Airline Folkstar Electric Resophonic Guitar by Eastwood, Red

Airline Folkstar Electric Resophonic Guitar by Eastwood, Red

The Airline Folkstar, improved and re-issued by the Eastwood guitar company, brings back the 1950s Valco Folkstar resophonic aesthetic, but with a pair of pickups and a reasonable price.  Airline guitars were built by Valco, one of the largest instrument manufacturers in the world, from 1958 to 1868 when the company folded. The original Airline Folkstar used Valco’s Res-O-Glas body construction – fiberglass resin on wood – with a single resonator cone. It was entirely acoustic, and never had pickups

Sold! Fender Champ Lap Steel Desert Sand, 1962

Sold!  Fender Champ Lap Steel Desert Sand, 1962

Built from late 1954 until 1980, the Fender Champ Lap Steel was a popular budget instrument and often sold as a set with the 5-watt Champ tube amplifier. The Champ Lap Steel replaced the Fender Champion steel, with the major differences being the ‘Desert Sand’ or tan finish on the Champ instead of the Pearloid (also known as Mother of Toilet Seat) cover on the Champion, and the simpler shape of the Champ.
