2012 Eastman AR503 CE – £999
SOLD Eastman have become a major player in the archtop world, and the AR503CE is the most sought after model from the whole family. It’s a hand built Nitro finished carved spruce top archtop, in a stunning tobacco sunburst, and it features Ebony fingerboard, bridge, pickguard and tailpiece, with gold hardwear. The tone is full, airy and complex, and the 16” body produces an incredibly well-rounded single note sound and lush overtones that make chords sing. The guitar is in very good condition, with just a few light nicks and dings. With a very comfortable feeling neck and easy action, this is a player’s dream. The guitar comes in a non original case.
