This is the exact guitar that was reviewed recently in Total Guitar magazine where it won their 'Best Buy' award and was scored 5 out of 5 overall rating.
I can see why Eastman chose this particular guitar for review, it has a stunning dark Classic finish with some gorgeous wood grain. The finish is slightly darker than usual for a 'Classic' finish and looks even better for it. As usual for Eastman, the guitar is a wonder to play and it sounds sublime! No wonder this guitar scored so highly in the review!
Eastman thinline guitars are handcrafted and lacquered — the way they ought to be. They have a warm, rich tone and feature premium pickups from the world’s finest manufacturers, meticulously selected for maximum character.
The instruments in the Thinline Series — whether featuring solid construction for the warmer, fuller tones or laminate construction for those times on stage when things need to get louder — possess unique characteristics made possible by the differences in body style, tone woods, construction, and size.
The 386 is a full-size 16” thinline. Laminate Maple Top, Laminate Maple back and sides with versatile, responsive, with plenty of tone and attitude! Dual Kent Armstrong Humbucker Pickups.
The T386 now features an ebony fingerboard.
