  1. Love it

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Aug 2016

    This guitar is super charming and I love the tone.
    Hard to put down! The Airline/Eastwood folks are great to deal with.

  2. Awesome Guitar!!

    Posted by Dave on 25th Jan 2016

    The guitar itself is just what I wanted - a resonator acoustic sound that is not overly loud, with a great variety of sounds available through the blended pickups. The slim-line body makes it comfortable to play, I love the color (blue) , the feel, the ergonomics, the slightly shorter scale, the low action.
    Customer service has been exemplary via the online chat sessions.
    It was shipped out the same day I ordered it.
    All for a very reasonable price.
    What's not to love?

  3. Airline Folkstar - Red

    A Beauty in my hands !

  4. A Beast of a different color

    What a great guitar! the resonator provides this characteristic tone. Old school sound and the dial a tone knob brings the resonator from full on to just the humbucker tone. slim line body is very easy to play action is low enough to easy to play finger style yet will hold up to slide play. Love this guitar!

  5. Perfect for blues!

    I was looking for a resonator-type guitar, that can handle feedback, and obviouly, with a good sound. This guitar fullfils all those items!

    Great sound, love the pickup blending! Acoutic sound also is very nice. Used to play live and its very easy to handle (no feedback problems!)

    Finally, the look...well...just awesome vintage look! Love the body binding!

  6. Great instrument, best of both worlds.

    I bought the Blue Folkstar. It's built well and is fun to couch pick unplugged as well. Into an amp or PA it's money. The pickup control enables you to dial in a thick resonator tone as well as a very believable acoustic resonator sound. I'm tuned to open D and slide sounds real nice too. Lots of versatility in this guitar and it looks fantastic. Got a lot of compliments on it. This is my second instrument through Eastwood and their service/shipping is first rate.
