Eastman T486B-RD 'Cherry Red' Electric Guitar

Introducing the Eastman T486 'Classic Finish' Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar, a remarkable tribute to Gibson's iconic ES-335 with the unmistakable touch of Eastman craftsmanship. This guitar stands as a testament to exceptional design and stunning aesthetics, featuring a lustrous semi-translucent amber nitrocellulose lacquer finish that beautifully showcases the laminated flame maple top. With extraordinary attention to detail and timeless looks, the T486 embodies both versatility and style.

The T486 'Classic Finish' version boasts a resonant semi-hollow body design, skillfully executed with a full 16-inch lower bout and a slightly shorter 24.75-inch scale length. Its 1 3/4-inch bone nut ensures comfort and precision, inviting you to explore your musical journey with ease. The ebony fingerboard, adorned with elegant pearl split block inlays, houses 22 frets and a 12-inch radius, facilitating effortless playability across the fretboard.

Elevating its sonic capabilities, the T486 incorporates a pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers, lending it a classic voice that's rich and expressive. This guitar excels not only in tone but also in its feedback-resistant design, a hallmark of Eastman craftsmanship.

The meticulously designed body top, back, and sides are made from deluxe flamed maple laminate, showcasing Eastman's dedication to premium materials. The single-acting truss rod ensures precise adjustments to suit your playing preferences, while the Gotoh GE101A tailpiece and GE103B-T-N Tuneomatic bridge provide rock-solid stability and intonation accuracy.

Complemented by nickel hardware and a glossy finish, the T486's visual allure is matched by its sonic excellence. Whether your musical journey leads you through rock, jazz, blues, country, or beyond, this guitar is a versatile companion that shines in any ensemble or solo performance.
