Musikmesse 2014: Eastwood unveils new Airline '59 Newport

Eastwood revives much sought after late '50s Airline model

MUSIKMESSE 2014: Eastwood has unveiled the new Airline '59 Newport in time for Musikmesse 2014.

Based on the National Newport Val-Pro 88, a much sought after model from the late '50s, the Airline '59 Newport features a lightweight tone-chambered mahogany body, bolt-on bound mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and zero fret, two NY Mini Humbuckers and a piezo bridge pickup.

There are also several hundred controls - which translate into volume and tone controls for each pickup option - which look pretty natty and give players access to huge number of tonal options. If you don't believe us, watch RJ Ronquillo in the demo video above.
