Red Rocket Guitars in the USA custom builds retro boutique guitars such as this Thinline Tele in Heritate Orange, equipped with Fralin Blues Special Tele bridge and a Vintage Vibe "Charlie Christian" in the neck. It also comes with an optional set of magnets and it is wired for volume and tone controls with a premium paper-in-oil tone capacitor on a 4 way switch, which provides for a range of tones from vintage jazzy to hard and bright, and the hum-cancelling position where the sound gets big.
The body is Chambered Ash, double bound with ivoroid and checker purfling, with the controls being rear mounted with exotic wood covers, and also features Red Rocket's very attractive own design f-hole.
The flame maple neck is finished in a vintage tint nitro and has a Paduak fingerboard - real mother of pearl position markers and side dots, '59 LP (.89-.98) profile, 1 11/16” graph-tech nut, 22 medium jumbo stainless frets, machine bolts with threaded inserts, double acting truss rod in heel, 9.5" radius, and a Custom Paduak truss rod head plug.
The vintage style tele bridge has compensated brass barrels, fingerpicker's cutout, 2 extra mounting screws to increase stability and extra thick chrome, the best. Other Hardware includes Electrosocket, Sperzel Trim-lok tuners, and chrome barrel knobs.
