Eastman SB55/V-SB Electric Guitar

Introducing the Eastman SB55/V-SB Electric Guitar, a harmonious fusion of modern innovation and timeless craftsmanship. This extraordinary instrument boasts a cap-less one-piece Okoume mahogany solid body, meticulously designed to provide a lightweight playing experience without compromising on tone. The Antique Varnish finish accentuates the guitar's visual and tonal beauty, delivering a smoother texture and a more wide-open resonant sound, setting these guitars apart with their truly unique voice.

Equipped with powerful Lollar "50's Spec" P90 pickups, the SB55/V-SB ensures a rich and defined tone with reduced distortion, allowing for enhanced chordal articulation and subtle nuances to shine through. This makes it a perfect choice for players seeking warm, growling tones that preserve intricate details in their playing.

Premium Faber hardware, including a compensated Faber bridge for impeccable intonation, elevates the playing experience to new heights. The SB55/V-SB features a no-load tone pot that bypasses itself from the signal chain at 10, offering a standard tone pot experience when set below 10. With a neck crafted from one-piece Okoume and an Ebony fingerboard, this guitar exudes playability and comfort, while the Pearl Eastman logo and Pearl Dot inlays add a touch of sophistication.

With an Antique Varnish top coat finish and Antique Nickel hardware, the SB55/V-SB exudes timeless elegance. The Custom Bakalite pickguard and Bakalite backplates further add to the guitar's allure. Premium Gotoh Relic Series strap pegs and Faber Kluson-style tuners enhance the instrument's functionality and vintage charm.

The Eastman SB55/V-SB Electric Guitar's impressive specs extend to its electronics, featuring .022 Sprague Orange Drop capacitors and CTS 500K No-Load on the Tone potentiometers. The Lollar 50's Spec Dog Ear P-90 bridge pickup, expertly set at 11mm height, ensures the guitar's sound is truly captivating.

Experience the versatility and artistry of the Eastman SB55/V-SB Electric Guitar at Acoustic Centre, Melbourne's premier music store and guitar haven. Encased in a sturdy hardshell case, this instrument is ready to accompany you on every musical journey.

    One of the finest purchasing experiences I’ve ever had. The guitar literally shipped 30 mins after I ordered it and arrived well packaged in 3 days ( and that was with the free standard shipping). I would definitely purchase again from the acoustic centre. I’m very happy with guitar also - plays and sounds great.
