Eastman Custom Jazz 16 was designed by Guitars 'n Jazz owner, Lou Del Rosso and made by Eastman Guitars exclusively for Guitars' n Jazz. It is "gig ready" out of the box. The Jazz 16 is a 16" lower bout by 2 1/4" depth at the rim and features Eastman best premium woods, 905 neck profile, abalone inlays, hand wound Kent Armstrong set humbucking pickup, and most importantly heavy parallel bracing used in the 60's by Gibson in it's famous L5 models which are extremely expensive today. The fuller 905 profile neck and the heavy parallel top bracing makes a much stiffer top and a more complex Gibson like Jazz tone with the clarity that Eastman archtops are famous. The Jazz 16 Elite comes in a natural blonde finish with all maple binding. The Jazz 17 Elite will be available in late 2010, with a 17" lower bout and a 2 1/2 depth at the rims.
