2016 has been a year of new models for Sully Guitars; the Raven has been redesigned, the Revolution will be revealed soon, and today's topic, the release of the Stardust.
The idea was to take the silhouette of the '71 and see what else could be done with it. I wanted to incorporate some retro-futuristic style, but I didn't want to lose the "pointy" aesthetic; for it to be a success, it would have to fit in with the other models, yet stand on its own.
Oh, and I wanted it to look like something that Bowie would have played.
The Stardust is 25.5 scale, features bolt on construction, your choice of the Aero or Raven headstocks (in regular or reversed orientation), slash or block outline inlays, stainless steel frets, with or without a pickguard, and your choice of Hipshot hardtail, two point tremelo, or Floyd Rose locking tremolo. It's available as a 7 string or baritone, and as with all Sully Guitars, no Bigsbys.
Pricing for the Stardust begins at $2350, but to celebrate its launch, I'm offering an early adopter discount; the introductory base price is $2150 for orders placed through the end of 2016!
