    @Mickey Jerry is showing one in stock. In my experience, that doesn't actually mean it is "in stock". When he gets them, they seem to fly outta there FASSSSSSSSSST. Great guitar all around and at a reasonable price to boot.

    Always been keen to try an Eastman. I thought you loved the Phat Cats:



    Just teasing OMB. I realize there are many reasons to sell a guitar.

    The one Jerry has is a "stop tail" not a Bigsby. :(

    You can always add a Wiggle Stick if'n ya favor them. I tried buying one of these from Jerry about 3 years ago. It wasn't in stock, even though it was on the site. He told me they were due in any time. I called several months later and they had come and gone. Guess I should have given him a down payment? My mistake. Now, I've sworn off any further gear purchases, and there are a few guitars out there that I really want, badly. It's rough applying discipline to bad habits.

    I have too many 335's. Two Ibby's and a Guild SF VI. I have a tendency not to want to play really expensive guitars and the Eastman has the nitro finish that always worries me and cost over a grand. My sweet spot is in the $500 - $900 range. I tend to worry less about them. Yes I know it is yet another personal problem of mine but for some weird reason guitars in that price range I deem playable and the more expensive ones I think of them as showcase pieces. So THAT is why I am selling the Eastman.

    I understand fully. I don't play my two most expensive guitars as much because I always keep them in cases. Anything in case I tend to play less and worry about more.

    I do not like "wiggle sticks" not installed at the factory.
    Jerry will hold something for you for a few bucks.
    I've bought half dozen or so guitars from him & always found him extremely easy to deal with.
