NATIONAL MAP Guitars were made in the USA from 1958-64 by VALCO and sold through Montgomery Ward. This AIRLINE® MAP is a tribute to the NATIONAL Newport Guitar from 1962. Today they are played by people like David Bowie, The Cure, Calexico and White Stripes. Original MAP Res-O-Glas models now sell for $3,000-$5,000.

Just rec'd the above guitar as a suprise gift from my wife. WOW...what a great guitar. I have been playing for 50 years professionaly and have many guitars of all makes and price points and I rank this guitar up there with the best of them. Great feel, great looks,
fantastic tones, and very comfortable. Any venue of music fits this guitar. I am currently looking into another model to add to my collection. If your looking for quality craftsmanship, great tones, feel, and looks, then look into Eastwood Airline guitars.
