The Eastman E10OOSS/v is finished and antiqued in the violin varnish shop, where the finish is hand rubbed instead of sprayed. This instrument feels, plays, sounds and looks like a 50 year old guitar. Eastman instruments are known for their superb build quality and outstanding tone. Handbuilt using 'old time' craftsmanship skills. Supplied in a Deluxe Eastman Hard Case.
