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.

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
