Just Bought This...

Post by Adey on Mon May 01, 2017 12:29 pm

Not Uncle Mats

A Cimar Astra









It's a bit left field, but in the couple of days I've had it, I've come to really like it. Especially the pick-ups. I think that they are Maxons, althought the marketing blurb calls them Magna-6X's...

Anyone else come across these. I know they are associated with Ibanez and made in the same factory I think.

Nice! sunny
There's something wonderous about this era of MIJ guitar making.
'Pretty hard to go wrong it seems.

I like it! The body shape reminds me of a Guild. Some great design features, such as the 4-2 layout on the headstock.

I'm a big fan already.

Quite a chunky neck, which I hve found that I quite like...

Yes. 25.5" scale

And certainly seems a good 'un. Quality hardware, switches, knobs etc. I like the adjustable tuners.!

Clever design.  Love the old quirky neck though models.  Congrats on a great score!
