Calculating time remaining

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're taking deposits on a reissue of the two pickup version, but we thought we'd do something fun and offer a 3 pickup version at the same time.

The Airline RS-III is a tribute to the Roy Smeck model of the late 50’s, known as the model 7209. An original three pickup version is extremely hard to find these days, and if you find one, you'll have to be ready to shell out $2,000+ for one!

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-III is capable of producing clean or distorted tones with minimal feedback. Its unique 4-way pickup selector will allow you to enable all pickups, or use your choice of bridge, middle, or neck.

    Add a Question/Comment
    • Where will these be made? Korea like your others?

      In order to keep the final price to $799USD, we're having these made ini China. They will be built at the same factory as our Airline Jupiter model to give you an idea. As always, final inspection and set-ups will be done in Chicago and in Liverpool.

    • Will the metallic black version be a sparkly finish or just plain black?

      It will have a metallic-like sparkle, yes. The finish seen on the Airline Jupiter TT here is a good example of what you can expect.

    • Lefty version?

      Sorry, but we are not planning a left-hand version at this time.

    • What’s final price?

      Hi there, the RS III will be $799 USD.
