1961 Airline Town and Country 3 Valco Pickups All Original Pro Setup Hard Shell Case
Out of stock
Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting...
A 1961 Airline Town and Country Guitar with the original Hard Shell Case!
This 1961 beauty has hardly been played over the years. Its one of the cleanest Airlines I have ever seen... The Sunburst finish looks like the day it arrived from the Montgomery Ward Catalog order. That’s right. These cool guitars were sold by Montgomery Wards. The guitar still has its original metal National date sticker on the back of the headstock. It identifies it as a 1961. These guitars were only available from 1961 thru 1964 via the Wards Catalog.This is one of the original “House Brand” Guitars.This is a first year offered model. Incredible shape.
Its quite an experience to be the first to open the back of a guitar that hasn't been viewed inside since it was made. I was thrilled to be that person. Check those pics of the interior of this beautiful guitar. Never touched. The screw heads of the back plate were never touched by a screwdriver until it arrived here at Lawman Guitars...Wow..see pics 5 and 6.
This cool Airline Guitar is original from top to bottom. They used very high quality parts back then. It has the original single line Kluson Tuners, Valco made Single coil pickups with individual pole piece adjustments, pickguard, knobs, nut, everything on this pristine guitar is original. Even the Raised Logo is original on this guitar. They are always missing... I had our Tech go over it and set it up like all of them with low playing easy action. It’s a pleasure to play. It has only the tiniest dings showing that keeps us calling it mint, but what a looker.
Lets talk about the three Valco Single Coil Pickups. If you haven't heard these pickups, be prepared to be impressed. Very cool pickups that are in your face. Blues guys love these yet they also respond very well to any pedals you put in front of them. I have had dozens of guitars with these pickups and my customers love them. They sound great! AND...you get three of them with this guitar!
It comes with the shown original Supro Airline Gray and White Hard Shell Case. This is THEE case for these guitars and are impossible to find. The Gold interior is still great, and all the latches, hinges and original handle are still with it. What an awesome case for this incredible guitar!
This guitar is sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used. However, I have been hand picking my customers guitars for over 20 years now and they have all loved the guitars I found for them.. This one will not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
