Based on the Harmony Bobkat model, which was produced from 1963 to 1966, and was also branded by Airline, Supro, Kay and many others, the Bobkat is fun playing guitar that in its day was the “go to” model for students and pros. And the new Airline Bobkat, with a street price of less than $400 US is on target to hit that same market.
With their wild, asymmetric shapes and loudly colored bodies, vintage Mosrite and Airline guitars look undeniably cool. And, in the hands of a guitarist like Jack White, they can sound awesome, too. But these are hardly concert-level instruments.
