tag No 32-4254 Used
    #M133102, in natural, in “excellent” condition with original hard shell case.

    The guitar shows normal signs of light use and wear, including a very small amount of light impressions -- far less than one would anticipate seeing in a 19-year-old guitar. The sound is crispy, lyrical and flowing. This is a considerable beauty of an 18” behemoth (the moth that does not fly); it is, as well, a professional jazzer’s joy.

    Our Price is $3,499.00.

  8. Eastman Strings (used, 2004) AR810ce Uptown Archtop

    Eastman Strings (used, 2004) AR810ce Uptown Archtop

    Tag No 32-4221 Used
    #540, in Classic finish, “excellent” condition, with the original black hard shell case.

    The choice of woods and the time-honored processes followed to craft these guitars create an acoustic tone that is heralded in several countries. Chords are full and complex while single notes are crisp and well-defined. A Kent Armstrong pickup compliments the sound and delivers a smooth balanced tone. The gold and ebony fittings provide form and function and the traditional finish.   The Uptown series of guitars put Eastman on the archtop map, if they say so themselves, and if you can even find an archtop map.

    Our Price is $1,699.00.
