A cap-less one-piece Okoume mahogany solid body delivers a lightweight playing experience without sacrificing an ounce of tone. The Antique Varnish finish found on the SB55/v-SB brings the guitars visual and tonal beauty to the forefront. Eastman's Antique Varnish finish is smoother than lacquer, with the thinner layer of varnish from their violin shop allowing for a fuller, more wide-open resonant sound that gives these instruments a truly unique voice.

The one piece Mahogany neck boasts a rich Ebony fingerboard with a 12" radius, 22 Jescar FW47104-P frets and a 24.75" scale length. This neck is super comfortable to play, perfect for huge chugging riffs or lush lead playing.

The SB55/v-SB model feature a Lollar 50s Spec P90 in the bridge position. The lower output pickup produces a brighter and more defined tone with less distortion, creating room for more chordal articulation and playing subtleties to come through. This is perfect for players looking for a warm and growling sound that doesn't sacrifice the details.

Premium Faber hardware, including a compensated Faber bridge for perfect intonation, provides the incredibly functional playing experience every player looks to find. The SB55/v-SB feature a no-load tone pot that bypasses itself from the signal chain when set to 10. When set below 10, it acts as a standard tone pot.

This guitar is full of vintage tone and feel and has so much character. You need to check this out.
