I prefer the look of the Epi tbh. I may be a philistine.

Have spent the past 18 months gassing for teles. And today suddenly it's gone, and left an empty feeling.

I never learn. I had an excellent 335 style and never bonded with it. Doesn't seem to stop me wanting this though. :roll:

Interesting... if the specs quoted are correct, this one has a 1 3/4" nut. That's more commonly found in fingerstyle acoustics!

Perfect for my sausage fingers.

There is much interesting about Eastmans. Being free of brand insecurity opens up a fascinating world.

Love that, it's a cracker for sure. I would be really hesitant about shipping it up from the mainland though.

It is. I'm gassing for a semi too. I had one of these that I regret selling - it was sublime. If anyone knows it whereabouts.....

From what I’ve seen of heritage, I’d say they are as good. But with some subtle differences, such as wider fretboards, and thinner finishes...they relic up real fast. If that’s not your thing, I’d look elsewhere.
