Here we have an Airline Folkstar in Red for sale!
This is an older model, built in 2010. It was recently returned after being on loan with one of our artists. It has been kept in fantastic shape, with only a few cosmetic faults to mention:
This guitar will ship with a lightly used hardshell case (Retail $189USD) included.
"The original Folkstar model was released under the Airline and Supro brand names, and the design was a nod to the Valco founders’ past, producing resonator guitars under the moniker of National. Here’s an excerpt from a 1964 catalogue:
“Featuring… Hootenanny’s Newest Star. Now in a modern fiberglass body, Supro offers the famous grandpappy of Hill Country guitar music! The most powerful non-electric guitar of them all! The original self-amplified guitar. A beloved friend of the early folk/country artists.”
Our modernized Folkstar is reproduced with a tone-chambered mahogany body rather than the tone-choking original fiberglass, and a blend knob that allows you to transition between a NY Mini Humbucker in the neck position and a piezo in the bridge. The Folkstar is a sure way to turn heads with a rainbow of unique resonant tones."
