The futuristic model features a unique switching system, Rocket Booster 5 humbuckers, and a 25.5" scale.
Nashville, TN (July 25, 2018) -- Houston, the Astro has landed! Designed and hand-built by guitarist Brian Nutter, Astro’s retro-futuristic design still feels right at home with more traditional designs. Astro unique wiring allows for multiple configurations of the pickups. You become the tone master living in a tweaker’s paradise, no matter the venue. If the multi-function doesn’t make you the musical Buck Rogers, then the familiar feel and vintage ultra-modern form will.
Fully handmade in Nashville, TN, Astro employs traditional materials such as an Alder body, maple bolt-on neck, Bolivian Rosewood fretboard, a familiar 25.5” scale, and 22 jumbo frets to prove a truly unique instrument can be created outside the typical vintage norm:
- One-of-a-kind pickups-switching controls for ultimate variety of tones
- Goldo and Kluson hardware for top performance and durability
- Nutter Guitars’ own Rocket Booster 5 Humbucker pickups
- Nitrocellulose finishes
- Contoured neck heel and body for effortless higher fret access
Astro may be the new kid on the block in NG’s established line, but Nutter guitars can be seen and heard on albums, and on worldwide tours and television appearances by Keith Urban, Danny Rader (of Keith Urban), Lee Brice, Dierks Bentley, Michael Britt of Lonestar, and Chris Nix with Jonathan Davis of Korn, among others.
The Astro has a suggested retail price of $2,950.
