Hot off the wait list for the past 10 months. Limited to 12. Here’s your chance to get
a sexy hot rodded vintage styled Baritone!
Weight: 7.8 lbs.
The Airline Map is our tribute to the ever-stylish National Newport — or Map Guitar — from the 1960s. Icons of the studio and stage have recognized the draw of the vintage National guitars’ Valco designs, from The Cure’s Robert Smith to The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.
Our Map is crafted from tone-chambered mahogany rather than the original Res-O-Glas bodies of the mid-century, which adds stability while still focusing on the model’s famous resonant tone. Factor in the two Alnico Hot-10 humbuckers, and you’ve got a modern tone monster with familiar controls and all of the mojo of a vintage National — now as a 27” scale-length baritone!
This limited version of the Map Baritone includes the Z-Glide customization to the back of its neck. Invented by company founder Dean Zelinsky, the revolutionary Z-Glide guitar neck is achieved by precisely engraving a carefully tested pattern into the back of the neck. Your hand only comes in contact with 30% of the neck… the rest is air! The result is an ultra fast neck with a consistent, silky-smooth feel.
