Review: The Eastman E20SS Slope Shoulder Acoustic Guitar

It isn’t every day I get to sit down and play a beautiful instrument like the Eastman E20SS acoustic guitar.

Well, okay, maybe it IS every day. But I’ve enjoyed in immensely nonetheless!

Here I have a bit of fun sharing a quick overview and then playing an original song called, “It Won’t Matter.”

This wonderfully made hand-crafted instrument is ideal for pros and hobbyists alike and features a solid Adirondack spruce top, and a solid rosewood back and sides. It’s finished with a gorgeous Tobacco sunburst and retails for $1500.

The E20SS is a popular choice for flatpicking and live vocal accompaniment, with an extremely dynamic response, from soft picking to hard strumming. It projects enough to fill a room with its full-bodied tone.
