The Korean Made "Retronix" series instruments by J.Backlund Design
The "Retronix" Series instruments by J.Backlund design were intended to be a lesser expensive version of John Backlunds designs.
There were only 168 units total of both guitars and basses made with the Retronix brand. so they should be considered to be very rare.
Remember the Gibson Moderne reissues from 82-84 had only 143 units made total.
All the Retronix models were available with either rosewood or maple fretboards.
The guitar had a choice of bridges, being either a Vibrato or a hardtail, while all the basses were hardtail only
there were a total of 7 colors of the 6 string guitars made
cobalt Blue metallic
and hot rod red metallic
the basses were only made in 5 of those colors.
Hot rod Red Metallic
All units came with "Dracowyre" branded custom made Pickups
The pick guard or "Accent Plate" came in either tortoise shell or White Pearloid
Most instruments came with a Retronix Branded Hardshell case
All units were personally set up by myself at the 6921 Middle Valley Rd Shop.
