Default NGD - Eastman SB59v

Got this a little while ago, but it's pretty sweet:







Eastman knows what they are doing with electrics too. It's got Lollar Imperial pickups and sounds so clear and smooth.

Congrats! Those are great guitars. I was eyeing one of those up, when I came across a used T185MX (all-solid thinline), which scratched my electric itch for now. Your SB looks fantastic!

Looks fantastic, Rob! Congrats. Are the Lollar pickups PAF based?

Thanks! Yes, they are PAF based. Excellent PUPs and it's a really well made guitar.

Congrats! Looks superb!

Top quality! I played one at a dealer recently and was very impressed. And, I own 6 Gibson CS LP reissues!

I have (3) R9s, a CR-8, a G0, and a '60 LP Special. If I didn't already have all these I would've bought the Eastman.

Thanks! It is really nice. Probably better than most Gibson LP's save for the custom shop models.

I have an Eastman T185MX, too. IMO Semi-Hollow Eastmans are an excellent value. Nice quality pickups and hradware, great workmanship, and a very comfortable neck profile.
