Hi I have three archtops - a Gibson L-4 ('34), and Harmoney Monterey ( '64) and a 2007 Eastman AR805.

The Harmony was my first, and I bought it in 2006 in , effectively, showroom condition. The neck is perfect, and it sounds great for what it was designed as - i.e. a dance band rhythm box. It is as sited for that job as the Gibson.
The Eastman , understandable has a far more open warmer tonality.

Harmony as we all know made an enormous amount of instruments of every types and , like Martins and Gibsons - sometimes they scored a bulls eye, whilst many more were just somewhere on the butt.
