  1. Airline Map DLX Sky Blue Limited Edition

    Posted by Rob Redfern on 2nd Nov 2015

    This guitar is incredible. I own a vintage Les Paul and Strat, and this instrument is as good as either of them! The build quality is flawless. The person/ people who put this guitar together are craftsmen second to none. The attention to detail is total. Anyone who has reservations about a Korean built guitar should think again. These guys are grade A guitar smiths.

    The guitar looks absolutely stunning. The neck is sleek fast and perfectly finished. Better than my vintage Strat!! The sound is unique Ballsy resonant bass notes and rich bright top end. Using an overdive sound makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
    Thank you Eastwood

    Beautiful to look at plays like a dream! The pick ups work really well with effects and the tone is awesome!
    Great for all kinds of music
    Thanks Eastwood for making such great instruments.
    I also have a folksier that is just as great

  3. Seafoam Lovliness

    Posted by Ally Lee on 1st Oct 2015

    I've owned this guitar from new for a couple of years now ...
    Great build quality and looks (I get a lot if people asking about it ..)
    Really comfortable to play,great neck (it's quite big which suits my large hands)
    I've put a couple of Mojo goldfoil/filtertrons in mine to give it a more twangsome tone BUT the stock pickups sounded ok ....
    Would love to have the matching Baritone ....One day - one day .
    Highly recommended if you're looking for something a little different

  4. And then the Lord smiled, ON THE MAP GUITAR!

    Posted by The Adam on 1st Oct 2015

    I got this guitar in a trade and was really worried that the humbuckers would be dark and midrangey but to my surprise they were not! They have a lot of brightness to them! and the bridge pick up has that nice vintage twang! like on The Beatles song "Day Tripper"
    This thing is eye candy and sounds great to boot! It can cover a multitude of styles: Rock, Country, Jazz, Metal, Surf, ANYTHING! You should stop reading this review and just buy the guitar!

  5. Airline Map is an awesome Guitar

    Posted by Gregg B on 1st Oct 2015

    Being a lefty I have always found it difficult to find guitars to add to my growing collection. Having spotted the green Airline Map online one day, I new that I needed this guitar to add to my collection. The retro-surf- look to it alone screams this is a cool guitar. I went on to the co. website and ordered the guitar and cool harshell case and received it within a week. Well I am pleased to say the guitar plays as well as it looks. My band plays punk, country, hard rock, rockabilliy and this thing handles them all with ease. My band mates always mention the versatility of the sounds and even though I bring gretsches and les pauls to the gigs as well its the Airline that people always want to talk about. The neck is fast and comfortable and the Bigsby is an added bonus. Its a lot fo guitar for $950

  6. Living with the MAP

    Posted by Brad on 19th Nov 2014

    I've had my white MAP DLX for almost a year now - and it's a good time to review. I've put it through its paces, played big gigs and little gigs, recorded a bit, rattled some windows - this thing can easily handle most anything you could throw at it. Smooth as butter on a hot biscuit. Holds tune really nicely, even with the Bigsby. Only issue I've had is a little loose input jack, but that's an easy adjustment.

    I bought it B-stock, from the web, sight unseen, and honestly can't tell where the heck this thing had a flaw. Set up was really good right out of the box (although, always a good idea to get any guitar set up to your own playing preference/style). Super impressed with Eastwood's overall service.

    After playing it for close to a year, I still feel as good about this guitar as I did when I first got it.
