Here we have an Airline Folkstar for sale!

This Folkstar was used for one of its demo videos, and has since been hanging about the warehouse as a demo model. Some light play wear may be found.

Otherwise, this one's in excellent shape. It will ship set-up and ready to play!

"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."
