Taking cues from the National Newport guitar of the '60s, the Airline Map DLX Electric guitar features a tone-chambered mahogany body - for stability and resonance, as well as two Alnico Hot-10 Humbuckers and a Bigsby tremolo Roller Bridge for a guitar that simply exudes mojo. Don't believe us? Just ask The Cure, The Black Keys, or The White Stripes - they can all vouch for this tone machine.
The Airline Map is our tribute to the ever-stylish National Newport -- or Map Guitar -- from the 1960s. Icons of the studio and stage have recognized the draw of the vintage National guitars’ Valco designs, from The Cure’s Robert Smith to The Black Keys’ Dan Aurbach.
Our Map is crafted from tone-chambered mahogany rather than the original Res-O-Glas bodies of the mid-century, which adds stability while still focusing on the model’s famous resonant tone. Factor in the two Alnico Hot-10 humbuckers, and you’ve got a modern tone monster with familiar controls and all of the mojo of a vintage National.
