The Astro-Sonic is Complete...

Post by Surfysonic » Fri Nov 13, 2020 1:35 pm

The Astro-Sonic is now complete...meet The Jetsons! My Gretsch Partscaster (custom made neck, Mastery Tremolo & Bridge, TV Jones T-Armond pickups, '65 - '68 Gretsch Astro-Jet body, Sperzel Locking Tuners, The Jetsons decals). This beastie roars in all the right ways!
