About the Eastman El Rey ER1 Otto D’Ambrosio Signature:
Our Signature Archtops honor both our tradition of building handcrafted instruments and the artists and luthiers who put their names on them. There’s no greater honor than being trusted to build guitars that meet the standards of legends like John Pisano or master builders like Ryan Thorell.
The first archtops were made to accompany orchestras and provide a chunking rhythm that was felt more than heard. By those standards what our hollow bodies do today is quite different. Our vision for the archtop is to maintain traditional build methods while providing a new sound and image that appeals to players of multiple musical disciplines.
All of our stringed instruments are built in workshops in Beijing by an expert team of luthiers and craftsmen.
