The Cabaret is a nylon-design with modern appointments that Eastman is aiming toward jazz and fingerstyle players. Features include a solid spruce top with figured maple back and sides, a narrow-classical cedar neck and ebony fingerboard.

Other features include an LR Baggs LB6 pickup and Schaller GrandTune tuners, as well as a cutaway for better upper fret access and a narrower nut width designed to be comfortable for electric players.

The Cabaret sells for $2,999.
