The 8 series guitars are Eastman’s premier acoustic guitars, and this one more than lives up to expectation. The Grand Auditorium body style is excellent for a wide variety of playing situations and this one performs gracefully when fingerpicked, flatpicked, or strummed. The Engelmann Spruce top is very warm but it still maintains plenty of clarity and pitch definition. Elegant appointments like the Abalone rosette and figured maple binding make this thing look as sweet as it sounds.

Eastman handcrafted acoustic guitars cover a wide range of playing styles and sound. The Traditional Series (model names beginning with E) bring back memories of the great instruments of the Golden Era of guitar building. Those were days when all work was done by gifted craftspeople, by hand using simple tools.
All Eastman acoustic guitars share that heritage. Eastman acoustics provide many choices of body styles and fine woods; perfect for many contemporary applications. These are heirloom-quality instruments which may be enjoyed by future generations of musicians.
Eastman Grand Auditorium acoustics feature a warm, balanced tone, with sound projection suitable for ensemble playing. They perform well for fingerpicking, flat picking and accompaniment.
Designed by renown Italian guitar maker Fabio Ragghianti, this unique instrument features a sound port on the upper bout for a spacious ambient voice. The ergonomically correct fanned fret design intonates perfectly and balances brilliantly.
