Our Guitars

 Probett Rocket – OVERVIEW

Inspired by a passion for the classic designs of the 1950`s. The Rocket incorporates the comfortable body shape of the Californian designed guitars with the construction and materials of the classic single cut designs from Michigan. All Rocket models feature a 24 5/8” scale length and a long tenon neck to body joint.

Through experimentation we have decided to use the same adhesives and finishes as were used in the classic period. Tops and headstock facings are attached with Urea formaldehyde resin while, for the fingerboard and neck body joint we use traditional hide glue.

All guitars are finished with traditional nitrocellulose lacquer.

Guitars are shipped in a Hiscox liteflite hard case.
