Eastwood announce the Airline ’59 Coronado

Posted 22 Sep 2011 in Gear News, Press Releases

Eastwood Guitars have announced a new member of the ’59 Custom family; the rather delightful looking Airline ’59 Coronado.Here’s what their press release has to say about it.

The ’59 Coronado has a striking white body with black rubber binding, offset with white binding on a black headstock – a tribute to the vintage Supro® model used by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. This is a stylish guitar with a zero fret for super fast low action and a Bigsby® for solid rock fun.

The Airline ’59 Coronado is a 25 ½” scale guitar with a toned chambered Mahogany body, rubber body binding and a bolt-on bound Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard and block markers. This guitar is built with quality, featuring a TonePros® Roller Bridge, a Bigsby® tremolo and Wilkinson® Tuners. It also features a 3-way vintage switch plate, two Alnico Hot-10 Humbuckers, dual volume / tone controls and includes the deluxe custom Airline Hardshell Case.

“I own many original Airline® and Supro® guitars from the 1960’s, so it’s great to see bands like The Black Keys putting them to good use,” said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars. “However, prices of the originals continue to skyrocket, so we are very pleased to offer our ’59 Custom line that most guitar players can afford. In the process we’ve upgrade and improved many of the features, resulting in far better quality guitars that the originals at less than half the price.”
