  • I bought an Eastman...

    I've been doing my research and was lucky enough to find an Eastman distributor in my state of Queensland, Australia. I say lucky as one guitar is never the same as the next, and so much more profound when dealing with acoustics (coming from playing electrics). Truth be told, I was a bit ignorant to this and was considering ordering online... I'm glad I didn't. 

    It was 100km's to the shop and was intent on buying the E10D, they had two of them there. I played both and one was better than the other by a country mile. I then decided to play the other models they had and every other guitar in a similar price range. I ended up picking up an AC320 and upon walking by without knowing which one I was playing, the salesman remarked, "That's the one". He was right, it was not only the best sounding, but the best playing one too. Had the thickest neck, which is a bonus for me and my big mitts. So, coming from electric to acoustic I only had to shell out $700 with a case included and was prepared to spend more but didn't have to. 

    Truth be told, I don't think I can ever buy online again, even for electrics, so much variation and so much more so with acoustics. 

    It has a lot of body and definition and the E10D's sounded thin in comparison. It is very resonant and sustains really well, to a fault as if I had to be critical, notes may carry on a bit much when hammering cowboy chords (great for single notes in saying that). Regardless, one happy camper here as I venture into the acoustic world, pictures...

    I guess I kinda lost control, because in the middle of the play I ran up and lit the evil puppet villain on fire. No, I didn't. Just kidding. I just said that to help illustrate one of the human emotions, which is freaking out. Another emotion is greed, as when you kill someone for money, or something like that. Another emotion is generosity, as when you pay someone double what he paid for his stupid puppet.I.K.F.C.E.S.C.Potato SocietySAWG

      Congratulations and good cal!l  Eastmans are the real deal.  

      I can't imagine buying online.  If I was willing to do a lot of shipping maybe, but otherwise...
