Eastman AR580CE Hollowbody Archtop Guitar, Honeyburst

Sitka Spruce Top, Flame Maple Back and Sides, Ebony Fretboard, Seymour Duncan Pickup

Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this beautiful AR580CE from our friends over at Eastman. We continue to be blown away by the build quality and the level of the components found in Eastman guitars. These days, for this sort of boutique feel and top of the line components, you're usually going to be looking at an archtop that's well over $2k potentially. It's no exaggeration to say this guitar can hang in there with custom shop offerings from a lot of other manufacturers.

Whether you're using rounds or flatwound strings on this, it's an absolutely fantastic jazz box that not only feels incredible, but it looks absolutely beautiful. The glossy honeyburst finish looks beautiful over the spruce top and the flame maple back and sides. The neck is super comfortable and the fretwork allows for nice and low action for those that prefer a lighter touch on the instrument. The Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup in the neck is wonderfully warm and puts out a nice full tone.

It's clear Eastman are building guitars for the most discerning of players, but they're also making them accessible for those that need a pro-quality instrument without having to cross into that $2k+ territory.
