    Calculating time remaining


    Vintage guitar collectors will surely be familiar with Kay's line of student guitars from the 1960s. For some of you, the Vanguard may have even been your first guitar!

    We've always loved the look of the Vanguard, and frankly, we're not sure why it's taken so long for us to give it the old Eastwood treatment. So without further adieu... here it is!

    The Airline Vanguard will pay tribute to the original in many ways, except that this will be far from a student-level instrument. For today's guitarist, we plan to recreate this iconic vintage model with modern and quality components, providing all of the 60’s vibe, but with none of the sacrifices that can often come with using these student model beauties on the stage or in the studio.
