Echopark Clarence Rose


“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

Our newest batch of Echopark guitars are starting to trickle in...our first is this stunning Clarence Rose model! This guitar has vibe for days. From the silver rose over cranberry finish, to the transparent tortoise pickguard (look closely and you'll see the wiring under the guard), to the ivory colored tuner buttons...all the subtle details add up to an extremely cool, unique guitar.

This guitar is very lively and resonant, easy to play, and its 'fat-but-not-too-fat' neck carve feels great in your hand (somewhere between a '58-'59 reissue Les Paul carve). The pickups are a highlight on this model. The bridge P90 pickup has all the snarl and midrange bite you'd expect from a great P90 - but - with added snap and twang thanks to the chopped Tele bridge and saddles. The neck pickup, to our ears, sounds like a really good, really fat Strat neck pickup (awesome clarity, power, and bell-like chime). This pickup combination balances incredibly well and gives you a lot of tonal variety in one guitar. This is a fantastic guitar that will easily hold its own unique place in any collection. Priced with G&G hard case.
