The Eastman E20D TC is the ultimate dreadnought if you wanted to come as close as you can to the sound and feel of a Martin Dreadnought but with a 2thousand Euro less budget.
This Eastman E20D-TC Dreadnought features a Thermo-Cured solid Adirondack Red Spruce top that cooked off the volatiles (oils, sugars, and resins) in a controlled heat environment essentially speeding up a 50-year process, opening the guitar up to a full range of tones. Thus creating a louder guitar, perfect for musicians trying to compete with noisier instruments. This canon is build with a solid Rosewood back and sides in full gloss Nitro and a nice big full Mahogany neck with satin finish
She offers a really satisfying tone at a low volume. Dig in deeper and be surprised by the awesome volume range without ever breaking up. Awesomely big and bold. You’ll never have to worry about competing for sonic space with this classic, flat-picking bluegrass instrument. Perfect for ensemble settings where cutting through the mix can be an issue. Beauty, Brawn, and power is something that one is to expect from this well-build Eastman. She’s punchy, loud, comfortable to play, and most importantly, a complete steal at her affordable price! She is in near mint condition! Listen to a sound impression by Ian Meadows here:
