thanks for the good word!

tv is one of the most abused finishes in the history of life.

damian has it down.

Jk, this thing looks incredible!! One of the best looking guitars I've seen in a long time. Just stumbled across them on Instagram. Glad to see a happy owner!

How much does it weigh?

thanks for the positivity! damian is an incredible builder and human. it’s an absolute pleasure to work with such a highly skilled and brilliant builder. his rocket 59 builds are extremely limited.

his rocket III is killing as well.

Many manufacturers had a superstrat with similar specs in the 80s-90s... here's my 1989 Heritage w/ 25 1/2" scale length.
