Eastman T486B-BD Semi-Hollowbody Electric  -  Natural w/ Bigsby

Straight from Eastman's booth at the Nashville NAMM Show—one of their finest guitars!

Eastman’s T486B-SB takes an already-outstanding guitar and gives it even more attitude with the addition of 2 Seymour Duncan Phat Cat single-coil pickups and a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece. With 2 x Alnico 2-bar magnets and metal covers, the Phat Cats offer more sustain, more bite and less noise than standard P-90s. 

This center-block 16” thinline offers features normally found on guitars costing 2-3 times as much (at least!). In addition to the stunning flame maple laminate top, back and sides, the T486B-SB features a thin nitrocellulose finish for maximum resonance. The neck is solid, 3-piece maple, with ebony fretboard and split-block parallelogram inlays. The body, neck and headstock are bound in a multi-ply ivoroid, and chrome hardware gives the guitar plenty of shine without going over the top.

While we appreciate American-made guitars as much as anyone (and this Eastman definitely pays homage to the finest Kalamazoo models), we still like to offer our customers value—and these well-constructed, carefully detailed guitars from one of China’s oldest stringed-instrument makers are simply hard to beat for quality and price. Hardshell case included.
