"I have an Eastman AR-605 no pickup and no cutaway. By far the finest instrument I have ever owned. I also have a Gibson ES-175d I bought new in the early 70's it is a good instrument but is junk next to the eastman."

Eastman vs. Godin archtops

Gang, I've always like Godin and Seagull guitars, and like their 5th Ave w its P90s, but an Eastman Uptown -- I think it's an 805E -- has show up used at a local vintage shop. Plays like a dream, great sound even unplugged.See More

"I like the idea of P-90s, tho of course that's a bit odd for an archtop... I've not played em side by side (they're at different shops) but the Eastman seemed like a whole higher level of guitar (as well as many times more…"

"Here's a link to a Kingpin II at Wolfe's TN location - a burgandy one - $699: http://www.gbase.com/gear/godin-5th-avenue-cw-kingpin-ii-2010-burgundy-2 ckson can wax poetic about his recently-acquired Loar archtop... ;-)"

FloridaGull replied to Scott Timberg's discussion Eastman archtops
"The Kingpin is all-laminate, while the Eastman is a solid spruce topped instrument, so there is that difference. IMHO, the 2 P90's on the Kingpin II allow more variety than the one pickup on the Eastman (I haven't seen/played an Eastman…"

" I like the Godin Fifth Ave's I've played -- that's another in my favorite category of a poor-man's L5. So how do you compare the two, Mr. Gull?"

"Masterbilt is a great guitar, but you owe it to yourself to check out a Seagull Maritime. It's comparable to a Martin at the price point of a Masterbilt"

Richard Rambler replied to Scott Timberg's discussion Epiphone Wood? in the group Epiphone Owners Group
"Well, owing to the fact that Epiphones are built in asia it's a given that they use cheap Asian wood. Gibsons, on the other hand, are built in America using cheap American wood!  For 8 TIMES THE PRICE."
