Eastman Electric Guitars - 2007 AR880CE John Pisano Archtop

SOLD - Contact us for more options


This Eastman AR880 CE Pisano Archtop is part of Eastman's John Pisano signature line, personally designed by the jazz legend. Its hand-carved Spruce top and Maple sides and back offer classic jazz tones with the playability you'd expect from an Eastman. Pisano paired with pickup designer Kent Armstrong to build a humbucker specifically for this guitar—and it's impeccable. A Venetian cutaway allows easy access to all 20 frets and the Ebony fingerboard is smooth and comfortable with a 1 3/4” nutwidth.

This is in Very Good condition with a few play marks, most noticeably a couple of scratches along the binding on the bass side and two marks on the back (see photos), but overall this is in beautiful shape. Plugged in or unplugged, the Eastman AR880 CE John Pisano Archtop is entirely worthy of the Pisano name and delivers beautiful, balanced tone. The build quality of this guitar far surpasses the price, even when this was new. Comes with the original hard case. Serial# 2193.
