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.

OK, tried em out last night. The pickups are not especially "hot", but they sound great. Different somehow too. Lots of tonal possibilities with this guitar. I especially like the middle position with neck PU set dark and bridge PU bright. This guitar can sound woody and jazzy, bright and twangy, or really gritty and grindy. I am really happy Mike, thanks again.

This guitar arrived today, that was incredibly fast! Thank you!
The level of quality is very very nice, with a good neck and fingerboard, nice fret job, fret ends all well finished, binding looks great, nice glossy topcoat.
I have not given it a proper tryout plugged-in yet. I'll have to see if I can bond with those funky pickups... but I figured that going in...
Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for such unbelievably fast shipping, and wanted to emphasize, this guitar is gorgeous!
