"Every day we try to make a better guitar, every day. You're trying to reach for more, trying to do better, not trying to do the same. A lot of companies are trying to do the same, and that's okay - that's their deal. We're trying to stretch that. Our goal is a little more." - Bill Collings
We rarely see used Eastside Jazz LC's so we're thrilled to have this one in the shop!
The Eastside Jazz LC is the perfect archtop for players who tend to shy away from large-bodied archtops (L-5, ES-175, etc...) but want that classic vibe and tone. The thin 15" body definitely provides a far more comfortable playing experience not dissimilar from playing, say, a Gibson ES-125 and an ES-125 T.
Played acoustically, the slim body accentuates the midrange and provides a snappy, lively feel - perfect for late night practicing. Plugged in, you'd never know you're playing a thin-bodied archtop - the Lollar Charlie Christian pickup delivers as round, full, and inspiring a tone as any old-school archtop we've played.
Condition: Excellent, save for a small chip in the clear coat by the nut (bass side).
There is a simplicity and elegance to Eastside Jazz LC that we find very attractive. Just a gorgeous playing, sounding, and looking guitar! Price includes hard case by Ameritage.
Interested? We may have another on the way.
