They Think 'Inside The Box'
When it comes to building a guitar, there is a big difference between assembly and artistry. If history has taught them anything, it is that there is no substitute for skilled craftsmanship. At Eastman, each instrument is given the attention to detail required to ensure that it reaches its maximum potential. Features such as hand-scalloped bracing and precision tap tuning are just two examples of the way they differentiate themselves. Considering the outward beauty of an Eastman Guitar, it’s often easy to overlook the skill and artistry applied to the inside of such a fine instrument.
Quality. Care. Passion. These values all stem from a vision ever present since day one.

He never imagined that over the course of 25 years, the company would grow from a small business operated out of the back of his car into a global maker of musical instruments.
