    Picked this up today!
    I stopped at a local GC and unfortunately every Gibson they had in my price range was in really poor condition from hanging high on the wall and being neglected. Super dry boards, rusted strings…
    Went to a smaller local business that’s an Eastman dealer and snagged their last one! They also gave me $1275 for my trade that GC offered $750 on :rolleyes:
    If you’ve never tried an Eastman (electric or acoustic), do yourself a favor and just do it!

    Nice.

    I’ve never seen a new Eastman in person in a store.

    Very nice! Would you mind posting a pic of the control wiring. I have heard that it is old school high quality work.

    Those frets look pretty big. What are they?

    @Theron

    I think you made a great choice.

    Watched a couple of video's for these guitars.

    Yours is a beaut! Congrats!

    Edited to add: I noticed Jimmy Wallace Guitars are an Eastman dealer here in Texas. And if Jimmy is carrying them, they are top notch, period. Mr. Wallace doesn't mess around ;)

    These instruments sound heavenly......
