    Each of our guitars comes with a lifetime limited warranty. Eastwood warrants all instruments to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original retail purchaser owns it. Electronics, tuning machines, and other moving parts are warranted for a period of one year from the date of original purchase.

    Warranty upgrade options are available here.

    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 bringing the two pickup version back, 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.
