Francie Buckley is selling an Eastman P20 steel string parlor guitar. Francie says, “It has a solid spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides. New it goes for $1300 but I am asking $750. It is in excellent condition and comes with hard case and gig bag. It is a sweet little guitar but I am no longer playing steel string. Eastman is sort of considered to be a Martin knock off, well made and similar sound.” Please contact Francie at
