Airline 3P DLX - Prototype (China)


A few years back, this prototype of the Airline 59 3P DLX was done up in China, in an effort to offer a budget-friendly version of the model. The idea was eventually scrapped, but we've been hanging onto this prototype since then.

There are a few cosmetic differences when compared to the production model made in Korea, such as the black pickup surrounds, plastic toggle switch plate, and slightly different silhouette. The neck is a little more chunky, and fit/finish is not as high-class as on the premium builds. 

Overall though, this is a solid Airline 3P at a fraction of the price of its Korean-made counterpart!
