Default SOLD - Eastman E1OO-LTD 12 Fret, Adi, 24.9, 1-11/16, 00

SOLD and heading to a happy new home in the great white North!



Eastman E1OO-LTD #39 of #130 made.

Simply a fantastic, lightweight, responsive, resonant guitar in new condition. Zero issues and plays like butter. It has a beautiful bottom end and sparkles with the lightest touch. It only takes a couple of strums to love it. Low action and intonation is perfect. Superb Adi top with a thin nitro finish. Comes with padded gigbag + original Eastman shipping box.

Pickup has been uninstalled but is included and easily re-installed; 1/2" jack hole is unplugged. Currently setup for effortless play with Martin Lifespan MSP7050 Custom Lights - 11-52.

$SOLD shipped in original Eastman box to lower 48 from San Diego, California. Scraping funds for a vintage 000-18 so no trades at the moment, sorry.

Dang.
It the nut were 1-3/4" or wider, you'd already be boxing that little instrument up for a trip to South Texas. Good luck with the sale.

Thanks, Dirk. Funny, I say the same on a regular basis, inversely; funny how that 1/16" makes a difference. The nut on this one does mic at just a fraction under 1.69, so it's a true 1-11/16. The neck is a "Traditional Even C" so there is a little more meat in the hands than a low profile, etc. and quite comfortable.

These guitars are outstanding. Just got one about a month ago and continue to be impressed with the sound that comes out of it. Good luck with the sale.

nice guitar, interesting it has a 1-11/16 but it certainly fills a empty spot for players who want a fine fingerstyle guitar with a smaller nut/neck

It's definitely a fingerpicker's dream. I'm 99% pick-borne and it's equally as impressive for strumming/flatpicking. Absolutely kills with a capo.
