Eastman T486-BRD Semi-Hollow Bigsby Electric Guitar Classic

Eastman T486-BRD Semi-Hollow Bigsby Electric Guitar Classic  – The Eastman T486B Thinline Classic is the kind of guitar you want to pick up and play, every time you walk by it, and not only due to its incredible nitrocellulose classic finish. Think of it as a guitarist’s Swiss Army knife – it can handle nearly any genre that you throw at it, from  blues, to jazz, rock, country, or rockabilly. It’s no wonder the Eastman T486B is so versatile, with a deluxe laminated maple body and top, an ebony fretboard on a maple neck, Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, and a pair of Seymour Duncan Phat Cat pickups. These pickups add the thickness and warmth of P-90 tones, perfectly complementing the feedback-resistant design of this thinline hollowbody.

The tightly compressed laminate woods of Eastman’s laminated maple bodies and tops dampen down overtones created by solid woods, and lend themselves to perfect tone production in louder environments. Every one of Eastman’s laminated thinlines has a center block that runs the length of the body right down the center, which aids in the suppression of feedback and reinforces the top.

At Music Machine, we think the Eastman T486B is an incredibly well-constructed and versatile instrument, loaded with high quality tone woods, electronics and hardware, at a truly competitive price.

Eastman Guitars are fine handmade instruments at very reasonable prices. Their archtops and flat tops are made with solid, hand-carved tops, backs, and sides. They offer many of the traditional archtop styles in their Uptown series with options of different woods, dimensions, and pickups. The Thinline series, the El Rey and the Jon Pisano signature line offer some great alternatives, and feature the same kinds of customizable options. Eastman Uptown Deluxe series archtops are custom shop pieces with select AAA grade tone woods, wood binding with inlaid purfilng, and five piece necks.

For the flat top player, Eastman offers many different options in grand concert, orchestra model, grand auditorium, mini jumbo, dreadnought, and jumbo shapes. With these there are many different configurations of Sitka, Adirondack, and Englemann Spruce tops, as well as Mahogany, Rosewood, and Maple back and sides. Between all of these quality handmade instruments we are confident that there is an Eastman guitar out there for any discerning musician.
