Eastman T486-SB Semihollow - Sunburst •USED•

Back to List


Eastman T486-SB Semi-Hollowbody Electric   -   Sunburst  (USED)

This recent-issue T486-SB is in excellent condition—a beautiful guitar. There is one buckle scratch on the back (does not go through the finish) and slight finish hazing on back of the headstock. We couldn't get either to show up in photos.

The full-size T486-SB 16” thinline offers features normally found on guitars costing 2-3 times as much. In addition to the thin gloss sunburst finish, the T486-SB features flamed maple laminate top, back and sides, an ebony fretboard and 2 Seymour Duncan pickups.

The neck is solid maple; the fretboard features split-block parallelogram inlays, for a smooth feel and sophisticated look. The body and neck are bound in a multi-ply ivoroid, for an even more-polished presentation. Chrome hardware gives the guitar plenty of shine without going over the top.

Two Seymour Duncan humbuckers — a Jazz in the neck position and ’59 in the bridge — give the T486 plenty of sweet, authentic soul, depth and edge. This is one of our favorite configurations for versatility and range. Tone, tone and more tone.

While we appreciate American-made guitars as much as anyone, 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.
