Introducing the Eastman T486B Electric Guitar, a masterfully crafted and affordably priced tribute to Gibson's iconic semi-hollow ES-335. This guitar is a remarkable gem that strikes a perfect balance between performance and value. With its stunning appearance and Deluxe Laminate Maple construction finished in a thin nitrocellulose lacquer, the T486B boasts style and substance. The Maple neck, featuring a deluxe profile, offers exceptional playability, and the addition of a pair of Seymour Duncan Phat-Cat humbuckers provides it with a unique P-90 voice that's both thick and well-suited to the feedback-resistant design of the thinline body. The legendary Bigsby vibrato tailpiece adds a touch of classic rockabilly charm.

The T486B is a semi-hollow electric guitar that features a full 16-inch lower bout, a slightly shorter 24 3/4-inch scale length, and a 1 3/4-inch bone nut. The Ebony fingerboard is adorned with pearl split block inlays and hosts 22 frets, harmonizing beautifully with the tunable chrome Gotoh bridge. Whether you're drawn to rock, jazz, blues, country, or rockabilly, the T486B's versatility shines through, offering an ideal canvas for your musical creativity. Each facet of this guitar showcases careful attention to detail and craftsmanship, making it an excellent companion for a wide array of genres.

Encased in a hardshell case, the T486B Electric Guitar provides both protection and portability, ensuring your instrument stays safe while you venture into new musical territory.

Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument.
