Our Airline Tuxedo CB (for “center block”) is a tribute to the Barney Kessel Pro model that was produced in the late 1950's and sold under the brand names of both Kay and Airline. This is a maple-and-mahogany hollow-body design with an added maple center block to stabilize the Bigsby tailpiece. The Tuxedo CB also houses two of our proprietary Custom Hi-Output P-90s. The result is a lightweight and versatile guitar that is ready to absolutely sing with a tonal palette suitable for anything from jazz to punk.
