Lucius Eastman Guitars - Any experience? (10) RE: Eastman Guitars - Any experience? 11 Mar 07


I just got back from a Music Conference that had a Jazz Cutaway on display. Not bad, but it seemed a little loose on the overall construction. The neck is probably an 8 out of 10. The finish was exquisite, as it had a light stain and french polish. The salesman was trying to sell me on the sound quality, as it is how Eastman finishes their violins. Seemed like a waste of finish, who plays jazz guitar without plugging in? (at least since Freddie Green died). I didn't check out the electronics, the Gotoh tuning machines seemed over-geared. Nice, but still, I wouldn't trade my C Fox for one.
