The Eastman E3DE features a solid sitka spruce top with solid ovankol back & sides, a beautiful herringbone purfling and Fishman electronics. Ovangkol, which is tonally similar to rosewood, is known for its punchy projection and exceptional sustain. Ovangkol is also very affordable when compared to rosewood, which makes it a great alternative for those who are on a budget but prefers the sounds that rosewood is so well known for.
We inspect each and every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
