New for 2020, Eastman SB55DC/v Antique Varnish Finish
The SB55DC/v features a cap-less one-piece Okoume mahogany solid body delivering a lightweight playing experience without sacrificing an ounce of tone. The Antique Varnish finish 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.
Both the SB55/v-SB and SB55DC/v models feature a Lollar “50’s 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.
