Instruments from the Ling Wang workshop, located in a small section of Eastman's Beijing facility, receive the special attention of their most experienced and gifted master luthiers. These luthiers focus their expertise and experience on the creation of Eastman's professional models. The Ling Wang models employ the latest advances in the technique of plate tuning, a method that helps makers fine-tune the graduations of the top and back plates to get the best possible sound from each unique piece of wood. Eastman's research into old master instruments, texts, and technical experiments come together in the creation of some of the finest workshop instruments available today.
This model combines all the benefits of Eastman's top luthiers' plate tuning techniques with the special German-style multi-layer shaded spirit varnish also found on Eastman's model 405 instruments. The result is a modestly priced master instrument with outstanding projection, tone color, and playability, not to mention beautiful flamed maple and premium European spruce tonewoods enhanced by the luminous hand-applied varnish.
