Airline Guitars, the coolest of the 1960s guitar explosion, have now been rebooted by Eastwood Guitars out of Canada in the form of well-made, gig-reliable, upgraded guitars. Learn more about Airline Guitars at TheLocalPickup.com.

A little while back I got together with Ripley Johnson from  who has been using our ’59 3P for many years. The question came up, how can we make it even better? Here is what Ripley had to say:

“The ’59 Airline is the most versatile guitar that I’ve ever owned. We can take it to another level and blow everyone away with the addition of a built-in preamp boost. I would love to really push my amps with the simple flick of a switch – to get some really rich, burning tones. And it would be perfect for leads. I can’t really imagine it getting any better than that!”

Well, here it is folks, The ’59 3P “Ripley” Custom featuring our proprietary Transwarp Drive™ installed inside the chambered body and activated with a small toggle switch below the bridge, in front of the Master Volume for easy access. Check out the video demo!
