Miss Blues “Roadster”

Some players like to feel the weight of a guitar on their shoulders, and the Roadster does not disappoint.

Made of a thick, solid piece of mahogany, the sheer mass of this piece creates a sustain that lasts for ages. The influence of motorcycle design is evident in the pickguard’s shape, which resembles the fuel tank of a classic motorbike. Also, note the unique profile of the binding (the black strip running around the body), which has a variable width, adding to the dynamics of the whole.

Solidity, speed, and sustain—that’s what this guitar is all about.
