I have to admit to having little clue or preconception when it came to Eastman Guitars. I hadn't tried or even seen one until last week. Now I'm completely smitten. I've tried the SB59/v and now this amazing T64 from their Thinline series. To say it's built well would be an understatement. And then there's the tones. Wow. Having watched a few Youtube videos of others presenting these guitars since, I can concur with the almost cliche sentiment of "Custom Shop Quality" at considerably less expense. These are classy guitars at ANY price. And I'm completely sold.
