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.
This one is an Alder solid body, really carved for comfort, with drop top and concave back carve. Creates a super profile when the body is looked at from the top edge. A 50’s style Tim Mcnelly tele bridge pickup, mated with a Warman super warm and sparkly P90 in the neck. The 3 tones can take you from rock and country heaven, to a more scooped jazz or funk sound, and a blows blooming bluesy rock vibe in the neck, all from one guitar!
A carved walnut inlay in the lower horn, with a solid copper tip and lining, custom made knobs and scratchplate, unique to this guitar, finishes off a wonderful playing and utterly easy and familiar guitar
