Airline Town and Country vintage guitar

This vintage Valco-made Airline Town and Country hardtail guitar from 1961 illustrates quite nicely that not all Airlines had those Res-O-Glas bodies for which they were famous. With the back plate removed, the construction is revealed to be quite crude. Obviously the three pickups (actually single coils in humbucker-sized cases) are front loaded, but note that there's no way of adjusting the height.

  1. Come on now folks, the pickups ARE height adjustable - the two mouter (E string) polepieces raise them up and down in the plastic mounting rings!
