New semi-hollow body models inspired by the Black Key’s Dan Auerbach
Founded in 2001, Eastwood is a Canadian guitar maker that creates reproductions of classic Sixties models like the Airline or the Mosrite.
The H77 and its close relative the H78 were both inspired by the vintage Sixties Harmony H78 the Keys singer/guitarist is often seen playing live. Both models are available with or without a Bigsby.
Closely modeled on Auerbach’s go-to axe, both guitars are outfitted with three Gold Foil Argyle pickups and come equipped with a center block that helps minimize feedback.
Both models ship with a hard case.
This is Eastwood’s official press release:
We are excited to announce the arrival of two new Airline models from Eastwood Guitars. Their new tribute to the 1960′s Harmony H78 – popularized by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys – takes flight this month as the Airline H77 (trapeze tail) and H78 (with Bigsby).
Deluxe archtop hardshell case INCLUDED.
This tribute to the 1960′s Airline H77/78 – which at the time was also available under the brands of Harmony and Silvertone – covers all the best parts of the originals, but kicks it up a notch for 2014. True in almost every detail to the original, upgraded features include the new Gold Foil Argyle pickups, a modern roller bridge for tuning stability, a center block for Bigsby stability and feedback suppression.
Both models are affordably priced with the H77 going for $649 and the H78 retailing for $799.
