Eastman PCH1 OM Orchestra Model Steel String Guitar, Natural

Eastman PCH1 OM Orchestra Model Steel String Guitar, Natural

The all-new Eastman PCH1 OM model really hits a sweet spot for players looking for upgraded features at an affordable price. One of the main features on this model is the solid Sitka spruce top, paired with a laminate Sapele body.  The top or sound board is one of the main components in tone production on an acoustic guitar. While laminate tops have more durability they are stiff and don’t vibrate well. The solid top vibrates with the energy of the strings and produces tone, and its ability to do this develops over time with playing.   This is a guitar that will grow with you!

Martin 00 16E Granadillo Steel String Guitar

Martin 00 16E Granadillo Steel String Guitar

The new Martin 00 16E model starts from the classic 00, or Grand Concert body size, but in place of Mahogany or Indian Rosewood for the back and sides uses Granadillo. Granadillo is also known as Mexican Rosewood or Platymiscium Yucatanum. In Central and South America, it’s often used under the name Macacauba for musical instruments. Its density and hardness help it deliver a bit more top end than true Rosewoods, but still has bottom end and warmth.
