Bear Retro rockers are a new range designed around classic timeless looks, simple lines and configurations. They will feel like a familiar old friend, gently carved and hand French polished to be lived in, lightweight, super slick neck and set up, tremendous sounds from carefully chosen pickups, many vintage themselves. I want these guitars to feel like coming home, inspiring and comfortable in equal measure, old songs tumble from the pickups, and new ones appear round the corner.
Lightweight swamp ash body with a stunning quilted maple scratchplate and hand made brass only.
A pair of Kent Armastrong toaster pickups, unique single coils modeled on the Rickenbacker pickups, but with a bit more bass and upper mids punching through. Really flexible, really different, the whole package is a completely unique guitar. Paper in oil cap for extra smooth and warm tone control
Maple fingerboard, jescar gold frets, hipshot through bridge with specially milled string ferrules.
‘Utterly unique instrument that sounds and looks like nothing else.
