Eastman SB59/v-RB - RedBurst Antique Varnish

Back to List
SKU: SB59VRB-5282


Eastman SB59/v-RB  -  Red Burst

In a world of Dirty Lemons, Iced Teas and other faded reissues, Eastman brings back the original red-rimmed beauty of those first glorious ‘bursts, and gives it their antique varnish treatment.

Based on another iconic ’59, the SB59/v features a solid flame maple top over a 1-piece mahogany body. The instrument features Eatman’s thin, hand-applied Red Burst antique varnish finish for superior tone, appearance and aging. The neck is solid mahogany with an ebony fretboard and pearl crown inlays—very playable, but with a comfortable heft.

A pair of Lollar Custom Aged Imperial Humbucking pickups gives the SB59/v all the attack, sustain and focused midrange you expect from a maple/mahogany classic. And aged nickel Gotoh hardware matches the guitar’s well-travelled appearance with dependable, modern functionality.

We’re big fans of the original American favorite, but for the money, these SB59/v models from Eastman are awfully hard to beat. A hardshell case is included.
