I am now the very fortunate owner of Selmer Astra number 5527/05/1308.
here's a few pictures.




You can see quite clearly the similarity to the Hofner Verithin '66, the body is the same, but all the rest is quite different. I only know of one other.....I'm pretty well pleased with this one Cool  Wink ---

I'm so jealous, I really want a Verithin '66 body with factory-fit DeArmonds ........ Sad

Very nice! Its pretty similar to my selmer diplomat, the differences are that the diplomat has a thicker body and only one cutaway. All the trim, knobs, tailpiece etc are identical.
Regards

Alan

Thanks Alan, I've been trying to get my hands on this one for a while now and I'm extremely pleased that it's now here in QLD. Any sign of some pics of your Diplomat?

Hello there,

I just stumbled upon this webste via a link on ebay and immediately made my way the page discussing the Selmer Astra,
as i've got one of them of course.
I was quite surprised to see a forum for anything to do with Selmer Astra's as i've rarely encountered any info about them online.
My surprise then grew as i read the thread about your purchase of said guitar. Surprise then grew to mild shock as i read the serial number of your guitar.
It seems my guitar had only just one guitar between your guitar on the old production line. I own guitar no. 5527/05 1310

Now I'm aching to see some pictures of your guitar but the pics you posted are not there anymore. . I'd like to ask you a couple of questions about your guitar. I'll post some pics up of mine soon as i get a chance

Cheers,

Chris
