Airline 59 2P with Easdtwood Guitar

Grade: Near Mint

 

Something you’d see in a Montgomery Ward catalogue in the ‘50s and ‘60s, the original Res-O-Glas model was the weapon of choice for many blues players of the time, including JB Hutto to whom this model is often attributed. Since then, musicians such as Jack White, PJ Harvey, Calexico and more have discovered the charms and unique character of these original Airlines.


Updated for the modern working musician, this machine introduces all the right touches in all the right places. In this modern improvement upon our roots, the fragile Res-O-Glas body of the sixties model is upgraded to a tone-chambered mahogany to offer lasting quality while maintaining it’s famous resonant tones. You want iconic Valco style in a stage and studio-ready guitar? Look no further.

  • New
    Brand new, shipped from manufacturer directly to us. Please note: Each new guitar we receive is removed from the original packaging, photographed for our website, and then hung on the wall in our store. New guitars will include the original packaging, case candy, and any accessories included by the manufacturer.

    B-stock
    Technically new, because we get these items directly from the manufacturer, but with some sort of minor defect (a single scratch, dent, etc) that occurred during production. Usually B-stock items function perfectly, but have a cosmetic flaws that prevent the manufacturer from selling them to us as “new.”

    Mint
    Pre-owned, but in museum-grade condition. Literally not a single scratch on it. The only thing that separates “mint” from “new” is the fact that at some point a customer bought it and took it home. Even if the customer bought it and stuck it in a closet without ever taking it out of the case, it’s still technically MINT, not new.

    Near Mint
    Only the smallest amount of wear. Maybe a tiny, barely noticeable “hairline” scratch on the back, or tarnish on the hardware.

    Excellent
    The most common condition grade in our shop. Used gently, very minor wear from normal use. A couple small scratches or dings, but fairly new-looking overall.

    Very Good
    A few more dings or scratches than a guitar in “excellent,” condition, but still very clean.

    Good
    A fair amount of dings, scrapes, scratches, and wear. Gig-played, toured with, well-used, almost beat up.

    Fair
    Really beat up. Big scratches, big dings, gashes in the finish all the way down to the wood, missing non-essential parts, etc.

    Poor
    Unplayable, in need of restoration, or to be sold as spare parts.
