Crafted with precision, the AR480CE SB features a 24 3/4-inch scale length, a 12-inch radius ebony fingerboard, and a 16-inch by 2 3/4-inch flamed laminated maple body.

The fingerboard's 12-inch radius offers a player-friendly feel, ensuring comfortable fretting across the instrument's ebony expanse. At the 19th fret, you'll find Pisano's signature, encapsulating the guitar's unique connection to its namesake.

The AR480CE SB is appointed with a Pisano-style ebony tailpiece featuring a distinctive frog inlay, contributing to the guitar's aesthetic allure. The bridge, also crafted from ebony, provides stability and tonal resonance. The gold hardware and Pisano signature wood knob complement the guitar's visual elegance.

Seymour Duncan's Seth Lover pickup is thoughtfully positioned to capture the instrument's inherent tonal depth, while the MC223 0.022 capacitor and CTS 500K linear taper potentiometers ensure a responsive and versatile tonal palette.

The Eastman AR480CE 'Sunburst' John Pisano Signature Model Electric Guitar arrives with a hardshell case, ensuring its protection during travel and storage. Whether you're drawn to its timeless sunburst finish, captivated by its exceptional craftsmanship, or inspired by John Pisano's legacy, this instrument promises an unparalleled playing experience and a connection to the heritage of jazz guitar.
