She's a beauty, been looking at the Eastman's with the violin finish looks very nice. Let us know how she sounds.

Sweet, I own an older Eastman (486) similar to yours with sunburst finish. Sounds like yours has different pickups but otherwise look very similar. I really like mine and play it a lot. Love the finish and grain on yours.

Wow...stunner! My Reverb feed is filled with Eastman. For the money they seem like a really good option....really similar to an ES-335

Congrats! Played an kinda aged les paulish Eastman. Very nice guitar but a bit pricey.

That's a nice finish. I see almost no Eastmans in the flesh, but in pics they sure look to have the aging process down in a manner that I like a lot. I really hate the overdone aging/relic-ing that individuals can't seem to resist -- so overdone and bogus! -- but Eastman really manages to enhance the luster of coloration of its aged guitars, and to soften edges minimally but very attractively. That looks like a flat-out great, great guitar. Enjoy it.

She sounds awesome. She's a little brighter sounding than a Gibby 335 due to the three piece maple neck and ebony fingerboard. I'm in love. :cool2:

I just heard one in action for the first time.
The other guitar player had a custom job with a Lollar CC pickup, and I liked the sound of the Eastman better.
Super rich and dynamic.
Real sleepers, these.
