The Airline Jupiter is reminiscent of the late 1950's Silvertone Jupiter model. The unique hollow-body design without F-Holes combine with the Airline ARGYLE Single coil pickups to produce a unique tone reminiscent from many early electric guitars from the 50's and 60's. The Jupiter is capable of producing clean or distorted tones without feedback.

The Jupiter is a fun-to-play, good-looking guitar -- and as a lefty -- I appreciate all the Eastwood and Airline instruments that are available to us southpaws from their unique inventory. I like the Argyle pickups a lot. They add a great retro-feel to this guitar. I changed around some of the parts on the guitar (mostly because I had them on hand...), and turned this fun guitar into one that's on par with all my other gig-worthy instruments. I changed the wood bridge to a Gibson ABR-1-type bridge giving it a bit more tone; I changed the tuners to some Grovers, and most importantly, I changed the tailpiece to a shorter trapeze tailpiece. This final modification made instrument less stiff and easier to play. The Jupiter is cool the way comes from the factory, but for me, I believe these modifications turned a fun guitar into a great guitar!
