Boutique Luthier Jon ‘Sully’ Sullivan Debuts The Astro
The Astro is a Custom Series model, made to order in the USA in an array of hardware configurations & unique finishes.
Small builder Sully Guitars is back with the Astro - a unique set neck 24-fret model focused on upper fret access & “inspired by beloved moments in classic rock history.” The Astro is a Custom Series model, made to order in the USA in an array of hardware configurations & unique finishes. You may have noticed another Astro recently -longtime Sully artist Perfecto De Castro partnered with Soldano to use the Astro prototype guitar in demo videos for Soldano’s own Astro amplifier.
Sully is attending the NAMM show, Astroprototype in tow, at booth 4717-19 as part of the Boutique Guitar Showcase. If you’re attending, you have to try the Astro for yourself to see why Sully’s neck profile, fretwork, & attention to detail are the talk of the guitar-building community.
“The Astro is a total labor of love. I always wanted to take a swing at this shape, & after a lot of fine-tuning, it really took on a life of its own. What I love about the Astro, & something that surprised me, is that it’s sort of a musical Rorschach test. When I hand a guitarist an Astro, everyone plays a different riff & tells me a different iconic musician it reminds them of. I think the shape connects with your early musical memories & helps channel them into your own music.”
-Jon Sullivan, President/Founder Sully Guitars
