Eastman SB59/v 2022 Classic Antique Varnish with Hardshell Case

$ 2239.00

In a world of Dirty Lemons, Iced Teas and other faded reissues, Eastman brings back their classic hand-rubbed finish, and gives it their antique varnish treatment.

Based on another iconic ’59, the SB59/v features a solid flame maple top over a 1-piece mahogany body. The instrument features Eastman’s thin, hand-applied Classic antique varnish finish for superior tone, appearance and aging. The neck is solid mahogany with an ebony fretboard and pearl crown inlays— very playable, but with a comfortable heft.

A pair of Lollar Custom Aged Imperial Humbucking pickups gives the SB59/v all the attack, sustain and focused midrange you expect from a maple/mahogany classic. And aged nickel Goth hardware matches the guitar’s well-travelled appearance with dependable, modern functionality.

We’re big fans of the original American favorite, but for the money, these SB59/ models from Eastman are awfully hard to beat. A hardshell case is included.
