Echopark Clarence Rose Special Case Study


“I love Juniors, Teles, some of the Supros and Hagstrums and definitely old Gretches!  Those elements combined to create my overall inspiration.  The main thing that I wanted to do was to figure out how to make an improved one from start to finish 100% by hand.  I want to use my hands, eyes and ears to select and build every part of every instrument.  That was the driving force in the idea behind doing this!” - Gabriel Currie

Here's our first "Case Study" from Gabriel Currie's Echopark Guitars! This Clarence Rose Special has a gorgeous, crystal clear sound, with an alluring mix of bite and sparkle in its voice. The look of the guitar is incomparable -- and sitting front and center in our electric display, it's caught the eye of everyone who's come into the shop over the past week. Full specs are below, but what they won't tell you is how sensitive and inspiring this guitar is to play. Priced with G&G hard case!
