J. Backlund Designs Launches New Brand Retronix via Kickstarter

Tuesday, July 17, 2012| by Will Chen

Ever hear of J. Backlund guitars? Imagine if you will the electric guitar as depicted in The Jetsons cartoon. The high dollar custom company has recently launched a Kickstarter project for a Korean made version of their JDB-800 model under the new Retronix brand. Early backers at the $500 pledge level can choose a reward of a Retronix R-800 guitar in one of eight colors with either a tremolo or hard-tail. After the early back goal is met, the price rises to $600. If the $75,000 Kickstarter goal is met, the guitars are planned to be sold with a MSRP of $1,000. Those interested in backing the project, should visit the official Kickstarter page for more information.  The below image is a prototype of the new line.
