This AR805CE-SB Uptown Archtop guitar is a great jazzbox, but this classic archtop is so much more. This has solid, hand-crafted construction with a wonderful, warm tone. Acoustically or plugged in, it sounds great. The single floating Kent Armstrong humbucker delivers true tone and works beautifully for many styles of music. The solid Spruce top and hand-carved Maple back, sides and neck, Ebony fingerboard and pickguard all come together perfectly in this excellent-sounding, 16" wide guitar that simply oozes vintage vibe.

Here with a 25" scale, 22 Nickel-Silver frets, and a comfortable 1 3/4" nut width, you get a smooth, fast player that's great for a variety of playing styles. The AR805CE-SB Uptown Archtop has Gotoh tuners with elegant Ebony buttons, Eastman's renowned lacquer finish, and comes with a red hard shell plastic molded case. A free setup to your specs, done by our in-house luthiers, is also included.
