Spec Sheet
2015 Probett Rocket – Think the LP you wish FENDER (or Gibson Made)
Description:

People ask me ‘what’s the closest thing to a Gustavsson’…well, this might just be it….and 40% of the price too!  Hand crafted one at a time.  OLD growth woods.  Custom shaped necks.  Hand inlaid bindings.  Painstakingly created by one person.

For years I have heard the legend of Probett.  They are hard to find. They are kept by their owners.  They are coveted.  FINALLY I have laid my hands on one.  Let me tell you that my mentors were not wrong on this front.  Think of playing the finest Gibson product from days gone by…..NOW envision that in a much more ergonomic “F” style format.  BINGO…you get it!

This 2015 Probett Rocket features a 1-piece OLD GROWTH HONDURAN mahogany body & a flat sawn Curly Eastern Maple Top.  Mahogany Neck & an Amazonian Rosewood Board.  The neck specs are just about dead on a ’59 LP (.88″ – .95″ and a C profile).  24.75″ Scale & 1-11/16″ Width.  Of course it is a bound neck.  I LOVE the Gotoh K-style tuners.  Let’s face it…tuning a F headstock is a lot easier in the dark than a G style.

The weight is a WOW 7lb-15oz.  Custom hand wound Bulldog pickups.  Light aging is included at no cost to you (LOL).

Tonally…just that tight fat responsive LP you wish FENDER made (or Gibson for that matter). The notes are clear and not mushy.  The guitar sustains and notes bloom.  THIN nitro finish.  This FEELS like a hand created OLD guitar.  This isn’t one of those ‘photographs well but is underwhelming’ pieces.  This is upper echelon.

I’ve been doing this a long time.  My sense is these are on the upswing in terms of prices and desirability.  I have spooookennnnnnnnnnn
