Below is a posting about an Airline guitar for sale on the Web. It gives a great desciption of what I have.
Check it out..I bought this Airline Grand Concert Guitar for parts..and again, I just couldn't bring myself to let this one go..LOL...I cleaned it up and revealed the awesome original finish on this guitar and just had to get it put back together.. Jeff the Tech did a great job with the setup..It plays now with awesome easy playing action . The original bridge was almost off. We reset and reglued it properly. The original nut was missing so I had Jeff make a new bone nut for it...
Its a Grand Concert Guitar from the 1960's Montgomery Wards Catalogs...The lower bout measures 15 inches...This model with the Airline Stencilled Headstock was made from 1963 to 1964. Airlines best Flat top acoustic guitar sold in that time. This one I am calling a 1963 but it could very well be a 1964. Only one of two years for this one.
This is how a much loved guitar looks after a lifetime of play...You won't look like a Rookie with this one....We sanded the bridge down to help the action. It will keep this guitar playing great for many years... We added a new bone nut as the original was missing...Complete with Original Kluson Double Line Deluxe Tuners that work great.
This guitar looks great but its not perfect as you can see....superficial dings and scratches as you can see in the pics.. ......the original frets are nice and bright..not a lot of wear on them...see pics...I left the cool Music store sticker on it as found. I thought it added to the cool look. see pics!
This guitar is a blast to play ...What a looker!! .....it sounds great and its all original..... You don't see these Airline Grand Concert Guitars everyday and they aren't making any more...My tech has become an expert fixing and setting these old timers up ..The bolt on neck makes these easy to set up and adjust as time goes on.....
I ship World wide...so.........
Hit that BIN!!
It looks good, sounds good, and plays great .....It is a used guitar so it has scrapes and bruises ......Nothing that detracts from its terrific looks...see pics...it will all be pro-packed by yours truly...I do this alot and have not had one complaint.... It has very few nicks and scratches as seen in the pics but it is a solid 8.5 out of 10 Guitar..
.....Now this guitar is beautiful but used and old so it will be sold as-is no returns... but it will not disappoint the new owner..check my feedbacks ...This one will be no exception... it will be pro-packed by yours truly...I do this alot.....The lucky bid winner pays $38.00 Shipping for the lower 48...all others please ask first...
