Eastwood''s latest Airline Series additions feature new rubber binding.

Toronto, ON (January 27, 2009) -- Eastwood Guitars debuted their new Airline ’59 Custom Series guitars to rave reviews at NAMM 2009 earlier this month. The Airline ’59 Custom 2P and 3P are the first guitars in the new Airline Custom Series and have elevated the quality reputation of Eastwood Guitars to a whole new level.

The ’59 Custom guitars deliver many new features to the Airline brand. These guitars feature a unique rubber binding which surrounds the entire body, and replicates the aesthetics of the original Airline Res-O-Glas guitars. Additional cosmetic details include a striped pickguard, aluminum tone switch plate and available NOS Valco knobs. Both the ’59 Custom 2P and the ’59 Custom 3P guitars are fitted with the high output Airline Vintage Voiced Single Coil pickups. These models ship in the new Vintage Style Deluxe form-fit Airline hardshell case with steel plate logo.

“It has been five years since I asked our engineering team for that rubber binding,” stated Mike Robinson, President of Eastwood Guitars, “and I can say it was definitely worth the wait. Over the past six years, our Airline series has built a great reputation for playability and tone, but now we are setting a new standard in guitar aesthetics with the new ’59 Custom Series.”

The Airline ’59 Custom 2P is available in red and the Airline ’59 Custom 3P comes equipped with a Bigsby tremolo and is available in black or seafoam green. Both new models are in stock now and are shipping worldwide.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
