Used – Retrograde Cambridge (2018)

Serial Number: 21

The Cambridge draws it’s inspiration from the department store archtops of the 50s and 60s.  A smaller 14″ lower bout, makes it more familiar to the modern rock and blues guitarist.  The three bolt Catalog Style neck joint is a solid, and functional joint, with threaded steel inserts in the neck heel. Fully hollow construction, a short 24.9 scale, and gold foil pickups, keep the tone and feel sweet and saggy.
