News: Eastwood Guitars release the Airline Bobkat

Eastwood Guitars release the Airline Bobkat
 Eastwood Guitars opens up the time machine again and this time brings the famous Airline Bobkat back to life. Based on the Harmony Bobkat model, which was produced from 1963 to 1966, and was also branded by Airline, Supro, Kay and many others, the Bobkat is fun playing guitar that in its day was the “go to” model for students and pros. And the new Airline Bobkat, with a street price of under $400 US is on target to hit that same market.
It is amazing how this description from the 1960’s Harmony catalog is still accurate today for the new Airline Bobkat model, “Modern design and electronics for speed and response, to give you what you want for today's music and playing style!”
The Airline Bobkat is a 25 1/2” scale solid basswood guitar with a bolt-on bound maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, dot markers and a 1 5/8” width at the nut. This retro-style guitar is true to the 60’s vibe with a fixed adjustable wooden bridge and features the Airline Single-Coil Vintage Argyle Pickup with a solo/rhythm switch and a volume and tone control. Fans of the original model will be glad to hear that Eastwood has also added an adjustable truss rod to make this a truly playable guitar. The Airline Bobkat comes in a bright candy apple red and features a raised white Airline logo on the matching red headstock.
“The Bobkat is just way too much fun to play" said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "the single coil and the feel of this guitar are just so bang on 60’s, you’ll think it’s vintage.”
The Airline Bobkat model is available now at Airline Dealers around the world. To find your closest dealer visitwww.eastwoodguitars.com
