The first of many limited production guitars carrying the artwork and influence of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, debuted at Winter NAMM. Named Rat Fink Guitars, they include the RF1, RF2, and RF3.
The RF1 and RF2 carry the Hot Rod theme with Flat Rat Black or Flat Rat Gray paintwork saluting the back yard hot rodder.
Highlights include Roth style neon acrylic pick guard and head stock plate, in brilliant lime green. The world famous Rat Fink image adorns the body, as does the Rat Fink logo. The chrome neck plate carries over the theme with the Rat Fink logo.
Further, all new "Powered by Lace" humbuckers are standard equipment surrounded by red pickup frames.
The RF3 features all the above features plus an additional Rat Fink emblem. It sports a vintage Pearl White Fink, paint job reminiscent of those early hot rod days in Southern California.
In keeping with the hot rod theme, all Rat Fink guitars come with a set of custom decals featuring flames; pinstripes to customize the guitar tot the player's own desires.
To keep the Rat Fink fresh every year and to use the unlimited creativity of Ed Roth all models will only be available for 1 year. New ones will be introduced though out the years based on Ed Roth's Show cars. Retail prices start at $369.99.
