Details

This custom made Red Rocket Atomic Tele combines a lightweight and highly resonant swamp ash body with a solid mahogany neck and rosewood board to provide a wealth of both familiar and unique tones in an exceptional playing and visually stunning package. The Lollar bridge pickup provides classic Tele twang while the TV Jones Classic in the neck position is warm and full with just a touch of natural compression. The Pelham Blue Metallic finish is even more beautiful in person with a very subtle flake that really comes alive when the light hits, with the checkerboard binding bringing the whole visual package together. As always with Red Rocket, the fit, finish, and fretwork are impeccable and the guitar plays even better than it looks (a tall order). If you're in the market for a Tele with unique character and style yet still begs to be played, this Atomic might be the one.

Red Rocket Guitars

Red Rocket creates vibe-soaked guitars inspired by the tail lights on a ’59 Caddy, the two-tone paint on a ’51 Indian Chief dripping with chrome, neon on old diners and cover art from cool old pulp sci-fi magazines; guitars that look like they are from another era but feel like a finely detailed boutique instrument made just for you.
