Airline® Guitars were made in the USA from 1958-68 by VALCO and sold through Montgomery Ward. VALCO also made National and SUPRO brands. The original Folkstar resonator guitar did not have pickups, this modern professional model adds two pickups and a blend switch for versatile stage use.

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.

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!
