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. Department store mail-order catalogues were a major player in the mass distribution of lower-cost instruments, and that’s how most of these instruments found their homes.

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