*Sorry,we're currently out of stock of the Airline 59 3P Ripley! You can still pre-order one here, and we'll ship a brand new one as soon as it's ready. Current ETA is April 2019*
A little while back I got together with Ripley Johnson from http://www.woodenshjips.com/ who has been using our '59 3P for many years. The question came up, how can we make it even better? Here is what Ripley had to say:
"The '59 Airline is the most versatile guitar that I've ever owned. We can take it to another level and blow everyone away with the addition of a built-in preamp boost. I would love to really push my amps with the simple flick of a switch - to get some really rich, burning tones. And it would be perfect for leads. I can't really imagine it getting any better than that!"
Well, here it is folks, The '59 3P "Ripley" Custom featuring our proprietary Transwarp Drive™ installed inside the chambered body and activated with a small toggle switch below the bridge, in front of the Master Volume for easy access. Check out the video demo!
