Eastman Guitars

When it comes to building a guitar, there is a big difference between assembly and artistry. If history has taught us anything, it is that there is no substitute for skilled craftsmanship. At Eastman, each instrument is given the attention to detail required to ensure that it reaches its maximum potential. Features such as hand-scalloped bracing and precision tap tuning are just two examples of the way we differentiate ourselves. Considering the outward beauty of an Eastman Guitar, it’s often easy to overlook the skill and artistry applied to the inside of such a fine instrument.

The Beginning

Eastman's Owner

As an accomplished flutist from Beijing, Qian Ni founded Eastman Strings in 1992 after graduating from the Boston University School of Music. He never imagined that over the course of 25 years, the company would grow from a small business operated out of the back of his car into a global maker of musical instruments.

"As a musician, I founded our company with the hope of providing world class instruments for musicians. I personally enjoy the process of working with our luthiers and production team nearly every day to develop new products and improve what we currently manufacture. Eastman is a family business, and I feel very honored to be able to be part of such a wonderful company." - Qian Ni

These time-honored yet humble beginnings keep them grounded as the Eastman family grows into their third decade of service, supplying the world with the finest instruments. From their skilled luthiers who painstakingly carve carefully selected woods, to the team who hand varnish and age the Antique Varnish Series, their guitar & mandolin craftsmanship is rooted in the same obsession  to build the best violin, violas, cellos, and basses.  They will continue to provide the same responsive service and outstanding products that have helped them emerge as a leader in the world of modern instruments.

Committed to the Craft

From Antique Varnish Series to the new Custom Edition, we are committed to crafting the finest instruments for musicians throughout the world.  Visit Newell's Music to hear for yourself.

We received our first shipment of Eastman guitars at the end of 2020 and we were completely blown away by the quality of each and every guitar. We've received several more shipments from them since and we are still highly impressed with the craftmanship of all of these guitars. Easily one of the best guitar brands that we have ever carried in our store.
