Josh Grove from Protocaster guitars builds amazing realistic reliced guitars that look, feel and sound like real vintage ones!! Handmade in Williamsburg Brooklyn, Protocasters are shot in real 100% nitro lacquer with no plasticizers which really makes them sound clear and woody like guitars from the 1950's. Josh hand carved all the necks and they really feel amazing!! This one is very light and resonant with a slab rosewood board and an awesome aged candy apple red finish with lots if cool weather checking!!!! Protocaster Guitars is becoming well known for their amazing refinishing and restoration services and their guitars are quickly becoming very popular as an alternative to the mass produced large company guitars!!!
