Deluxe Roadhouse



The latest model in Classic Copper Red


The Roadhouse Deluxe is a guitar that has 3 incarnations and the changes each time have been significant. So much so that they are really three different guitars. The first version was launched in 2008 the second in 2014 and the last one in 2016. A brief comparison of the specifications shows what I mean.
