Hand crafted by a small team of luthiers, Eastman Guitars
deliver incredible quality at a much lower price point than their comparable
Drawing inspiration from the classic hollowbody design of
the ’50s, the Eastman T59/V features a laminate Maple top, back and sides for a
lightweight but sonically rich tone. With the famed Eastman Antique Red finish
the wood is able to breathe freely, delivering a naturally resonant and organic
sound. This labour intensive process produces a finish even thinner than
lacquer for the best tonal response.
The Maple neck has a sweet Ebony fingerboard that benefits
from 22 Medium Jumbo frets, a 24.75″ scale length and 12″ radius.
With split parallelogram inlays it has a real vintage vibe. It feels smooth,
comfortable and familiar.
Pickups come courtesy of Seymour Duncan with a pair of
Antiquity humbuckers you get a smooth, articulate tone with a warm low end and
a super responsive high end. With unbelievable clarity and harmonic content
these are some of the finest pickups in the Seymour Duncan arsenal.
With a hardshell case included the Eastman range represents
incredible value for money.
