The Contour Hot Rod is our take on the classic design of 1959-1962 with its ash body and rosewood board, but with a used a modded vide from its added bridge and neck humbuckers (with coil tap). We chose the parts we liked from each year and added a flatter radius, jumbo frets, our own US-made tremolo with Raw Vintage saddles and springs for a classic guitar with none of the issues found in the originals. The Hot Rod is not a one trick pony – it can cover all the bases from metal to classic rock, and do them all with ease.
