Arrow SOLD! - 2021 Eastman AC522ce-GB

SOLD, Thanks AGF!


Up for grabs is my 2021 AC522ce-GB, a beautiful, versatile and great sounding Grand Auditorium style acoustic-electric guitar. The guitar was ordered without a pickguard to really show off the Gold Burst Finish.

For 2021, Eastman gave this model a major facelift into a more deluxe category with a number of impressive upgrades:

The top is European Alpine Spruce and a comfortable and beautifully figured mahogany arm bevel was added along with a side sound port, bone nut and saddle and abalone and mother of pearl inlays on the ebony peghead and fingerboard.

Add to that the Goldburst Finish, a dove tail neck joint, nitrocellulose lacquer finish and an L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup with discrete sound hole volume and tone controls and you have a hand crafted guitar that provides a great value at this price point.

On top of these 2021 factory upgrades, I also added Gotoh 510 gold tuner buttons to the stock Gotoh SG301 tuning machines which really modernizes the appearance of this Eastman Grand Auditorium model. The original tuner buttons are included in the case pocket.








More pictures can be seen HERE.


The guitar sounds great both acoustically and plugged into my Fishman Artist amp or QSC PA. Both the guitar and original hard shell case are in excellent condition.

This model sells new for $1,689+tax. Here is your opportunity to own this 2021 model in excellent condition and save yourself a lot of cash.


AGF price was $OLD now only $OLD net to me in the CONUS. Transaction fees, if any, are the buyer's responsibility. Local pickup is available in the Dallas area.

Thanks Jim, this model definitely punches well above it's price point. I just installed a new set of Elixir Light Strings this afternoon and it sounds really good. I didn't find any visible fret wear and the guitar's exterior is also in excellent condition.

Below are a few pictures I took this afternoon during the string change:















I'm selling this guitar to make room for my commissioned build with Tyler Robbins which will be completed soon. Someone is going to be happy owning this gently played 2021 Eastman!
