    Its a Eastman PCH-1D. I had this on layaway when i found my Sigma, i tried to get out of the deal but they wouldn't let me, so i ended up with two Dreadnaughts. I didn't think i needed this but i was wrong, its very musical and quite different than the Sigma, more J45 than D45 in its tone. This is an excellent guitar that just so happens to be affordable, like 300 bux affordable. Solid spruce top, Sapelle back and sides, maple neck with a rosewood board, bone nut and saddle, good sealed tuners and the fit and finish are excellent, its got a definite hand made vibe to it. Looks good, plays good, sounds good, smells good......recommended. 20210925_083650.jpg 20210925_083715.jpg

    Congrats ! For the price I think it would be worth "doubling up". Have fun.

    Looks like an awesome dred. Tight, well matched spruce top. Beautiful Sapelle back and sides. RW FB.

    Thanks guys, every Eastman I've ever played was just a good solid musical instrument, they really know how to build a guitar. They are serious craftspeople making instruments like they used to.

    Congrats on a great guitar! Every Eastman I've played has always been met with varying degrees of glowing positive impressions....tone meets quality!

    I’ve owned a few Eastman’s, including one Dreadnought. Eastman makes very nice guitars.

    Congrats on the Eastman Dreadnaught, wildeman!

    My choice in acoustics is always a Dreadnaught, so I'm liking it already. Then the look of that grain on the Sapele back and sides . . . wow! When you say is sounds good? Well, that's the right trifecta in my book.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a guitar with Sapele back and sides. I've got a Yamaha ntx1 nylon string with beautiful honey and amber hues in it that is really enjoyable to play.
