Eastwood Guitars bring back another classic with the new Airline '59 Newport guitar, based on vintage '50s era National Newport Val-Pro 88.

This retro looking guitar is brought to life with modern tonal flexibility, courtesy of the two mini-humbuckers and a piezo bridge pickup.

The new Airline ’59 Newport starts off with a lightweight tone chambered mahogany body that follows the Airline series' distinct shape. It is available in two finishes - Seafoam Green and Black.

The guitar's bound maple neck is bolt into the body for convenient maintenance and adjustments. The Rosewood fingerboard features zero fret and vintage style National inlaid fret markers. The scale length of the guitar is 24 3/4", and has a nut width of 1 11/16".

Giving the guitar a wide variety of tones are two NY Mini Humbuckers and a Piezo bridge pickup. The mini humbuckers cover everything from surf to rock, while the piezo will give you the ability to conjure acoustic-like clean tones.

Part of the guitar's distinct look is the line of knobs just below the pickguard. The six smaller knobs let you control the volume and tone of the three pickups independently, while the bigger knob controls the master volume. The pickups are wired to a 5-way pickup selector switch, which completes the tone shaping facilities of the instrument.

Other features include a tun-o-matic bridge, chrome trapeze tail, Grover style tuners and it ships with a DLX Airline hardshell case.

Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars said, "The National Newport Val-Pro 88 was such a fabulous guitar and hard to find, that it was a must add to the Airline ’59 family and the response to this new model is amazing".
