  1. Elegant Axe

    Posted by Steve on 1st Oct 2015

    Fretboard feels wonderful. The pickups sound silky, quiet. I expected more noise from P90's. Finish is impeccable, a really beautiful guitar.
    I gave it four stars because palm mutes are something you have to get used to because the trapeze tail is so close to the tune-o-matic.
    This comes with 10's and they suit the guitar, intonation is good. I enjoy perfect intonation. I'll be putting on an Earvana nut. I like 11's with a wrapped third.

  2. Great, versatile sound

    Posted by AaronL on 1st Oct 2015

    This guitar has a classic p-90 sound that is further accentuated by it's beautiful hollow-body tone -it just sounds amazing without any amplification. The PUPs are pretty hot and have an awesome bright bark that I love. I felt like I became a better guitar player just picking this up because everything just sounds better. I use this with a Peavey Classic 30 and there are so many different tones -all the way from acoustic to classic rock and blues -very vintage and very responsive to pick attack. Great thing about this guitar is that it's light and well balanced and so easy to play -I really love the neck.

    One thing that surprised me is how quiet the guitar is -I expected a lot more noise from single coils, especially since these are not reverse wound.

    Build on this is phenomenal -super solid and professional -only part that seems to be potentially problematic is the pick guard, which is just held on by two screws, but no problems yet. The look of the guitar in person is even nicer than the pictures -the binding is so well done and everyone who has seen this have complimented the aesthetics of the guitar.

    If you like P90s and hollow body sound don't hesitate on this one, there's very little it can't do well and the quality is what you would expect from something four times this price.

  3. Diggin it.

    Posted by Brecken Jones on 1st Oct 2015

    Right as I opened the case and saw that shimmering black with the Bigsby I knew this was a great purchase. Took her out of the case, plugged her in and fell in love.

    Great tonal range and a beautiful look/feel. Stock right out of the box I give it a 5.

    Totally worth your money.

  4. My New Favorite Electric

    Posted by JMAC on 1st Oct 2015

    This was my first Eastwood Airline guitar and I really enjoy it. The look is good and fit and finish just right everywhere. The sound, played acoustic, is good and that's always a great sign on an electric guitar. It's a bit deeper than an LP but lighter because it's hollow. The single coil pickups sound great and the guitar plays like buttah. Other than some setup tweaks the only change I made was a bone nut (personal preference). If you want something different this is a great guitar and the price is right.

  5. Favorite Guitar

    Posted by Scott L. on 1st Oct 2015

    Like a combination of a Strat and Les Paul with freaking P-90s. Light weight and beautiful. Really nice neck, wide and flat enough to be comfortable. The copper is my favorite color now and the white headstock is insanely cool. The tone/s, volume and sustain are wonderful. The perfect electric for me. If I could get the mother of pearl/abalone finish someday I would be happy to own a second one.

  6. Perfect!

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Oct 2015

    Right out of the box it was ready to play set up nice and low for fast action and it's a beauty to look at too! Thanks to Peter for accommodating me with the exchange I LOVE IT!
