    It was a toss up between this and my Eastman 503CE. Something had to go, which is a pity as I like both a lot.

    Eastman DM-1 Gypsy-Jazz guitar with Eastman case

    Price: £800 plus shipping
    Condition: Excellent
    Sale Territory: UK plus Europe only - sorry, but just not worth shipping elsewhere.



    Eastman have established themselves as one of the great jazz-guitar makers today. The DM-1 is their first gypsy-jazz guitar, based largely on the Selmer originals, and it really has that Django sound like no other guitar in its price range. Check out my videos:

    “DM” stands for Doug Martin. Doug is an extraordinary guitarist. This guitar was named after him.
    Rob is one of the truly excellent players on our forum who is liked and respected by everyone here.
    Whoever buys this guitar is going to get a can’t miss instrument with some extraordinary lineage already built into it.
    Good Luck with the sale Rob. Somebody is gonna get a beautiful guitar.
