One of the early "student" guitars found in North American Catalogs in the 1960s. This model was available under the brands of Airline, Supro, Kay and many others. This new Eastwood release is based on the original 1960′s AIRLINE Bighorn, it features an updated adjustable bridge, truss rod and the modern popular Diamond Argyle single coil pickups.

It's small, it's light, it sounds great. What's not to like? I bought one last year (2014) and I like it a lot. One of the drawbacks of solid-body electrics is that they're typically heavy, but not this one – about 7 pounds, and I have an Ovation acoustic-electric that's within a pound or so of that. The look is a little unusual, but I like it for that reason, and c'mon – if you wanted the usual, you wouldn't be here on the Eastwood website anyway. That big cutout makes it easy to get to the upper frets, and an "old-fashioned" vibe from the pickups doesn't hurt. Especially at 35% off for a close-out, this is an excellent value for a guitarist on a serious budget.
