MEMPHIS ROCKET

     he Memphis Rocket and Memphis Rocket Deluxe are the red headed step child of Postal Guitars..

I was thinking about how many people talked to me about wanting one of my guitars but they did not have the funds.

Building by hand the way I do using the best parts I can and allot of time it is tough. 

     Though in my mind one thing I knew was the world did not need another Stratocaster for some reason people were always giving me guitars they had sitting around unused.  I would keep the ones that were not plywood. 

     So I started making the Memphis Rocket.  I designed

a shape that could be cut out of the shape of a Stratocaster and added a hand fabricated pickguard and high end electronics as well as refinishing and distressing the guitars.These guitars I was able to sell for less.

   Many people seemed to like the design as it was not trying to be a strat.  So I finally decided to get over myself and design a Rocket from scratch with a chambered body

taking a shape that was all it's own. This is the Memphis Rocket Deluxe.

     The Rocket Deluxe can be ordered with any pickup configuration.

    With a Bigsby or knife edge tremolo. There are any number of ways to take it.

     The Rocket Deluxe comes with the 25.5 inch scale neck and the tilt back carved headstock.

     They are now part of the family as they to start out life as a board.  Though every once in awhile I still knock a and old style distressed Rocket for fun.
