The Rastacasta Standard is made to our exacting standards. It delivers a lot of bang for the buck with same basic design as the Deluxe model. The Rastacasta Standard features chrome hardware and nickel frets with three traditionally wound single coil pickups wired with volume, master tone and blender pots.
This wiring design allows tones not found in the standard 5-way switch setup that most guitars of this type offer. Blender wiring allows the blending of either the neck or bridge pickups with the selected pickup. This allows all three pickups to be engaged at the same time, emanating funky and Tele like tones not found elsewhere.
The Rastacasta also flaunts features found only on guitars costing much more, like pocketed frets and a perfectly balanced design. This guitar has been designed for a professional on a budget.
