Eastwood introduces the new Airline Jupiter PRO
June 17, 2013
|Eastwood Guitars introduces two new upgraded versions of the popular Airline Jupiter: the Airline Jupiter PRO and the Jupiter PRO Dallas Green Signature. Since the highly successful introduction of this model in 2012, there has been an outcry for a modernized version of this hollow-body tribute to the famous 1950’s Silvertone Jupiter model.
Last year Eastwood teamed up with signer/songwriter and vintage guitar enthusiast Dallas Green from City and Colour to fine-tune the Jupiter for modern playability. The main structural changes included replacing the wooden bridge with a modern tun-o-matic bridge and upgrading the bolt-on neck to a set neck. The new Airline Jupiter PRO is a hollow-body guitar with mahogany top, back and sides with a one-piece maple set-neck. It features two Airline Argyle Pickups, a 3-way vintage flipper switch and 5 controls mounted on a flowing pickguard. The controls are dual tone and volume plus a unique Blender control to pan between the pickups for a wider tonal palette. The Dallas Green Signature model comes in a beautiful honeyburst finish, tortoiseshell pickguard, upgraded trapeze tail and is embellished with body, neck and headstock binding.
The guitar is topped off with his logo signature on the headstock.
“I’m pretty excited to have my own signature Airline Jupiter Pro,” says Dallas Green. “Being part of the creative process in building it was a whole new experience. Can’t wait for people to play them!”
“We’ve always loved the look of the Jupiter" said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "and working with Dallas to develop this PRO Series has been great. Our fans will truly enjoy this new model for its great looks, tone and playability.”
