After only a few minutes with this 2007 AR805CE Uptown Archtop, you'll find yourself wanting to play just a little longer . . . and then a little longer. This has solid, hand crafted construction and gives you a wonderful, warm tone when played acoustically or plugged in. And with the Eastman pickup, the sound you want is what you'll get get. The Spruce top and handcarved Maple back, sides and neck, Ebony fingerboard and pickguard all make for an excellent sounding archtop that works well for many styles—rock, country, blues, and especially jazz.
This is in Very Good condition, with some play wear (see photos): a few small marks on the front lower bout, one on the back, and the most significant on the top bout of the bass side - all purely cosmetic. This AR805 CE has the earlier gold tuners with Ebony buttons, Eastman's renowned lacquer finish and comes with the original hard shell case too. Serial# 1271.
