In the mid 80's Chevrolet licensed the design of the ’57 Chevy tail fin to American Showster. In 1986 The AS-57 was born offering the same color variations as the ’57 Chevy and an actual working taillight on the guitar body.
Every American Showster guitar is hand constructed in the state of New Jersey by an American Showster certified luthier. The AS-57 is our flagship guitar that continues to embrace a unique look and one of a kind sound that only real American made guitars can produce.
AS-57 Guitar HistoryIn 1983 Chevrolet licensed the design of the ’57 Chevy tail fin to American Showster. In 1986 The AS-57 was born offering the same color variations as the ’57 Chevy and an actual working taillight on the guitar body.
Since then the guitar along with the other remaining stock of the American Showster guitars has been sitting dormant waiting for an opportunity to reemerge. Now with rock music on the up rise and new unique sounds coming from new unique artists, we figured it was time to release an old unique guitar.
