Bassart guitars is a one man show, run by the German luthier Mathias Meyer. The perfect composition of playability, uniqueness and down-to-earth approach of Matthias make Bassart guitars great instruments. The Roaddog is all the way, Malcolm Young kind of guitar (only with a tremolo). It is dry and has a great attack which come really handy when playing rhythm. You will not get endless sustain from the Roaddog, it is not that kind of a guitar.
It is a mid weight guitar with a two action truss, matt finish and two Gretsch Filtertron pickups. The Roaddog is a great example of how a guitar can appear down to earth without being too fancy, yet play and sound top notch. It is that kind of a guitar you will wanna take on the stage, on the road and never put back in the case.
