This Eastman SB59/v-AMB Solid Body Electric w/ Hardshell Case has been gently owned and is in excellent condition with a few minor cosmetic imperfections. Some scarring at the treble side bout and lower bout can be detected and scratches on the headstock can also be found. Being a relic-ed guitar, these flaws do not detract from the beauty of the instrument. If anything, they only add to its aesthetic appeal! Looks, plays and sounds fantastic! Original hardshell case is in overall excellent shape with a few noticeable, but normal scuffs. We ask that you observe its pictures closely and invite you to contact us with any questions you may have.
Our first solid body guitar… with Eastman’s signature written all over it.
The SB59/v has the look, feel, and tone, of a 58-year-old guitar. We also offer a gloss version finished in nitro cellulose. Solid body models feature a hand-carved solid flamed maple top, on a solid mahogany body. The Gotoh hardware and Seymour Duncan Antiquity humbuckers on the SB59/v and Seymour Duncan ’59 humbuckers on the SB59 complete one of our hardest rocking instruments to date.
SB59/v ANTIQUE AMBER
A single cutaway with a one piece solid Mahogany back and a solid flame maple top. Dual Seymour Duncan Antiquities and our signature Antique Varnish make this our most rocking instrument yet.
ANTIQUE VARNISH SERIES
This line of guitars is built on a mix of time-honored craft and ahead-of-the-curve thinking utilizing classic technique with a decidedly fresh approach. It is designed to make such a rare and labor-intensive feature more available to guitar enthusiasts, with the proof in the distinctive look and sound.
The process itself, features six distinct steps starting with a basecoat application to fill the grain, then moving to color application, and concluding with a French polish. Ultimately, three or four coats of material are applied and sanded thin. The result is softer than lacquer, creating a smoother tone.
We have also added Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups and aged Gotoh hardware to make it possible to own a brand-new, vintage feeling, “antique” instrument fresh out of our workshop.
