The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Eastman AR805CE Cutaway Archtop Guitar, Sunburst 2006


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Eastman AR805CE archtop is a high quality archtop guitar sporting a cutaway and traditional neck-mount pickup, with controls on the pickguard so the solid spruce top is not restricted by extra hardware.

Hearkening back to the days of archtop supremacy, the AR805CE uses a 16 inch wide, 3.25 inch deep body built with solid woods – carved solid spruce for the top, carved solid maple for the back, and maple for the sides and neck. Ebony is used for the bridge, fingerboard, headplate, pickguard and tailpiece cover. The body and neck are bound with grained ivoroid, and the guitar is finished in a traditional style nitrocellulose lacquer sunburst finish. Gold-plated Grover Imperial tuning gears with the classic deco “stairstep” buttons are installed.

The pickup is a neck-mount, or ‘Floating’ model by Kent Armstrong. As an aside, Kent Armstrong is the son of the late Dan Armstrong, an influential 1960’s luthier responsible for a number of innovations, including the use of Lucite as a body.

This Eastman AR805CE archtop dates to 2006 and is in good working order, and very good, original physical condition. There are a few minor marks and some light scuffing on the back from being played. Fret wear is very light and the original hard shell case is included.
