  1. Versatile and well built

    Posted by Kevin M. on 7th May 2015

    I've always been interested in this model. I have a few Eastwood Guitars. All are excellent value for the money, well built and interesting.

    The Airline 3P DLX may look strange, but it is part of its charm.

    A friend of mine had test drove one a while back and did not like it, citing it sounded "mushy".

    I recently told him maybe he should buy a decent amp because to me, the pickups sparkled nicely.

    The guitar has good sustain, the neck is easy to play and everything feels like good quality.

    The tone pots add a subtle ability to control tone. They adjust tone, but you don't get that really wide spectrum you do with some. Personally, I like that.

    Design-wise, the tone and volume knobs are positioned in an odd place. You can see that going in - it is not a surprise.
    I thought that would be a problem, in that maybe they would get in the way or be in an awkward place for making adjustments. I did not find them in the way, however, the position (modeled after the original) does take a little getting used to if you need to make adjustments while playing.

    Honestly, I really like this guitar. I am very pleased that I bought it. Sure, it looks like some sort of prehistoric bird and has a lot of knobs and such, but it is fun.

    It also looks much nicer in person than in photo's. I bought it in white and I am happy I did. It makes the snot green tuning pegs pop. That is not a mean comment. They look really cool.

    Keep up the good work, Eastwood!
