Eastman E16SS-TC-LTD Thermo-Cured Acoustic Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

Indulge in the exquisite craftsmanship and timeless allure of the Eastman E16SS-TC-LTD, a limited edition masterpiece that pays homage to the classic slope-shoulder dreadnought design. This guitar boasts a remarkable combination of features, including a thermo-cured solid Adirondack spruce top and the finest solid quartersawn maple back and sides, all held together with hand-carved Scalloped X bracing. The result is a guitar that exudes vintage tonality and charm right out of the case, thanks to its thermo-cured timbers.

The E16SS-TC-LTD's allure is more than skin deep; its maple neck, complemented by an ebony fingerboard, provides a comfortable playing experience. The traditional even "C" neck profile, along with a bone nut and 20 Jescar-FW43080 fretwire, ensures smooth playability and precise intonation. Its 24.75" scale length and 16" X 4-1/2" body dimensions deliver a balanced and resonant sound that's ideal for a variety of playing styles.

Every aspect of the E16SS-TC-LTD is meticulously designed, from the timeless pearl headstock logo to the classic rosette and pearl diamond inlays that grace the fingerboard. The tortoise shell binding with herringbone purfling accentuates the guitar's elegance, while the glossy finish on the solid Thermo-Cure Adirondack spruce top and bookmatched quarter-sawn amber maple back and sides adds to its visual appeal.

Complete with ebony bridge pins, a firestripe pickguard, and nickel hardware, this guitar is a visual and auditory masterpiece. Open-gear tuners, a bone saddle with 2-5/32" spacing, and D'Addario XT Phosphor Bronze strings provide dependable tuning stability and enhanced playability.

Indulge in the rich history and captivating sound of the Eastman E16SS-TC-LTD acoustic guitar, available in a traditional finish. Each limited edition piece comes with a hardshell case, allowing you to safeguard your treasure and make music for generations to come. Discover the perfect blend of vintage aesthetics and modern excellence with the Eastman E16SS-TC-LTD, a true testament to Eastman's commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
