The Memphis Rocket and Memphis Rocket Deluxe are the red headed step child of Postal Guitars..
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 the time it is tough
Though I knew the world did not need another Stratocaster for some reason people were always giving me guitars they had sitting around unused (alway Strats).
I would keep the ones that were solid wood.
So I started making the Memphis Rocket.
I designed a shape that could be cut out of a Stratocaster and added a hand fabricated pickguard, high end electronics as well as refinishing and distressing the guitars.These guitars I was able to sell for less.
So many people liked the design as it was not trying to be a Strat, so I finally got over myself and designed the Memphis Rocket from scratch with a chambered body
taking a shape that was all it's own.
That tuned into the Memphis Rocket Deluxe.
The Rocket Deluxe can be ordered with any pickup configuration. With a Bigsby, knife edge or Term King tremolo. It comes with the 25.5 inch scale neck and Carved Scroll headstock. You can order the tilt back carved headstock.
They are now part of the family as they to start out life as a board.
