The Eastman T184MX is truly a classy instrument! It is a very high end 339 sized (14 inch) archtop that offers better features and a much better price than its counterpart made by a well know company with a ‘G’ in its name. Eastman already has an great reputation for making very high quality instruments at a competitive price, but this time they have truly outdone themselves! The T184MX has a very nice pair of Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers, a gorgeously flamed solid maple top, solid mahogany back and sides, flame maple binding and a flawless hand rubbed nitro finish. All this comes at a very attractive price!
Simply take a while to look at the pictures as they speak for themselves. The Eastman T184MX is a gorgeous fully hand built exactly as a high end archtop should be. The builders at Eastman are highly experienced and this guitar really shows that off very well. It doesn’t get much better than this. Now for the tone, it may be hard to believe but it sounds even better than it looks! If you are a Jazz, Blues or Rock player, this guitar will be perfect for you! Even when playing it acoustically you will be amazed by how good it sounds. And once you plug it in it will only get better. The sounds are warm with plenty of sustain. These are the type of sounds that simply inspire you to play, they truly make it hard to ever put the guitar down.
The Eastman T184MX is really a perfect guitar, it has everything a world class instrument should have. Even before strumming your first chord you will already notice how comfortable it is, which of course is one of the most important qualities in a guitar. You will feel right at home as soon as you pick it up. And the sound of course is absolutely out of this world. A perfect 10.
