Description 

Vintage 1964 Airline Rocket Lap Steel Guitar Consolette with legs Time capsule condition. One of the coolest guitar models ever made. One of our favorite art-deco style models. Valco made with their classic string through pickup. String-through pickups such as the Supro/Valco/National pickups are legendary among the realm of guitar pickups. Looking like humbuckers, yet in essence are large single coil in design. They have that much sought after unique growl. An example of a guitar that had that distinction is the so-called “Coodercaster”. These p’ups put out a sound favored by many slide players. Ry Cooder, Peter Green, Jeff Healy, Jeff Lind, Rick Alexander, Jody Carver, Herb Remington, are some that come to mind. Jason Lollar was impressed enough by their sound & design he made a modern version of them. See Lollar pickups web site under Supro pickups. (Valco/Supro/National are various evolutions/convolutions of the same company.) This one is in Mint condition.
