Tobias Music - Chicago Area’s Finest Guitars
Proud Dealer of Eastman Guitars for the past 20 Years
Eastman AR503ce Classic. Handmade by the master luthiers at Eastman Guitars. Fans of traditional or modern jazz will feel right at home with our handcrafted take on archtop guitars. We’ve brought classic designs to life and into the hands of legendary players like John Pisano and Frank Vignola.
Premium tonewoods and meticulous craftsmanship form a harmonious relationship that made Eastman’s name in the Jazz guitar world. The choice of tonewoods and the time honored processes followed to craft these guitars create an organically acoustic tone that is seldom matched. Chords are full and complex while single notes are crisp and well defined. If you’re looking to serve up smooth jazz tones with a side of funky soul, Eastman’s modern archtop designs are right up your alley.
As far as great combinations go, it doesn’t get much better than the pairing of increased acoustic sustain and tight, focused, amplified sound that the solid wood top and laminate back & sides make possible.
