    It's an old Eastwood Airline model. http://www.eastwoodguitars.com/
    On OU812, it was used for slide work on "A Apolitical Blues".

    Ed has 3 guitars in that pic, the top one is a mid sixties TEISCO DEL REY, in the middle there's the Frankenstein, and the last one is the early sixties AIRLINE.

    If you have that GUITAR WORLD, the poster has that info.

    I think you are correct, as I seem to have them backwards. Nicely done.
