Eastman's flat-top acoustics just seem to keep getting better, exemplified by this awesome little E8OM-TC, an impressive six-string that punches well above its weight class. Featuring a torrefied Sitka spruce top, the guitar boasts a markedly open sound with clear trebles and lacks the "rigidity" of many new guitars. The rosewood back and sides add a resonant low end and definition to the E8OM's sound, and make it a great fit for singer-songwriters, folk musicians, or rock guitarists who want a big, bold sound to help fill out a band. As with all of Eastman's guitars, the craftsmanship is evident in every detail, from the pristine finish work to the excellent set up. Included in the price is an Eastman hard-shell case.
