Fingerstyle is fine for solo & quiet playing, but I've found with jam sessions and big band, I had to use a pick to be able to cut through. Using fingers to do that will get twangy and harsh. The few Eastman's I've played sounded kind of bright.
If you're going to use fingers, gain is your friend. Some archtop guitars sound good with acoustic amplification, my Martin CF-1 sounds nice with the Roland Cube acoustic setting. But generally, I prefer my Jazz Chorus or a Fender blackface tone.
