Retrorocket Pro Electric Guitar
Both novice and experienced guitarists agree that the Retrorocket is a no-frills tone machine, with quality craftsmanship, a classic appearance and a comfortable neck. The Retrorocket Pro brings the power of infinite sustain to the most popular guitar body shape in the world, featuring a Solid Ash body, bolt-on Maple neck, 22-fret Rosewood fingerboard, 2 single coil - 1 humbucker pickup configuration including the patented Fernandes Sustainer™ System for maximum sustain at the flick of a switch.
The Retrorocket Pro includes the Fernandes Sustainer® bringing the power of infinite sustain at an affordable price. Since the 1960's, electric guitar players have been searching for an effective way to control sustain and feedback. The Fernandes Sustainer® puts that power at your fingertips. Fernandes has a patented technology that allows players to produce Hendrix-like textures and tonal colorings at any volume level. The Sustainer works with single notes or chords and can be adjusted to give swells or a gradual decay to the sustain. The Fernandes Sustainer® is a specially designed electronic system for electric guitar that creates controllable sustain of any single or group of notes in the instrument's sound range. This means that the string(s) will ring at constant intensity indefinitely until stopped, regardless of output and location, even if your guitar is not connected to an amplifier!
What Can the Fernandes Sustainer® do for you?
Bring your creativity to new levels by using the Sustainer with any combination of gear in your arsenal of effects, amp modelers and home recording equipment. Discover new sounds exploring the world of controlled sustain and feedback. How do you get natural sustain using digital effects? The Fernandes Sustainer® is the way!
How does it work?
The patented Fernandes Sustainer® system generates a magnetic field causing the strings of the guitar to vibrate. Powered by a 9-Volt battery, the interaction of the bridge humbucking pickup(B), the Sustainer Circuit Board(C) and the neck Sustainer Driver pickup(A), projects magnetic pulses that continuously vibrate the strings of the guitar, the same way an amplifier at extreme volume would do, yet totally controlled! The result is infinite sustain and/or feedback using sparkly clean or loud distorted settings without the need for excessive volume or extra outboard gear!
