Below: A mint early 1960’s Airline with original case. It is owned by a friend of mine that brought it over last week to tease me! Fortunately he agreed to let me share some pictures with you.

Interesting because it as an indiviual slider volume for each pickup, so you can dial in an unlimited variety of tones. An early 1960’s Vivona which was made by EKO, and a wee Hi-Tone. It is from Italy, and looks, feels, smells, just like the JG Italians. Below: On the left is a RARE Wandre Doris from the mid 1960’s. Next is a nice ’67 Fender Jaguar and the ’67 Domino Spartan, costing about 7000% less. ) Though nothing really beats the mojo of owning a true, vintage instrument, at least Eastwood have, over the past decade, done a great job at bringing back some of those gems, as mentioned before.
Lastly, an EKO Florentine Bass with it’s partner 6-string.
