Eastman Strings is one of the largest producers of archtop instruments in the world, including violins, cellos and other related instruments. Archtop guitars are a natural fit for them.
Te Eastman 405E features a comfortable 16-inch non-cutaway body built with maple laminates, and binding around the top, back and F-holes. The neck is mahogany with a 25 inch scale bound rosewood fingerboard and 1.75 inch nut width. The P-90 pickup has a creme cover and a clear riser, and a single volume and tone control on the top. The finish is an antique burst.
This is a very nice guitar, and reminiscent of the early electic archtops played in the 1930s to 1950s by many jazz, blues and early rock artists.
