What do you think about Eastman Guitars?


Recommended Posts

They are very well made, sound beautiful and cost much less than the comparable models of North American-made guitars.

I've played a number of  different Eastman acoustics at the Twelfth Fret, a high end string music store here in Toronto.

In a direct sound comparison with a j-45,  I preferred the comparable Eastman slope-shouldered Spruce/ Mahogony model, which was selling for much less than the Gibson.

I played a couple of new ones in stores. They are very well made. I didn't like the string spacing personally. The ones I tried didn't sound as nice as the guitar I brought along to trade either. So I left the Eastmans at the store & took my Chinese Hofner back home.

That is not to dismiss Eastman though. My likes & dislikes are often driven by my poor technique! Why not try a couple?
