Used Airline Bobkat w/Bag Black/Gold
These retro guitars sure are fun to play! Although not a short-scale, the elongated body does give it a smaller appearance. This one got traded-in to our shop with very little wear on it. The frets have plenty of life and their some fine finish scratches in the black paint that are impossible to photo. Comes in with a nice gigbag. Weighs in at 7.2 lbs.
Based on the Harmony Bobkat model, which was produced from 1963 to 1966, and was also branded by Airline, Supro, Kay and many others, the Bobkat is fun playing guitar that in its day was the go to model for students and pros. The single coil and the feel of this guitar are just so bang-on 60s, youll think its vintage.
The Airline Bobkat is a 25 1/2-inch scale solid basswood guitar with a bolt-on bound maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, dot markers and a 1 5/8-inch width at the nut. This retro-style guitar is true to the 60s vibe with a fixed adjustable wooden bridge and features the Airline Single-Coil Vintage Argyle Pickup with a solo/rhythm switch and a volume and tone control. Fans of the original model will be glad to hear that Eastwood has also added an adjustable truss rod to make this a truly playable guitar. The Airline Bobkat comes in a bright candy apple red and features a raised white Airline logo on the matching red headstock.
