Eastman Guitars has collaborated with legendary guitarist Ray Benson on a signature and custom model guitar, the Thinline T486-RB, faithfully built to his exact specifications. A nine-time Grammy Award winner, founder and frontman of the revered country western swing band Asleep At The Wheel, Benson has released more than 25 studio and live albums over the last four decades. As a producer, Benson has worked with an impressive who’s-who A-list including Willie Nelson, Aaron Neville, Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins, Merle Haggard, Carolyn Wonderland, and Vince Gill. His latest project, a solo album titled A Little Piece, was released earlier this year.

This Eastman T486 RB Thinline is a killer electric guitar no matter what style of music you play – it’s built with stellar craftsmanship and loaded with Lollar humbuckers. Here with a Deluxe Laminate Maple body with double cutaway and a full block, it’s resonant, warm and rocking. Beautiful details are from stem to stern including Ivoroid binding throughout, and a Deluxe Maple neck that’s super comfortable. The fingerboard is Ebony which sounds and feels great, and the slightly shorter 24 3/4″ scale is the perfect fit for these rockers that handle jazz just as deftly as blues, country and whatever ever you can throw it’s way. This is an incredibly versatile guitar.

Featuring a transparent, matte red finish, it’s a full-sized 16″ thinline, and has a rhythm guitarist-suited 1 3/4″ nut width, although soloing feels just as good. And playing through its dual Lollar humbuckers is hard to surpass tone-wise. They can really get you any kind of tone imaginable. The Eastman T486 RB Thinline is a great all-purpose guitar that offers a wide range of tones, an incredible build and great feel all at a great price. Includes a full setup from one of our luthiers, and a hardshell case.
