Collings Guitars seems to be the company that put varnished guitars on the radar for acoustic players (at a $2000 charge for the varnish). Eastman has taken that to heart and produced most models of acoustic and electric in varnish. The results are a louder, more resonant guitar, a more vintage sounding guitar. $1599 list, $1279 MAP. Sold. Click for more photos. Eastman E10SS/v specs webpage.
