Eastman | Leadbetter Rabid Dog Relic | SB55/CUSTOM | Sunflower Yellow Relic


This guitar came to us as a brand spanking new Eastman sB55/v  with a hand varnished finish

Taking a guitar of this standard and giving it our “Rabid Dog Relic” treatment may seem crazy to some, but blemishes in the original hand varnished finish on these instruments made them prime candidates for us! 

Factory fitted with a USA Lollar low wind P-90 pickup plus aged wraparound tailpiece and tuning keys from Faber in Germany, there was no need to upgrade anything. The best of the best was already here. 

Custom finish

Here in the Leadbetter Guitar Co Workshop at Nepean Music we have hand sanded the varnished top coat away, and tricked it out with flower art and a relic’d TV yellow colour coat for a truly original “one off” custom finish. 


Precision setup with Dunlop 10-46 strings  by Joel in the Nepean Music Workshop.


Eastman hard shell case included. Cases have also been modified in appearance to look like a well traveled and worn in original. Cause, why not.
