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.

The Bighorn is an awesome guitar. I am very (very) pleased with it.
This guitar has some real punch to it. The two pickups have great volume, really nice tone.
I find that the fit and finish on the Bighorn is a little better than the BobKat I ordered at the same time. It must be a different production line.
The frets on the Bighorn were dressed and finished properly which was a relief.
This guitar is a pleasure to play, the action was set perfectly from the factory, I didn't need to change a thing. It is good to know the intonation is adjustable.
The first Bighorn I received had a muffed-up fret board. The rosewood was a little knotty and there was a split and sliver that was not polished out and would have left slivers if anyone had actually played it. I'm not sure how this one ever left the factory with the QC issues on the fret board but it all worked out OK.
Eastwood sent a prompt replacement and the new replacement Bighorn was perfect.
The guitar plays well, sounds great, and was a raging bargain.
I highly recommend this guitar. You'll enjoy it very much.
