Includes Rich's "Plays like butter" set up with that great jazz tone and his custom gauge strings.
The AR372ce with its double Kent Armstrong designed Humbuckers, comes as close to the Gibson 175 as you can get but has a unique voice of it's own. The bridge pickup offers more tone variations than a single pickup design. It also to avoid the top from feeding back and gives the guitar a little more electric (ala Wes Montgomery) sound. The larger nut size of the Eastmans makes fingerstyle playing easier. You can't go wrong with this one.
