Beauty and the Beast - Reviews Airline '59 Town & Country DLX

Same as below, but with an important correction: it is not three micro Alnico Hot-10 Humbuckers (type Airline 3P) but 2 AIRLINE Vintage Voiced Single Coil and 1 Alnico Hot-10 (type Airline '59). and .. this is more like it ... but it's not the same price!

UTILIZATION

comfortable and fast neck (close enough for my small hands)
light
access to acute rather easy.

adjustments are positioned a little oddly ... but forgive him quickly.

big sound immediately

SOUNDS

I wanted a sound with grain ... I found
I use a Marshall JCM900 / it rocks.

mics of the '59 T & C makes the difference compared to a 3P DLX I've tamed in the past.

OVERALL OPINION

2 years of trouble-free after 4 years of good and loyal service Airline 3P DLX one I blow the set aside.

+ the sound is very typical
the - settings that are not necessarily well placed but it is a little better than the 3P dlx ... you have to get used to but it's still attached.

the price seems correct with respect to the finish and the sound quality of the beast.
I did and do this choice with his eyes closed ...
