Used Archtop Guitars
Eastman: USED T184MX-GB(Item ID: USED T184MX-GB Serial#: 11850239)
14" Thinline Hollowbody with Solid Carved Maple and Mahogany in Gold Burst and Dual Jason Lollar Imperial Low Wind Humbucker Pickups
From the Eastman website:
"Eastman Thinline guitars measure 1 3/4" in depth and feature exceptional tonal qualities. Each guitar is handcrafted by Eastman's talented luthiers and feature humbucking pickups. These versatile guitars neatly span the distance between a fine hollow body archtop and the classic center block thinline."
For us, one consistent and outstanding characteristic of the Eastman archtop hollowbody guitars is their exceptional unamplified sound. Likewise, guitars from the Eastman Thinline series have an uncommonly full voice made possible by unique design features which enhance the acoustic properties of their sound. First of all, they are made from hand carved solid woods, not laminated wood. And, in order to support their pickups and bridge assembly, the tops are carved thicker in the area under the pickups, while the stop tail piece and bridge are supported only by a small interior mahogany block. This design provides strength with minimum damping and maximizes cavity displacement both of which provide for more resonance potential. Thus, their natural sound is imbued with tonal properties more characteristic of their full-bodied cousins.
This T184MX was purchased new from us in early 2018, and, at the request of the original owner, we replaced the original Custom Lollar humbucker pickups (made for this model) with Dual Jason Lollar Imperial Low Wind humbucker pickups and an Emerson wiring kit with bumblebee caps.
