A brand new guitar which sounds remarkably like an old Martin!!! Thanks to the advanced aging techniques used in the production of Eastmans Thermo-Cured series! And that Madagascar Rosewood is simply stunning!
The E20OM-TC Limited Madagascar is essentially the top of the line OM of the Eastman line! They did everything right on this guitar. From the Solid Rosewood back and sides, Thermo-Cured Adirondack Spruce top and hand scalloped x-bracing, to the nitro lacquer finish, every detail is considered when making this model. And it really shows in the tone and playability. It’s one of those instruments that just fills the room with sound, and it seems to do so with no effort at all. The bottom end is lush and deep while the mids and highs punch through with some serious authority. Overall this one sounds a bit more dry than the and resonant than the standard series guitars, this is because the thermo treatment on the top ages the wood in a way where impurities are baked out and saps are crystalized and hardened in a way it would otherwise take a very long time to occur naturally. Also, these “TC” models seem to just utilize nicer materials and top woods in general. If you want a big time pro level sound without the big time price tag, this is a brilliant option. Includes professional setup, free strap button installation, free shipping within the lower 48 US, and deluxe Hardshell Case with arched lid.
