    Got my first jazz box the other day, Eastman 403ced

    Perhaps you can throw your advice in as I ramble a while..... as i said above, this is my 1st try of a jazz box

    Acoustically not as loud as a regular acoustic
    Acoustically guitar is a little bright
    Not as loud as my Les Paul when plugged into mesa Rec 25 rhythm ch
    Treble PUP is a little round and middy and had to remove some mids on amp

    Some other stuff I kinda half expected

    12s (strings) are MURDER!
    linear pots are hopeless for tone.....looking to turn down pot for jazz tones? nothing happens until the very last twist of pot!

    Some thoughts on build of guitar

    Oh boy, it takes me all of two minutes to find fault(s) in any guitar, be it bridge placement faults or ridges between fingerboard fit and neck
    but I am really struggling to find ANYTHING wrong with this guitar that i can see
    The guitar appears to have binding on body and neck but i simply cannot find an area anywhere where it is not perfect, perhaps it is the PRS type of binding. IDK

    My plan is to use the box for some simple jazz self accompaniment stuff and of course the regular rock and roll racket
    Up next is a set of 11's and most likely a little tweak. All in all I am well pleased.
    At this point the guitar looks to have less faults than any of my 3 cs guitars

    Thanks Guys
