  1. beautifully made

    Posted by Gav on 27th Oct 2015

    Getting back into playing the guitar and wow! what sweet looking set up, so well made and perfect intonation straight out of the box.
    Playing through a hand made princeton, hepas of meaty tones and exactly the P90 tone i was after!
    Well done Eastwood.

  2. 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.

  3. Awesome

    Stunningly beutiful guitar. Great setup right out of the box. Neck feels perfect!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
