The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Eastman PCH3 GACE Grand Auditorium Steel String Guitar


Instrument Categories: ,

The Eastman PCH3 GACE features an eye catching translucent black finish over a laminate flame maple sided and back and a solid Sitka spruce top. This combination makes it a great choice for situations where good tone and playability are valued, but so are durability  and resistance to environment-related instability.

The grand auditorium body used on the Eastman PCH3 GACE is comfortable and versatile, and takes cues from another very popular brand;  until recently, many guitars were based on classic Martin and Gibson designs.   It performs well for both fingerstyle and strumming and the solid Sitka spruce top has good dynamics and clarity. The Venetian cutaway provides easy access to the upper frets and the onboard Fishman pickup system has this flashy guitar ready for the stage.   The laminate sides and back work with the pickup system to help reduce feedback at volume – laminates tend to be less acoustically responsive.

If you are looking for a great workhorse guitar with some subtle flash and eye catching looks this is the one for you.

The Eastman PCH3 GACE is sold with an Eastman gig bag.
