AD: Astro Guitars No. 2

"The Custom Combination Guitar"

Here’s another small advertisement for the mysterious Astro Guitars. The ad notes that, when designing a custom instrument, one may select a “tremelo system.” According to Wikipedia, “Tremelo is a municipality located in the Belgian province of Flemish Brabant, in Flanders.” Oh well. Taken from Guitar for the Practicing Musician, September 1986.

  1. The Astro guitar company was founded by Ken Harris and my cousin, Rick Franks. Ken handled the business side and Rick was the Luthier. Both were from SW Pennsylvania and were close friends. I would like to find one for sale.

    1. Tim, I have a strat style Astro if you are interested. Have been hanging onto it for years, but I don’t play it very often. It holds a tune better than any guitar I’ve ever tried. Send me a msg.
