    hopefully they'll be available in the US without having to import them twice. Then you'll see a lower price.

    That first one has a bit of a 50s/60s Guild M-65 Freshman flavor. Love it!

    Confucius say: 14 inches plenty for porn star, but too small for jazz.

    They do have a new AR 175 coming out soon.

    But these look waaaay cool!

    Someone at Eastman must be a fan of Benedetto. I can't say I blame them.

    A little off topic, but Jack, do you have any experience with or comments about the Peerless archtops. appears they have a 175 copy called the gigmaster, and an L-5 type.

    I had to sell my 175, and it will probably be awhile before I can afford the real thing.

    Confucius say: 14" hollowbody or nipples on man, what's the point?

    Very cool! Can't deny Eastman's value for the money, and they look ace too.

    dunno, robben ford plays a 13" or 14" hollowbody and last time I checked, about 99.9% of TGP is trying to sound like him. Maybe a little less since they merged with Harmony-Central. ;)

    A little bigger than the Benedetto Andy - longer scale (24 3/4 v 23"), an inch wider (13"), half inch deeper (3 1/2). ...

    as for the comment that somebody at Eastman must like Benedettos - it goes beyond that. Eastman, then just a bowed instrument maker, approached Benedetto about a partnership. He turned them down, then started his Savannah operation. Eastman proceeded, with its first models - full body archtop - modelled on Benedettos....

    I've heard just about every genre of jazz played on just about every size and shape guitar. Only the strict traditionalists would not want to play on a 14".
