Of my preferred and favorite guitars that I get inquired about the most was the line of winged Astral guitars and basses I built back in the early 1970’s. They were radical and wild but they worked extremely well with ideas as original as the peg tuners, individual bridges, 26 1/2 inch scale, hexophonic pickups and the sides that were removable and “changeable”.
Pictured to the right is the winged Galaxy Bass with a walnut stick type body and red wing’s which could be changed at will to other colors to match your wildest outfit, and we had some in my original band the Dave Bunker Show
Shown left are just a few of the changeable wing colors which are available on the winged Astral Series.
This flying object had a 26.5 inch scale which I still Custom make on some models.
The solid maple Pro-star™ built in the mid 70’s was known for it’s comfort of design. It has great original features such as Individual Bridges, Fine Tuners, the Tension Free Neck® and reverse on the body tuning, balance is superb, sound even better. We still get orders for this great playing and looking Guitar. Some great artist who used these were Howard Leese, Nancy Wilson, Waylon to name just a few.
