Description

This AR610 from Eastman is virtually as new and features an upgraded Seymour Duncan Benedetto pickup (includes original Eastman pickup in case). Includes hard case.

Here is what Eastman said about Jim Fisch designed-models like this one...

'Jim Fisch had a life long passion for archtop guitars and the music created by these instruments. In 1982 Jim co-arthured "Epiphone - The House of Staphopolous" documenting the historic company. His regular contributions to 20th Century Guitars kept players and collectors abreast of the most recent innovations in the guitar industry.

Jim joined Eastman Guitars in 2004 to help us expand and improve our line of instruments. His accomplishments can be seen throughout nearly every one of our guitars and mandolins.

The Jim Fisch archtop guitars represent the last project that Jim worked on before his sudden death in 2006. Jim's hope was that these guitars would allow players who did not own an archtop guitar the ability to do so. Eastman is dedicating these guitars to Jim's memory, and will donate a portion of the proceeds from each guitar sale to the newly formed Jim Fisch Foundation, which will work to expose the music of the archtop guitar to individulas throughout the world.

Each Jim Fisch Archtop Guitar is hand crafted with a solid Spruce for the top and Mahogany back and sides. These guitars feature Rosewood fingerboards and are available in Classic and Classic/Sunburst finishes.'
