  1. Twin Tone, Cool Looks

    Posted by Seba Pezzani on 3rd Nov 2015

    I recently put my hands on a pretty rare Twin Tone model, with a sunburst and a Bigsby vibrato. What a treat! I have always been looking for the perfect, impossible blend between a Telecaster and a Les Paul. Impossible, as I said. This Twin Tone of mine does not make it possible but it gets as close to perfection as it can. Smooth neck, very well built and finished instrument, with a marvellous sunburst finish. What about those two pickups? Well, the bridge one is a real blend of a Les Paul bridge humbucker and the classic Tele sound: clean, crunchy and piercing. But what really does the trick is the neck humbucker, which almost totally overcomes all challenges. I kid you not: this guitar knocked me down and it is worth five times as much its interesting price. The killer looks lured me into buying it but it truely sounds amazing. And it makes me look supercool on the stage too. Not a bad bonus...

  2. A true favorite guitar!

    I got this one almöst a year ago and today I cannot imagine being without it. It's beautiful to play on and beautiful to look at. Very easy played and really good for slide with heavy strongs.
    Great prizing for ab outstanding guitar!

  3. airline twin tone

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Oct 2015

    Because I work at a fine arts storage facility I do believe the guitar could have been packed better for transit. But thats just me. Never the less this came in tip top shape and the money paid is nothing compared to the quality sounds that you get. Light weight and exactly what I expected and more. This guitars tenacious! The tones were exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a lot Eastwood!!!

  5. Made the cut

    Posted by Cameron on 1st Oct 2015

    My relationship with this guitar started off as complicated. I build guitars as a hobby - but in a agreement with my wife I have a 4 guitar stand rule. 4 stands = 4 guitars - no more, as a result I end up selling more than a few.

    When I discovered Eastwood / Airline I immediately fell in love with the concept. To say they are simply beautiful reproductions is a huge understatement, I really admire the business model, the insight, the reintroduction of important guitars to a new generation.

    My first Airline was a Bighorn - I loved the beauty and faithfulness of the design but had a hard time with some of the mechanics. While I loved the dynamic range of the Argyle pickups I struggled with my perception of inconsistent tuning.

    Eastwood is an unusual guitar company in they are extremely customer responsive. I asked if it would be possible for a switch to the Twin Tone and they agreed to the switch, no questions asked.

    As with any guitar out of the box, a set-up is probably a good idea. However, I procrastinated and while at first had a tough time with the action , I just kept playing it . The more I played it the more I began to understand it. As it is it plays as a beautiful blues guitar, great for bending down pull offs.

    The Twin Tone has many attributes. It is faithful to the Supro design and really looks spectacular. It it probably the most comfortable guitar I’ve ever picked up. It nestles into your body like a comfy old sweater. The hot rail humbuckers are thirsty. Tons of tone and features a crispy to warm tonal range.

    My inclination initially was that it would be hard for this guitar to make the four stand rule. The more I play it, the more likely I’ll be looking at it for years to come.

  6. Twin terror!

    Posted by Mark Evers on 1st Oct 2015

    I gave the Twintone 5 stars for several reasons. Bang for buck. Under $500, and has replaced my need for a really expensive Les Paul. I love the playability. I did have to have it set up out of box (raise action for slide playing), but that goes for every new guitar I've ever bought. Love the dual hot rail pickups. Lots of bite on the bridge, and great deep tone on the neck pickup. Of course it looks awesome, but all of here know that its all about playability, tone, and dependability. I'm thrilled with mine and will play it on up-coming summer tour.
