[NAMM] Sparrow's Von Drat Surf
Sparrow Guitars introduced the Von Drat surf guitar, the newest addition to Sparrow's family of retro guitars which includes the Big Daddy, Primitive, Rat Rod and Twangmaster models.
The Von Drat debuted at the 2009 NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.
The Von Drat joins Sparrow's Rat Rod and Twangmaster as available in the premium "Continental" line. Made in Vancouver, BC Canada, the Von Drat surf guitar features Burns Tri-Sonic pickups, Grover tuners, bone nut and Wilkinson tremolo. With an alder body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, the Von Drat is a 21-fret, 12" radius, 25½" scale length guitar with the volume and tone top-hat knobs and three-way selector switch located at the lower bout for versatility and playability.
The Von Drat is currently available in Tudor Black and Avocado Green, with custom pickguard.
The guitar is the namesake of Toronto, Canada-based surf outfit The Von Drats. The Von Drats were hired by Sparrow Guitars to play an event as part of the 2008 MIAC Show in Toronto, Canada.
