Eastman DT30 GACE "Double Top" Grand Auditorium Guitar
Sold out, please call 02 9817 2173 for next shipment.
This Eastman DT30GACE leaves the traditional acoustic guitar designs behind and gives the player a modern guitar with comfort, innovation and playability as a priority. The Grand Auditorium body shape is very comfortable and the cutaway gives access to all frets which gives the guitar maximum tonal range. The neck has an accessible C-shape which makes the instrument easy to play. The back and sides are made of solid Rosewood which offers a full, direct and rich tonal character.
The top is where the innovation comes into play. It consists of a pair of one-millimeter-thin slices of spruce which are joined together with an equally thin strip of printed material called Nomex, which resembles a thin shaving of a honeycomb. Nomex was originally devised for use in the aerospace industry. On its own, the material is nearly weightless, composed almost entirely of air. Set upright between the pieces of spruce, it acts like a rigid wall, adding layers of density and depth. The many intricate details like the maple bindings on the body, fretboard and headstock, but also the pearl "Hallelujah" inlays also provide a pleasant picture for both the player and onlookers. The built in LR Baggs anthem pickup ensures that the beautiful tonal character stays intact when using it on stage. Includes luxury hardshell case.
