    My old mid-'60s Gretsch Astro Jet body/neck by "Jack Daniels" on the other Gretsch forum some years back now has a new name on the headstock...I dub thee...The Astro-Sonic! Since not a fully legit Gretsch, I wanted to give it my own moniker.

    I wish the new headstock logo was a bit bigger but it's understandable that my guitar tech had only so much room to work with. I'm loving it! :)

    Yes, that's a little UFO with an alien zooming after the "C". :cool:

    Thanks, guys! :) I should find a Jetson's Astro decal for the pickguard or truss rod. :cool:

    Thanks! :)

    Got some Jetsons (whole family in spacecar, Astro, and Elroy) decals! Hope to use one or two on the pickguard. May have to scan, shrink, and then print out as a vinyl or waterslide to put one on the truss rod cover. :cool:

    Not going to put any decals on this body. :oops:

    Your attention to detail is stellar...pun intended. That tremlo arm with the spaceship is top shelf. Even my wife loves it, and she is not a big guitar fan.
