$2,699.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2020 Corsa Rocker in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and build sheet. Handcrafted by Larry Corsa in Pennsylvania, this masterfully built LP-style guitar sports premium tonewoods and features including an NTN (“Next to Nothing”) aged satin finish on the chambered Korina body and neck profile, a high-gloss PGGM nitro lacquer finish on the one-piece tiger flame maple top, Faber hardware, and a Corsa Manalishi “After Lunch” humbucker.

A single-pickup tone machine, the tonewood complement comprises a chambered korina body, one-piece flame maple top, korina neck, and bound Indian rosewood fretboard, featherweight at just 6lbs 3oz. The solitary Corsa Manalishi “After Lunch” humbucker is big and bold, wound for maximum punch with taut, aggressive lows and screaming trebles. This pickup takes gain notably well, remaining articulate no matter how much dirt you throw on it, delivering giant chords and white-hot leads. This Rocker has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action and accurate intonation.

The high gloss PGGM nitro lacquer finish on the one-piece maple top highlights the tight, wall-to-wall tiger flame figuring, and the back and sides have been treated with Corsa’s proprietary NTN Aged Satin finish (with no grain filler), designed for maximum resonance and natural tone. Cosmetic wear limited to a few faint finish scratches. The neck also sports the NTN satin finish, designed to wear via contact with the palm over time, and there’s virtually no wear on the profile.

The original Corsa-branded brown tolex hardshell case is included, along with the build sheet, signed by Larry Corsa and dated September 18th, 2020.
