Eastman DT30OM Double Top Guitar Pre Owned
This near mint condition Pre Owned OM body version Eastman DT30 OM features a remarkable and much lauded build design producing maximum tone from the top of the guitar by utilising a very clever honeycomb style core material. Its well worth doing some independent research and checking out impartial reviews, but we can report our findings are this fantastic guitar sounds absolutely stunning. The lightest of touches sets in motion a well balanced full tonal character that can go head to head with the best of them and come out on top, in fact double top! Make no mistake these are not plywood topped guitars, so don't confuse the double Top build to be anything other than a premium high end outstanding sounding hand crafted acoustic.Some further details about this model - The DT30 OM's soundboard is a three-layer construction, but it’s certainly not plywood. Instead, we have two very thin layers of Sitka spruce sandwiching a Nomex ‘honeycomb’ core. The idea is to achieve a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than is possible with a single spruce layer – Eastman claims that its double tops are 30 per cent lighter than conventional tops.
The concept comes from the classical-guitar world and was introduced during the 1980s by German luthier Matthias Dammann. DuPont developed Nomex as a lightweight, flame-resistant material for the aviation industry and honeycombed sheets are used by luthiers. Latterly, steel-string acoustic builders have begun to use double tops too. Herringbone purfling surrounds the top and an abalone rosette complements the intricate fingerboard and headstock inlays. In keeping with the classic appointments, bone is used for the nut and compensated saddle, and there’s a set of gold-plated Gotoh SX510 open-geared tuners.
