The new Airline Folkstar Resonator is based off the early 60s model and in true Eastwood fashion it features many upgrades and improvements. This chambered mahogany 24 3/4" scale guitar features a biscuit resonator cone with a Piezo bridge pickup and a NY mini-humbucker neck pickup, which are controlled by a blend potentiometer. This smooth blending feature, combined with the volume and tone controls allows for unlimited sounds, which was unachievable on the non-electrified originals. The eye-catching Airline Folkstar is available in red or black and features the retro rubber body binding just like the Eastwood Airline Custom ’59 series. The bolt-on maple neck with rosewood fingerboard is set up with #12-52 bronze resonator strings, making this a “must have” guitar for both pro-touring and home recording players.
“From its looks to its versatile sounds the new Airline Folkstar has it all,” said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, “We have had great success with our Delta 6 resonator for many years, but the “pros” have been asking for something a little more upscale. We’ve more than exceeded expectations with the Folkstar”.
