Eastwood Airline Bobkat
Eastwood Guitars brings back another classic design with the Airline Bobkat, based on the '60s era Harmony Bobkat.
The Airline Bobkat is designed for serious students of the instrument who are looking for something that looks unique.
Due to its cool looks and sounds, the Bobkat design was also branded by Supro, Kay, Airline and other guitar manufacturers. Harmony's 1960 catalog described the original Bobkat as “Modern design and electronics for speed and response, to give you what you want for today's music and playing style!”.
According to Eastwood Guitars, the description from the '60s era catalog is still applicable with the new Airline Bobkat model, and they maybe right because until now, the Airline Bobkat shape does still look futuristic. Here is the rest of the press release:
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.
Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, commented: “The Bobkat is just way too much fun to play, the single coil and the feel of this guitar are just so bang on 60’s, you’ll think it’s vintage.”
The new Eastwood Airline Bobkat model is now available and is currently retailing for $379. For more information, you can head over to visit Eastwood Guitars.
