Eastman AC522CE, Grand Auditorium, European Spruce, Mahogany, Cutaway - NEW - SOLD

(NEW) Now this is exciting... sometimes a guitar comes along that sounds SO good, looks SO good, feels SO good... and then you take a look at the price tag, only to say: 

"Well THAT'S good!!!!"

The AC series from Eastman never fails to bowl us over.  We are pretty traditional in our tastes, and Grand Auditorium guitars generally don't get us too whipped up... but when we started seeing the masterpieces coming out of the Eastman shop we changed our tune!  The AC522CE is the electrified, mahogany entry in the series, and it just has tone for days.  Now featuring the Tone-Tite neck joint, developed by Dana Bourgeois.  An excellent mahogany guitar with all of the modern accoutrements that a player could ask for.  It's pretty darned sublime, ya know?
