Irresistible tone in a pretty package.
Traditional body style with light weight, slim neck, and slick looks make this Daisy Rocker every girl's dream, but even the boys can't resist this one's scrappy tones. The Stardust Retro-H Electric Guitar features a semi-hollow, lightweight basswood body with a slim 24-3/4"-scale rock maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium frets. Daisy Rock vintage mini humbuckers put out scrappy tone. Grover tuners, compensated wraparound bridge, plus volume, tone, and 3-way pickup controls. Dot inlays, a feminine symbol at the 12th fret (on the pink version), and chrome hardware give the Stardust a look any future star will love.

I'm a full-time working guitar player and guitar instructor, who happens to teach a lot of women and girls ages 6-60 (but I also have a lot of male students.) Although I do own many guitars by other well-known traditional brands, I mostly play Daisy Rock guitars in the recording studio, in live performances and at various pro-level jam sessions in Los Angeles. I have brought my Retro-H to blues jams and blues shows, and musicians have always been fascinated by the great tone and look. I always get positive comments, or other pro-level musicians ask me if they can try it out for a song or two. My students usually see me play a Daisy Rock at lessons. The reasons why I do it is because Daisy Rock makes guitars that have a lot of high-quality features that you'd usually find in much more expensive instruments; they're really easy and comfortable to play, and I really like their mission to inspire females to play guitar. I first saw the Retro-H guitar hanging on a wall at Daisy Rock's offices in Los Angeles, and it was love at first sight. The design with the Bigsby tremolo arm and only one f-hole on the side (instead of two) is so classy. I picked it up and the slim neck with its slight satin finish felt fantastic. Without plugging it in to an amp yet, the acoustic tone of it was surprisingly rich. My hands are tiny (as small as the hands of some of my pre-teen students), so bending strings and playing barre chords was always a bit of a struggle for me when I started playing. With this guitar, playing wide bends a la Albert King is a breeze. And it stays in tune most of the time. I play this guitar at three-hour shows, and I never have a problem with it. If you like how 335 guitars sound, you'll really like this one. It has that singing sound that's great for bluesier music (I play soul, funk, blues and blues rock mostly), but it doesn't sound like a 335, it has it's own character. The mini-humbucker pickups do have a lot of low end, so I play it through a Kustom tube combo amp (Fender style) that is a little brighter, so that creates a great balance in tone. I love my guitar. It is part of my signature sound that I'm striving to create (as many musicians do), and I'd be absolutely heartbroken if I lost it or something happened to it. My Retro-H is a gem!
I bought the Retro-H for my wife, and what a nice suprise! Out of the box, tuned, and playing in 5 minutes. Nice construction, mini humbuckers produce nicely. Nothing fancy, just straight ahead fun. Ive been playing for 25 years, and the thinner neck is great for speed. Wife picked the color (Ice Blue)and the finish is top notch. For the price, you cannot get a finer starter.
In what seems like record shipping time, this axe appeared with celerity. I had wanted a guitar to perve at and play fairly quicly on a daily basis. I didn't want the hassle of taking it out of a case every time I wanted to practise!I haven't heard the sound of it (through an amp) yet as my garret is too small to pursue this particular bliss. However, to look at it is a thrill and playing it is a cinch. The action is slightly high, but this okay as I consider it a challenge which I gladly meet!This bad boy stays in tune thanks to the Grovers. The bottom E string tends not to play as loudly as the others, but this may be negligible once I start recording with it. Overall, a very nicely built guitar and I'm used to the ice-blue sparkle now. The grain on the back of the neck is fabulous! Very sexy.D. H. Spider
I've been wanting a semi-hollow for awhile now, and after tons of research, I finally concluded that I had to try-out the Daisy Rock Stardust Retro-H Electric. What a great buy! Yep, I'm a chick, and even though I've been playing piano and bass for 10+ years, I still always felt limited on the guitar due to my small hands. From the moment I started playing this guitar, I felt an immediate improvement to my overall playing style (much better flow). Maybe it's good I spent all those years playing on a much wider neck, but I'm certainly not going to pass-up an opportunity to make it easier for me - especially when this guitar not only looks great, but the sound and tone is seriously good. I'll still keep playing my old acoustic-electric just to keep my hands challenged, but the Retro h is what I'll be recording with from now on. It was nearly perfect right out of the box, a light guitar, but built solid - if you put it under a microscope, I'm sure the finish is not perfect, but from what I could see, it was beyond good enough for the price value. Nothing was loose, all the chrome hardware is definitely fine quality, and although you can easily make adjustments to this guitar to suit your liking, I didn't need to do anything but tune it and play!
This was my first electric guitar, and for the price, it's unbeatable. The grover tuners are great. It also has a very thin neck which makes it a bit easier to play. The only problems I had with it were the screws coming out on the pick ups, but that was easily fixed. It also had a buzzing sound to it, but I replaced the 9 gauge strings with 10 gauge and raised the bridge. On top of all of that, the finish is very nice, and I get a lot of compliments on it. Definitely a good guitar for any skill level.
can't believe nobody reviewed this guitar yet.... well let me be the first. This box rocks a neck like butter sweet tone whatttttt? I've been playing forever and have lots of americian wood, strats, sg, guild, and this is the guitar thats always in my hands... maybe because i play open D TUNINGS AND THE SLIM neck is great for baring with my thumb.Nice finish,good pick ups heck even the stock strings sound good. Daisy Rock guitars are made for women and are a bit smaller and have thin necks... great for smaller hands but guys don't get hung up on the girls guitar thing ....as long as you don't get a pink one,after all its just a guitar not a symbol of your manhood. I love it!... even got a daisy rock acoustic/electric and same story a great but little known guitar get one while they last such a steal... should not be overlooked!
I have 5 guitars and have been playing for many years. I just came across the information about Daisy Rock and how it is made especially for smaller hands. So I bought this one and it is even better than I anticipated. Easy to use for people with small hands and lightweight. I took it out of the box, tuned it, plugged it into a Line 6 amp and it was amazing!~ Thank you Daisy Rock.
Got one Sunday, and I'm lovin' it. This is marketed as a "girl" guitar, but I'm an old guy, and I just don't care -- it's a hot instrument, period. Light weight, well-balanced, great clean tone, and a screamer with distortion. The neck is the best feature; supposedly, it's designed for small hands, but it just feels right. Thin at the nut and widens noticeably, which is perfect. I'm already writing a new song...
