|Comments||Eastman’s El Rey – “The King” – guitar is designed to deliver “classic jazz archtop tone in a lightweight, resonant 14 inch body”. Along the way, this design also has excellent feedback resistance at volume. Designed by Otto D’Ambrosio , the El Rey One features a carved spruce top, carved mahogany back, mahogany sides and a mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard. The design includes a patented neck joint, the “Neck Block Cutaway”, to provide strength and access without reducing tone. Read what Otto D’Ambrosio has to say about the design of the El Rey here. This Cherry Red 2010 Eastman El Rey One is in great shape with only a few small marks on the body and little to no fret wear.|
