The E40 guitars are the pinnacle of Eastman's flat top guitars and are true "modern vintage" instruments. The solid Adirondack spruce top is paired with East Indian rosewood back and sides and an inlaid ebony fingerboard. The hand scalloped X braces provide a strong but flexible top that has huge projection across all registers. A comfortable neck contour and 1 3/4" neck width at nut feels great. This E40D dreadnought is finished with a rich sunburst finish and includes a factory arched top hardshell case.
