Eastman deserves to be on the list. Yesterday, as a matter of fact, was the first day I got to visit an Eastman dealer. They replaced their Blueridge stock with Eastman, and I got to spend a lot of time there admiring things, and I spent a lot of time talking with the guy who was the head salesman there. We talked a long time about Eastman and Blueridge, and of course, Martin guitars.
So I agree with you here, Eastman is absolutely fantastic. The man at the store I visited said his problem was keeping Eastman stocked. He says they're hard to get, and this is because they make a low number of guitars each year, and they make sure what they put out on the market is flawless. The Eastman guitars I saw yesterday were certainly flawless.
