Eastwood Guitars introduces the new Airline Bighorn Guitar
Second in a series of new Airline models slated for 2011 is the Airline Bighorn. This new model draws inspiration from the original Montgomery Wards student guitars of the 1960’s, but is delivered in the form of a professional grade modern instrument.
At first glance it appears to be a short scale guitar, however it is a full Fender scale length of 25 ½”. The stripped down Bighorn features the popular Airline Argyle Diamond pickups, 3-way switching, dual volume / tone controls and a fixed adjustable bridge. Its simple design has a solid basswood body and a maple bolt-on neck with the raised metal Airline logo on the headstock. It is available in Green, Red and Sunburst. Deluxe AIRLINE hardshell cases are also available.
"The original 1960’s Airline Bighorn has been an indie band favorite for many years," said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "but they are becoming very hard to find. That is when we like to step in and offer an alternative to the original that plays and sounds better, at an affordable price. At a street price of only $399, we’ve more that hit the mark with the Bighorn."
