Eastwood Guitars consider the Airline Espanada to be the big brother of their successful Airline Tuxedo guitar. It is meant to be a versatile guitar that can let you play Jazz, Blues and Rockabilly with ease. It is also relatively affordable compared to vintage Harmony H63 guitars that are now valued at $3000 to $5000!

The body features a maple top while the back and sides are made from mahogany. Its full hollow body comes in a slightly rounder jazz box shape, with a thickness that is slightly thinner than conventional full hollow body guitars.

It has a set maple neck that is topped by a rosewood fretboard. The nut width is measured at 1 11/16" while the scale length is at 25 1/2".

The guitar features two custom hi-output P-90 pickups, designed for producing versatile tones - from mellow cleans to blues and rock. These pickups are controlled by a 3 way switch and tone control is provided by independent volume and tone cupcake knobs.

Eastwood Guitars made sure that quality components are put in, namely TonePros Tune-O-Matic bridge, trapeze tail and Grover style tuners. Finally, its retro vibe is rounded off by the vintage Airline “Coat of Arms” logoed pickguard and the thick white binding on the body, neck and the headstock.

Mike Robinson, Eastwood Guitars President, “I’ve loved the Espanada since I was a kid, and after the overwhelming success of the Airline Tuxedo, we knew it was time to bring the Airline Espanada to market."

The Airline Espanada is now available and priced at $999. It comes with a deluxe Hardshell Case and is also available in a left-handed model. For more information and complete specification, you can head over to Eastwood Guitars.
