Eastman E1OM Traditional Series Orchestra Model Natural Satin Finish
Whether you’re a purist seeking a guitar steeped in tradition, or someone with their sights set on a more modern instrument, you’ll find what you’re looking for in our Orchestra models.
More Than Just a Name
The Orchestra name was given to this model in 1929 in an attempt to entice guitarists in dance orchestras to pick one up and take it to a gig. In more recent years, it has become a go-to instrument for finger pickers, due to its sensitive dynamic profile and subtle tonal properties. It provides a more carefully sculpted sound than a big bodied acoustic.
Our handcrafted instruments pay tribute to traditional build methods and body styles while delivering a balanced and refined tone.
All of our instruments are built in workshops in Beijing by an expert team of luthiers and craftsmen.
