We love Eastman Guitars, they represent some of the best
value for money, high quality guitars around. The SB59 marks Eastman’s first
steps into the solid body game and it’s certainly a guitar that deserved to be
Inspired by the classic single cut design, the SB59 features
a one piece solid Mahogany body with Maple top. It’s a vintage combination that
provides stunning tonal results, rich and resonant it’s every bit as impressive
as its American counterparts. With Eastman’s a lush Goldtop finish it looks
authentically old school and will only continue to develop with further use.
The one piece Mahogany neck boasts a slick Ebony
fingerboard, 12″ radius, 24.5″ scale length, 22 frets and cream
binding. Smooth and well balanced it offers easy access right up the neck,
perfect for lead runs.
Loaded with a pair of
Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers, the SB59 delivers classic tones for a wide range
of styles and settings. Whether you’re a blues player, jazzer or classic rock
tone fiend, the SB59 can provide knockout tones above and beyond what you would
expect from a guitar of this price. It’s a real winner. While their name may
not carry the same weight as other more established manufacturers, the quality
of their guitars certainly does!
