When it comes to beautiful hand-crafted acoustic guitars, the best ones are a brilliantly designed mix of high quality wood, hardware, strings, and expert construction. The result – a sound that can’t be achieved by anything less.
When you’re learning how to play the guitar, a beginner instrument is ideal. But when you’ve been playing for a while, you may want to upgrade to something that will give you a more unique and richer tone. After all, you’ve worked hard to get to where you are, right? And the best reward for all of that hard work is surely a new guitar that’s as individual as you are.
That’s where a brand like Eastman Guitars might shine. Chances are you’ve probably never heard of them. But I’ll introduce you to them and an acoustic guitar I’m sure you’ll love.
Overview of Eastman AC322CE Guitar
Whether you’re playing fingerstyle or strumming along to your favorite song, the Eastman AC322CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a solid looking guitar that sounds just as good as it looks.
If you’re looking for a high-quality sound, you don’t have to look any further than this guitar.
This jumbo Venetian-style cutaway features a rich warm tone that is shaped by its solid Alaskan Sitka spruce top and solid Sapele sides and back. The neck is constructed from mahogany with an ebony fingerboard and pearl dot inlays. The guitar features hand-carved scalloped X bracing and 5-ply Ivoroid binding.
The guitar boasts a balanced voice throughout the entire sonic range of the guitar, which is great for ensuring all of the notes sound out when playing fingerstyle. For live performance situations, whether picking individual notes or strumming chords, the guitar is set up with the Fishman Matrix VT pickup system. The Fishman system authentically reproduces the guitar’s natural sound beautifully.
The AC322CE’s comfort and playability are topped off by its beautiful natural gloss finish. Naturally, a guitar like this needs to be well cared for and protected, so it comes with a solid hardshell case.
Who are Eastman Guitars?
Handcrafted guitars have a sound and design that are unmatched by lower end guitars which are manufactured on an assembly line. Just ask fans of Taylor or Martin acoustic guitars. With a handcrafted instrument, you know you’re getting something that has been designed and assembled with great care by a master guitar craftsman.
The Eastman Music Company started out as Eastman Strings in 1992 when Qian Ni moved to America from China to study music. After forming Eastman Strings and becoming a trusted violin manufacturer, the expert staff at Eastman began applying their same commitment to high-quality instruments in designing and building archtop acoustic guitars.
Eastman has become a highly trusted brand for acoustic guitars and players love the way the instruments feel and sound. Now that you know a little bit about the manufacturer, I’ll introduce you to one of their top instruments.
The AC322CE is a solid instrument with a lot packed into it and even includes Eastman’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. This guitar’s list price is, but you can find it at a great price when you buy.
Though this guitar will cost you more than the typical beginner acoustic guitar, with a trusted brand like Eastman Guitars it will be well worth the money.
