1965 Airline Professional Model No Longer Available

1965 Airline Professional Model No Longer Available

This is 1965 Airline Professional Model, 3-pickup electric with stock Bigsby tailpiece.

Airlines were found mostly in Montgomery-Ward catalogues in the 1960’s. While it now seems odd that electric guitars could be harder to come by, this was the case during the early 1960’s.

Airlines were made by Valco, who also produced National and Supro instruments.

Introduced in 1960, Leo Fender’s Jazz Bass tends to have a tighter, more focused tone that doesn’t emphasize the fundamental frequencies as much as the Precision bass does. This helps it to move ‘forward’ in an audio mix, making it more popular in emerging musical styles where there was more emphasis on the bass – for example, rock power trios and funk.
