Eastman T59/v Antique Amber


Eastman T59/v Antique Amber

This line of guitars is built on a mix of time-honored craft and ahead-of-the-curve thinking utilizing classic technique with a decidedly fresh approach. It is designed to make such a rare and labor-intensive feature more available to guitar enthusiasts, with the proof in the distinctive look and sound.

The process itself, features six distinct steps starting with a basecoat application to fill the grain, then moving to color application, and concluding with a French polish. Ultimately, three or four coats of material are applied and sanded thin. The result is softer than lacquer, creating a smoother tone.

We have also added Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers brushed nickel classics, and aged Gotoh hardware to make it possible to own a brand-new, vintage feeling, “antique” instrument fresh out of our workshop.
