Picked these 2 up to go with their cousin I got last week. Bit overkill for me TBH but it was a deal I could not pass up.

thanks. its a pretty killer guitar but they all are. That solid top hollowbody is a really unique guitar and I would put the LP against any non custom shop Gibby. ITs pretty killer. Ill end up selling off one of the 3 as I do not need 5 electric guitars and I have my custom tele and I have a strat being built similiar to my tele with gold lace sensors and a gold anodized pickguard. Smile

They look brilliant

Been looking closely at the T386 and others. I like the block inlays and Bigsby of the T486B, but it comes with P90s.

They are great guitars. I am fortunate because I have a direct relationship with them. I am not an endorsee per se but I've become friends with the guys at the Pomona, Ca headquarters (guitars are built in China but the Eastman US headquarters is near me) so I get some great deals.

I have had a 486B. I bought it as the same time as this 386. I knew when I bought both I would sell one one. I ended up selling one to a good friend and I let him pick which one.

I have about 10 eastmans.

If you ever make it back here Ill nick one for you to take home. lol. They wont miss one from their warehouse will they?

I have to say though, I would nto hesitate to order one site unseen. I am the point now where besides my custom built tele (and a similar custom strat being built now) all my instruments are Eastman.

I managed to finally fill my hollow body desires with an Eastman last year. Easily the best guitar of its type that I’ve played. I’m not sure if the model I have. It’s like a 355 with parallelograms and SD Phat 90s.

Absolutely phenomenal guitars. I had a chance of a Gibson at the same time and the quality of the Eastman was far better. Third of the price too.

That is a t486B. When I bought mine, I actually bought both but knew I was only going to keep one. I let a friend pick which one he wanted to because they were both great. Everything I have from them (and I have alot) is exceptional for the price. I will buy my e10ss against anything short of a custom shop j45....

You wont go wrong. IF I told you what I paid for my 386 you'd probably freak... It was a backstock at the US warehouse (which is like an hour from me). I think I got it for like 450 USD The 486 was like $500 USD. Brand new with cases...

I know Richards Guitars in the UK has a large Eastman stock.

Man that's a killer deal! Eastman's are great guitars. A T186mx was my main guitar back when I was in music college.

I'm a big fan of the El Rey models too! They're the closest sounding/feeling guitars to an archtop in a smaller form factor I've played.

The El Rey is it's own thing. Really cool guitar. Im probably going to sell on the 386. I bought the 386 and LP as a package deal and knew I'd probably sell one on. I rarely play electric live anyways and have my custom tele, the El Rey, and the LP. I am also having a custom strat built. I just do not need the 386 and it is my least "favorite" of them though it is a great guitar...

I also recently got the El Rey mandolin which is really cool (though I need to learn to p-lay mando now...)
