Eastman T486-GB 'Gold Burst' Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar

Presenting the Eastman T486-GB 'Gold Burst' Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar, an embodiment of exceptional craftsmanship and classic design. Drawing inspiration from Gibson's timeless ES-335, this instrument is a testament to Eastman's commitment to producing instruments of unparalleled quality and stunning aesthetics.

The T486-GB boasts a captivating appearance with its thin, semi-translucent amber nitrocellulose lacquer finish, revealing the intricate beauty of the laminated flame maple top. Complemented by a deluxe maple neck, this guitar guarantees an exceptionally comfortable playing experience. The carefully selected materials and meticulous attention to detail ensure that every note played resonates with unmatched clarity and character.

This semi-hollow electric guitar's construction includes a full 16-inch lower bout, creating a well-balanced body that's versatile across various genres. The 24 3/4" scale length, coupled with the 1 3/4" bone nut, enhances playability and facilitates effortless fretting and bending. The ebony fingerboard, adorned with pearl split block inlays, provides a smooth surface for your fingers to navigate.

Equipped with Seymour Duncan humbuckers, the T486-GB delivers a classic voice that's warm, full, and ready to explore a spectrum of tones. The carefully positioned pickups perfectly complement the guitar's feedback-resistant design, allowing you to unleash your creativity with confidence.

The hardware on this guitar is a fusion of functionality and aesthetics, with nickel-finished components adding a touch of vintage flair. The Gotoh GE101A tailpiece and GE103B-T-N Tuneomatic bridge provide stability and sustain, while the PingWell RM-1239NV tuners ensure precise tuning.

The Eastman T486-GB 'Gold Burst' Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar also pays homage to classic design elements, featuring an ivoroid binding on the pickguard and body, along with a pearl logo and pearl split block parallelogram inlays.

This guitar comes complete with a hardshell case, ensuring that your investment is protected while you embark on your musical journey. Whether you're diving into rock, jazz, blues, country, or any other genre that strikes your fancy, the T486-GB is a versatile companion that will impress both in solo performances and ensemble settings. Experience the harmonious blend of aesthetics and functionality, and join the ranks of musicians who trust Eastman for their sonic endeavors.
