The Airline RS-II is a tribute to the Roy Smeck model of the late 50’s. The unique semi-hollow design without F-Holes combine with the VALCO Argyle single coil pickups to produce a unique tone reminiscent from many early electric guitars from the 50’s and 60’s. Despite its semi-hollow design, the RS-II is capable of producing clean or distorted tones with minimal feedback.
Over a decade ago, the Airline RS-II was a regular production model under the Eastwood umbrella. It went out of production sometime in the early 2010s, but since then we've had countless requests for it to come back.
