Eastwood Guitars Announce Airline Jupiter PRO Upgraded Models -
Eastwood Guitars have announced two new upgraded versions of the Airline Jupiter.
Eastwood Guitars introduces two new upgraded versions of the popular Airline Jupiter: the Airline Jupiter PRO and the Jupiter PRO Dallas Green Signature. Since the highly successful introduction of this model in 2012, there has been an outcry for a modernized version of this hollow-body tribute to the famous 1950's Silvertone Jupiter model.
Last year Eastwood teamed up with singer/songwriter and vintage
guitar enthusiast Dallas Green from City and Colour to fine-tune
the Jupiter for modern playability. The main structural changes
included replacing the wooden bridge with a modern tun-o-matic
bridge and upgrading the bolt-on neck to a set neck. The new
Airline Jupiter PRO is a hollow-body guitar with mahogany top, back
and sides with a one-piece maple set-neck. It features two Airline
Argyle Pickups, a 3-way vintage flipper switch and 5 controls
mounted on a flowing pickguard. The controls are dual tone and
volume plus a unique Blender control to pan between the pickups for
a wider tonal palette.
The Dallas Green Signature model comes in a beautiful honeyburst finish, tortoiseshell pickguard, upgraded trapeze tail and is embellished with body, neck and headstock binding. The guitar is topped off with his logo signature on the headstock.
"I'm pretty excited to have my own signature Airline Jupiter Pro," says Dallas Green. "Being part of the creative process in building it was a whole new experience. Can't wait for people to play them!"
"We've always loved the look of the Jupiter" said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "and working with Dallas to develop this PRO Series has been great. Our fans will truly enjoy this new model for its great looks, tone and playability."
