Pointy guitar guys might want to hit the back button on this one. Although, if you can get into a period-correct mindset, this Airline guitar was probably somewhere on the Amp Stealer end of the spectrum back in ’59.
But I digress…if you’re a retro kind of guy or gal, you’re probably into the guitars that Eastwood has been putting out in recent years. So why not enter this guitar giveaway? From Premier Guitar, here’s your chance to win an Airline ’59 Custom 2P electric guitar, worth $1,249.

More About the Airline ’59 Custom 2P Electric Guitar
The Airline ’59 Custom 2P is based on the style of the early 60s Airline made by Valco and sold through Montgomery Ward. The original Airline’s were made of Res-O-Glas and had a floating bridge. Eastwood has upgraded the design to a tone-chambered mahogany body with a tune-o-matic bridge with a custom chrome tail. The Airline 2P features a unique rubber binding which surrounds the entire body, and replicates the esthetics of the original Airline Res-O-Glas guitars. Additional cosmetic details include a striped pickguard, aluminum tone switch plate and available NOS Valco™ knobs. It is fitted with a pair of high output Airline Vintage Voiced Single Coil pickups hidden in a Humbucker case. This guitar comes with a Vintage Style Deluxe form-fit AIRLINE hardshell case with steel plate logo.
