Radicaster

Where it all started back in 1980, the Radicaster is still our most popular model today.

The elegant lines of this solid body, double-cutaway, bolt-neck instrument represents the guitar we always wanted – and knew that others wanted too. As with all our guitars, the Radicaster is built using only the highest quality woods and hardware.  Standard Radicaster features include:

  • Zion design, extended double-cutaway, in your choice of Swamp Ash, Alder, Basswood, or Mahogany
  • 22 fret neck with 12” radius and comfortable “Modified D” back profile (neck is slightly thinner on the treble side for more comfortable playing)
  • Zion Fixed Bridge or Wilkinson VS-100 Tremolo and locking Sperzel tuners
  • DiMarzio or Seymour Duncan pickups in your configuration choice: HH, SSS, or SSH. Traditional pickguard mount or elegant rear-routed body mount
  • 5-Way or 3-Way blade pickup selector switch, Master volume, and tone controls
  • Your choice of finishes
  • Premium Gig-Bag

Radicaster

“I wanted a versatile guitar, and that is exactly what I got. With the five position pickup selector and the Push/Pull capability, I can pretty much get any sound I want to. From twang to heavy metal … the tremolo does a great job of staying in tune. You can tell the guitar is well built by how it rings out when NOT PLUGGED IN! It’s a real pleasure to play.”
