Hey, Dude. Dude Ranch Dude. Surf Dude. Rock Dude. Whatever, Dude.

"Bakersfield" Rodeo Deluxe

"Vintage Iced-Tea" Sunburst Flametop with optional "ResoVibe" f-hole Grill



Hey listen, dude. It's real late and I'm tired of writing captions. You know whad' I mean.

But there's so many cool pix here they kinda speak for themselves anyway. Plus there's a spec sheet at the bottom anyway. Bottom line anyway is this is a totally awesome guitar. If you need anything else, just let me know. In the meantime, G'night.

Good Morning! Bright-eyed with 4 cups of Nespresso into the (mid)morning. So back to work: what we have here

is a one-piece solid maple neck (no veneer cap) with a really beautiful figured headstock in matching Iced-Tea finish.

VR 18-1 Ratio Sealed Pearloid Tuners set everything off off nicely. Maybe 2 cups of Nespresso would have been enough. 

Rodeo Deluxe models feature bound Maple and Rosewood fretboards with Double-line binding and colorful Abalone dot markers

Tired of being constantly buzzed? 

VR Wide Open Range Offset-Coils Humbucking Neck Pickup dials in classic Keef crunch.

Dual-blade Bridge Mini-humbucker brings in everything from clean twang to screaming insane.

And all without the [single-coil] buzz - no 12-Step Program required.

Optional metal ResoVibe F-hole grill further kicks up the wild retro ride. Or not.

Rodeo Deluxe models feature exceptionally fine quality woods and high quality componentry.

Beautifully bookmatched Flame-Maple fronts and Backs. Some companies apparently call this phenomenon a "Double 10 Top"

Maple board or Rosewood board? Reso-Vibe Grill or open F-hole?

It's not so much a question of "Either-Or" but more an answer of "Yes and Both."
