When John designed the Pisano series of guitars for Eastman, he was able to draw upon decades of experience as a player as well as a deep knowledge of archtop guitar construction which he gleaned from his association with Bob Benedetto, John Monteleone, and John D'Angelico.

The result is an affordable instrument that incorporates the finest materials and lutherie know-how into a guitar that is both sonically satisfying and visually stunning. The AR880CE features a carved spruce top, maple back, sides and neck, and an ebony fingerboard. Both functional and stylish, it is outfitted with an attractive Pisano style tailpiece, Schaller tuners with ebony buttons, wood volume and tone knobs, and an ebony pickguard.

The mounted Kent Armstrong humbucker produces a rich, dark tone that sounds almost acoustic in its definition and clarity, yet is very feedback resistant allowing for high volume playing.
