The Classic Rock Series delivers the look, feel and performance of the much sought-after vintage instruments from the Golden Era of electric guitars. At the heart of each CR Series guitar is the specially designed ClassicRocker pickups for an authentic vintage rock sound and response. These pickups are built for that classic PAF tone.
The new CR300 was designed to produce an authentic vintage single-cutaway set-neck solidbody guitar sound and feel without the vintage price tag. Get that original PAF tone and feel which evoke the timeless sounds of the 50's and 60's.
The new CR300's time-tested classic design features a single-cutaway body, 15mm (19/32") carved premium maple top and set-neck construction.
15mm (19/32") Maple Top
The thick carved 15mm (19/32") Maple top on Mahogany body is a classic wood combination that simply cannot be beat: thick, cutting, warm, rich, full and sweet.
EMG Retroactive FAT 55 Pickup Sets
The EMG RetroActive Fat 55 dual humbuckers provide the best of two worlds: warm and sweet vintage-style tones with all the benefits of active low impedance output.
Tune-O-Matic Bridge With Stop Tailpiece
The revered Tune-O-Matic bridge with stop tailpiece provides the classic look for single-cutaway guitars and the all-important transfer of strings' vibrational energy into the body.
2 Volume, 2 Tone Control
The classic 2-volume and 2-tone control layout produces a wide variety of great sounds.
3 Way Pickup Selector
The 3-way toggle switch selects either humbucker or both.
Set Neck Construction
Set-neck construction produces a sound and feel that is quite different from bolt-on with enhanced sustain and a more focused midrange sound that cuts through the mix like hot knife through butter.
Vintage Style Machine Heads
The vintage-style machineheads exude a cool retro vibe while still providing excellent tuning stability and functionality.
Semi Gloss Finish
The CR300's semi-gloss finish exhibits the best qualities of both gloss and satin finishes, providing a luxurious look that also feels smooth to the touch.
