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 a semi hollowing Alder body with a unique lower horn carving finished off with solid copper. Amazing vintage Gretsch pickups bring some typical bump and grind, when clean the shimmer with the tradition Gretsch tonal duality, something mumbling in the lower minds, complemented with some sparkling highs. Wicked up and these babies just grumble and groan like the reverend Gibbons with a hangover.
So comfortable to play, so easy to fall in love with, this wonderful guitar oozes character and old school vibe, custom made knobs and scratchplate, both featuring solid copper decoration
