The Rocket II is a deceptively sophisticated design. Session ace Matte Henderson helped bring the Rocket's concept into the world, originally as a bolt-neck guitar, and Damien brought it into the set-neck world. Love Strats, Teles, and LPs but can't decide which to get? Enter the Rocket.
The top half of the Rocket's body is all Strat - the bottom half of the body is all Tele (with a few tweaks). Meaning, contours for the top half of the body and no contours for the bottom half (comfort while standing or while seated). Best of both worlds! Add to this recipe some very Gibson-like features - set neck, neck carve, scale length, pitched headstock - and you've got one hell of a cool, versatile, tone-filled guitar that is incredibly addictive. You did notice the headstock, yes? One of the coolest headstock designs we've seen!
The build quality is extraordinary. Every aspect of the build, down to the subtlest of details, is spot on. Tonally, this is a huge sounding guitar that will easily make your LP or Strat nervous about the chopping block.
Condition: Near Mint.
We can't say enough about Damian's guitars - don't mean to gush, but they're simply that good. Not to be missed if you're in any way, shape, or form a fan of the classic electric designs. Priced with original Hiscox hardshell case.
