For Sale By Owner

Made in the 1950s or 1960s in Nuremberg, West Germany by August Strohmer. He made guitars with the brand name Astro. It was a very small company. There were only ever 5 employees that worked at the Astro factory even in the guitar boom of the mid 60s.

It's black with bound cats eye sound holes with matching white headstock and pick guard. Very unique looking. Very dark coloured wood fret board with white block fret markers. These guitars aren't easily found here. This one came right from Germany. All original condition including tuners that still turn smoothly. It has just light to average laquer checking and no cracks in the wood anywhere. No bumps or bruises, minimal fret ware. A well preserved specimen. It has a great full warm sound with shimmering highs. I've owned other German guitars made by Hopf, Hoyer, Hofner, Perl Gold, and Isana, and this guitar has a really sweet sound in comparison to some of the other 50s/60s archtops i've had. This is a really nice sounding instrument.

No case included, no trades please, cash only, delivery costs extra if necessary.
