Default Eastman 805E Archtop, Eastman T185MX

2007 T185 MX
Original Owner, Serial # 1725
An amazing and versatile guitar
Unlike a 335 style, this guitar is fully hollow carved with all solid woods
A center block sits only under the tun-o-matic bridge and stop tail pc
Much warmer arch-top like tones out of the Neck pickup.
Amazing searing lead-tones from the bridge pickup. And absolutely NO FEEDBACK!
Mint $1095

Original Owner - Stunning Guitar - SOLD

Chiming in--I just sold an 810 and these are GREAT guitars. I do not use that description lightly when it comes to archtops. I used to own the Tom Bills archtop offered by Guitar Gallery for $15k these days. Obviously, a different level of instrument, but a high quality Eastman can run with the best of them in my mind.

Hearty endorsement of the 185mx. I own one and it's the most incredible hollow-body I've ever played. Thin as a 335, but with a sound approaching an archtop. 1300 is a steal.

+1 - it's my go to instrument, and with some upgraded pickups set up for split coils it does just about everything I could want out of an electric. Great build quality, too, and that bridge block is just as good as advertised.

+2 on the T185MX. I really enjoy mine. Great vibe.

Is yours still for sale? I only see photos of the 805.

What is the nut width and string spacing at the bridge on the 805?

Thanks,
