The inspiration for the Astrojet version 2.0 was the 1964 Astro-Jet from Gretsch®. Eastwood Guitars have made a few improvements over the original design, namely using a Bigsby tremolo (optional) rather than the old 60’s Burns model, and changing the middle switch from 3-way tone (mid/bass/treble) to a coil tap for a more versatile guitar.
