The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Eastman SB59_V Solidbody Black, 2020


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

Here we have a nearly new Eastman SB59_V single cutaway, carved top solidbody with all the features that make this model one of the best deals going.

The Eastman SB59_V reflects the classic late 1950s design for a single cutaway, Flamed Maple on Mahogany solidbody with humbucking pickups. While it follows the formula, it’s not a precise copy and Eastman uses their own designs. As a ‘Vintage’ style model, this guitar has undergone an treatment process to simulate the wear of decades of use – except for fretwear.

Starting with the basics, the Eastman SB59_V uses a Mahogany slab body with a carved, bookmatched Flame Maple cap. A Mahogany with a long mortise and tenon joint carries a bound Ebony fingerboard. Hardware is top quality, starting with Gotoh vintage Kluson style tuners, nickel plated Gotoh adjustable bridge and stop tailpiece. The pickups are Lollar Custom Aged/Wound Imperial Humbuckers, wired through a Switchcraft 3-way switch, plus CTS 500K Audio Taper pots for individual volume and tone controls with Sprague Orange Drop Capacitors. The wiring is very cleanly done.

The Eastman SB59_V here was built during the early part of 2020 carries the Antique Varnish Black Top finish.   As it has been through an ‘antiquing’ process, the finish shows the wear you’d expect from decades of use, while other wear to the frets or nickel plating is negligible. 

This guitar is sold with the original Eastman hard shell case.
