The ’59 Coronado is another great entry in the Eastwood Guitars Airline selection of instruments. The ’59 Coronado is a tribute to the Supro Coronado that was originally made by Res-O-Glas. Newer artists like Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys use the Supro Coronado for it's classic tone. But back to the '59 Coronado...this guitar sounds and plays amazing, and looks super cool too. It’s got a unique shine to it, and you can be pretty sure that you won’t see too many out there playing a similar style axe, particularly at local gigs.
While the Coronado is based on the Res-O-Glas model, it has been upgraded. The Coronado features a tone-chambered mahogany body. It also features rubber body bindings and a Tone Pros bridge. These are all differences from the original model. In addition to the mahogany body, the new model has a bolted-on, bound Maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard with block markers. It uses Alnico Hot-10 humbuckers and a BIGSBY tremolo. The instrument has two volume controls, two tone controls, and a three way switch with a vintage switchplate. It uses Grover style hardware in nickel and chrome. Read more
