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. This one (#5613) has one of the darkest versions of the Classic finish we've seen, but it's a stunner. 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 Gotoh 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.

*The finish on this model is distressed at the factory. It has small dings and dents, intentionally designed to replicate the appearance of an older, used instrument, and each one is slightly different. We don’t try to hide these “imperfections’ in our photographs, but we also don’t shoot closeups of each one. If a distressed finish bothers you, do not order this guitar.
