Airline '59 Town & Country DLX
Canadian guitar manufacturer in Korea, a replica Airline Town and Country, a rarity makes the united states in 1952. Shrinking normal, but it is smaller than a stratovolcano or gibson .Three microphones, originally humbuckers but I installed by the manufacturer of microphones airline reissues, who quipaient "real" and who are single coil, unlike what might suggest their appearance, but net s in one way a little spciale. There is a volume and tone for each pickup spar and a master's degree and a good old slecteur three positions (no intermediary position, so).
The Airline era are "Resoglass" wholesale fiberglass. The reissues are wooden, with spcificit: the body is semi-hollow for more sustain and the sound characteristic. No complaints about the violin is impeccable, which is surprising for a guitar of this price Corenne (roughly 900 euros, with the change of microphones). Very nice finish, nothing wrong. Bigsby Vibrato well made, but not original (the Chinese version, what). Otherwise, no beauty is stopped asking me questions about this guitar during concerts, it really intriguing.

USE

The handle is impeccable, not a "motorway" he keeps all the same this small ct "vintage", but everything is hyper-playable and comfortable. Ergonomics is perfect, it is taken in hand without problem. The "but": the volume buttons and tone, placs above the strings, may interfere with, it takes a bit of practice to avoid hitting play. the mcaniques are replicas of mcaniques era of so unreliable (Solicitating at keeping accuracy, if not, the rest is ok), notice I did not still brings a luthier to have an opinion about it. Oh yes, you have already changed the strings on a Bigsby? That is, euuuuuh ... boring.

SONORITS

THE big advantage of this guitar. A truly original sound, rac and versatile. His brilliant and sharp clear, but especially ... especially ... when you go up the gain ... it becomes very very naughty! Really versatile in distortion, aggressive and rock'n'roll, a real pleasure. If you like the White Stripes ... An endless sustain. And above all, even in an amp simulator (ToneLab), she keeps this side "vintage" and wild. Dfinitivement a guitar for rock, garage and indie-rock, with the addition of a look fabulous ... Very good guitar for blues, too. She really has a particular sound, which is similar to any guitar "known", although the rank more readily in the fender gibson in ... Very large original sound and really try typ absolutely before purchase (at the risk of hurting customers in the shop ...).

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for six months, six months bohneur yet ... A beautiful guitar, original, and ultimately little chre given the Gnrale quality. Really, the choice for a more standard and fifties vintage look for the handling, forcment not obvious (that is, as they say, a guitar that "deserves"). Congratulations Mike Robinson Eastwood for this nice guitar.

bbac's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Beauty and the Beast"

Airline '59 Town & Country DLX
Same as below, but with an important correction: it is not three micro Alnico Hot-10 Humbuckers (type Airline 3P) but 2 AIRLINE Vintage Voiced Single Coil and 1 Alnico Hot-10 (type Airline '59). and .. this is more like it ... but it's not the same price!

(To recognize the '59 type has a black border on the edge of the body, the "classic" version 3P none)

Color: Vintage Cream

Switch: 3 positions

Controls: 3 Volume, 3 Tone, 1 Master Volume
Bridge: 5 positions
Adjustable easel, BIGSBY Licensed Tremolo
Hardware: Vintage Kluson Style Nickel / Chrome

UTILIZATION

comfortable and fast neck (close enough for my small hands)
light
access to acute rather easy.

adjustments are positioned a little oddly ... but forgive him quickly.

big sound immediately

SOUNDS

I wanted a sound with grain ... I found
I use a Marshall JCM900 / it rocks.

mics of the '59 T & C makes the difference compared to a 3P DLX I've tamed in the past.

OVERALL OPINION

2 years of trouble-free after 4 years of good and loyal service Airline 3P DLX one I blow the set aside.

+ the sound is very typical
the - settings that are not necessarily well placed but it is a little better than the 3P dlx ... you have to get used to but it's still attached.

the price seems correct with respect to the finish and the sound quality of the beast.
I did and do this choice with his eyes closed ...

Airline '59 Town & Country DLX
No information on the country of manufacture (even on the manufacturer site).


Model AIRLINE ® Town & Country DLX
Vintage Cream, Redburst
Body: Mahogany with resonance chamber
Neck: Maple bolt
Rosewood, block-level benchmarks
Scale: 25 1/2 "(648mm)
Nut width: 1 11/16 "
Pickups: 3 Alnico Hot-10 humbucker
Switch: 3 positions
Controls: 3 Volume, 3 Tone, 1 Master Volume
Bridge: 5-way Adjustable Roller Bridge, BIGSBY Licensed Tremolo
Hardware: Vintage Kluson Style Nickel / Chrome
Strings: D'Addario # 10

Hollow body, it must be said.

UTILIZATION

The handle is large, it must be used.
It is super light, too see ...
Good access to acute.

on the other hand and this is its biggest flaw, no playing comfort .. I explained there 2 settings microphone, volume and tone, therefore all 6 pots. Manufacturers put them in the most uncomfortable position, above the ropes so. It is suddenly difficult to play, may be why I do not use it as often as she deserves ...
I'll try to cobble something kind of capo plexi, observe the look, not for nothing that Jack White turns the knobs on its Airline '59 1P.

SOUNDS

Agree to anything that is a little dirty I think. I rock, connect a Voxac30 the treat.

OVERALL OPINION

I es for 1 year, I use actually seen little discomfort that causes the knobs settings.

AC of the mouth, being alone on stage with a drummer, it throws.

This is a guitar that I buy without really trying, I love the musicians using: Calexico, White Stripes and even the Black Keys.

Good look comes at a price, and € 1,100 is expensive. I buy a guy who just came to the new offer (1 month) suddenly I paid much less.

I do tip though not too much, you pay the look, the sound is, of course, but for the price I paid more like a brand ...

immediate comfort!

SOUNDS

Three microphones are effective (Three Alnico Hot-10 Humbuckers)
Bluesy, jazzy, rock, anything goes

OVERALL OPINION

That's two I never left! I was looking for something different from Fender and others ... and surprise! Handle a bit larger than a "strat" ​​with a back "SG" and immediate comfort. Bluesy, jazzy, rock, anything goes. Super held the agreement despite the Bigsby which the latter would benefit deco, that its original function was very quickly blocked on the switch or knob. This guitar is light and balanced. Three microphones are effective with volume control / tone independent! For the look, the suit or the "marcel", it goes! Super finish, just a habit, his arm positioner to prevent moving pickups knobs Beware of copies!
