Here is a fantastic axe compared to the martin HD 28 this guitar looks like sounds like an hd28 and plays unbelievable. I can't say enough about this guitar you may think nothing sounds as good as a well seasoned martin. And to an extent I agree but easman has come as close to perfecting the martin sound comparison I have heard. This e8d is a fine instrument. Constructed after martins HD 28 with all the same features. Don't take my word for it check it out yourself. These models are made like martins 1930 1940s era. Solid sitka top some models are adi. Top solid rosewood back and sides some are Brazilian rosewood.or east Indian.this one has bookmatched back and sides. Extremely dynamic response with that great sustain. Notes crystal clear. Good full bodied tone whether pickn or strummn. These braces are hand carved scalloped x bracing. Neck is solid mahogany. 13/4 bone. But bridge ebony saddle is bone also. Open gear gotoh tuners. This guitar sells in the store 1250.00 when this guitar is aged played plenty of hours it will hold its own against any vintage guitar. If you can't afford a HD 28 martin check out the Eastman its a head turner. By the way this top is also trimmed in 100 percent herringbone. Like the martin HD. This guitar also has martins famous volute neck.sand last of all the Eastman doesn't have that 3000. Price tag.
