At Rascal we follow time honoured traditions to craft your guitar from only the best woods. An alder body matched with figured maple, either in the neck, top or fretboard, we believe, makes the best use of beautiful materials and the finest of guitars. We are happy to discuss the use of other responsibly sourced woods but we do not use any tropical hardwoods in the production of our instruments. Mahogany, Rosewood and Ebony make better ecosystems than they do guitars.
If its good enough for Leo Fender then it's good enough for us. As standard all Rascal bodies are built from responsibly sourced Swedish Alder.
We think this tiger striped wood makes the most beautiful necks, tops & fretboards, giving your licks a flair that will make other guitarists jealous.
Birdseye maple needs no introduction, its look and finish, especially in the neck, will turn your look, as well as your music, into art.
