Eastman SB55/v-SB Sunburst Varnish Electric Guitar #12755802

$ 1359.00

Single cutaway, single pickup, solid body electric from Eastman in antique varnish with a Lollar 50’s Spec Dog Ear P-90.

Eastman definitely shows that less is more with their new SB55/v line. The capless body and single Lollar P90 bring out the tone and resonance of the Okoume body without leaving you wanting more. A compensated bridge, no load tone pot, and lower output allow for the every detail of the sound to come out perfectly clear. The SB55/v has quickly become a shop favorite, and we’re sure you’ll feel the same.

Raw Refinement

A cap-less one-piece Okoume mahogany solid body delivers a lightweight playing experience without sacrificing an ounce of tone. The Antique Varnish finish found on both the SB55/v-SB and SB55DC/v brings the guitars’ visual and tonal beauty to the forefront. Our Antique Varnish finish is smoother than lacquer, with the thinner layer of varnish from our violin shop allowing for a fuller, more wide-open resonant sound that gives these instruments a truly unique voice.

Both the SB55/v-SB and SB55DC/v models feature a Lollar “50’s Spec” P90 in the bridge position. The lower output pickup produces a brighter and more defined tone with less distortion, creating room for more chordal articulation and playing subtleties to come through. This is perfect for players looking for a warm and growling sound that doesn’t sacrifice the details.

Premium Faber hardware, including a compensated Faber bridge for perfect intonation, provides the incredibly functional playing experience every player looks to find. The SB55/v-SB and SB55DC/v feature a no-load tone pot that bypasses itself from the signal chain when set to 10. When set below 10, it acts as a standard tone pot.
