The Gold Airline 2P features a unique rubber binding that surrounds the tone chambered mahogany body. The vintage style of the pinstriped pickguard along and the chrome tone switch are tributes to the original 1959 models. With two ALNICO Hot-10 pickups, vintage tuners and the classic 25 ˝ scale this guitar is guaranteed to turn heads.
“The Airline models are the flagship brand of Eastwood” said Mike Robinson “and we are really excited to celebrate 50 years of guitar history with this stunning limited edition Metallic Gold model”.
