Story

The Airline RS-II is a tribute to the Roy Smeck model of the late 50’s. The unique semi-hollow design without F-Holes combine with the VALCO Argyle single coil pickups to produce a unique tone reminiscent from many early electric guitars from the 50’s and 60’s. Despite its semi-hollow design, the RS-II is capable of producing clean or distorted tones with minimal feedback.

Over a decade ago, the Airline RS-II was a regular production model under the Eastwood umbrella. It went out of production sometime in the early 2010s, but since then we've had countless requests for it to come back.


We figured we'd bring it back in style, offering it in both Natural and Redburst finishes. Not only that, but we're also offering a three pickup version
 in Tobacco Burst and Metallic Black!

    • I was the #12 in the deposit line and I'm really excited to support this reissue. 3 years ago for Christmas I had my fathers original 1961 Roy Smeck Stratotone that was purchased from Montgomery Ward reconditioned to a gig playing ability. We are going to be anxious to receive your version for comparison and hopefully have 2 beautiful instruments with a great story to tell. After we get this I will send the pics of both instruments for fun

      Thanks for supporting the RS II! We'd love to see that side-by-side shot once you get the guitar!
