Airline Guitars MAP Bass

30 ½” Short Scale Electric Bass Guitar

Based on vintage Valco, National and Airline instruments

Eastwood and Airline guitars are a great value, fun to play and have a cool vibe!

The Airline MAP Bass is a tribute to the vintage National, Valco and Airline instruments of the 1960s. This Airline reissue maintains the cool vibe of the original VALCO design, but addresses issues with playability, reliability and construction that those old guitars and basses were infamous for- All at a price far below the soaring cost of the highly sought after, vintage instruments. Original MAP Res-O-Glas models now sell for $3,000-$5,000. You can own this vintage reissue tribute model for a fraction of that price, and it’s a phenomenal instrument for the money.

The 30.5” scale MAP Bass is well-balanced and fits comfortably against the body while its medium / slim neck fits nicely in the hand. The body is made from Tone Chambered Mahogany and the all wood construction gives a rich, resonant tone vs the rather dead sounding, Reso-glas construction of the originals. Two killer sounding humbucker pickups and a Bigsby tremolo top off the package.
