Unique body shape, retro chic, and high quality characteristics at a remarkably low price.
The Rogue Lipstick Electric Guitar has the features guitarists ask for. A 5-position switch with specialized combos provides an abundance of tone combinations.
Unheard of in this price range, the Rogue Lipstick has a mahogany body with a maple neck and compound radius rosewood fingerboard. Grover tuning machines, an adjustable bridge and anchored tailpiece and 22 jumbo frets keep you playing, not adjusting and tweaking. Dual position strap buttons on the guitar's tail-end ensure you can get your axe right where you want it, plus they make it more stable when set on its end.
Rogue has put equivalent efforts into this guitar's looks. With very cool retro sparkle finishes, chrome hardware, and chrome bar pickups - you've got your rockabilly twanger on! If you've been looking for an electric guitar with the right stuff at the right price, your search is over.

When you buy a guitar for this price and pay no shipping it is not supposed to be worth a lick. You expect that something won't work or will be flawed in some major fashion. None of this is the case with this guitar. I got the sivler sparkle and the value is unheard of. The neck is probably the best part of this guitar. It is the unfinished maple/rosewood combo common to strats. The neck taper is literally perfect unless you like playing baseball bat necks. It is slightly and I mean slightly thicker than a slim profile sg or lp but slightly thinner than a C-shaped strat and with the unfinished finish to boot the neck is a dream. The pickup configuration leaves a little to be desired. It is the basic strat 5 position setup. I was hoping to get a pickup option that used all three pickups at once, but this being the redheaded stepchild of a strat and les paul, you get what you get and you don't pitch a fit. Finish is very thick? I purposely tried to scratch it and could not leave a mark. All in all for an at home practice guitar to preserve my slim necked les paul this is an out of this world value. Excellent setup job on the neck and action. Neck is straight and action is as good as my very nice les paul guitar and former prs and tele. It is though, very difficult to find a hard case to fit this guitar properly as it is too big for a standard les paul case. Why a hard case you ask?Because this guitar is truly good enough(with a pickup and configuration change) to play on the road every night, and I plan on doing just that with this guitar.
I have an arsenal of higher end guitars (Gretsch's, Pauls, Strats, Taylors, etc.). I find amusement in buying cheap Chinese made guitars to find out why some of them are so cheap. In fact, I find out why a lot of them are. Not this one. I took it out of the box and with the exception of tuning it, found it completely ready to play. Action was better than I thought. The frets were nice and neat. It will have the typical hum in the 1, 3, and 5 positions- as will most single coil pickups. In position 1, this thing has the same rhythm ring of a Tele. In position 4, think S.R.V. and that quacky strat tone. The Grover tuners moved very smoothly. Oh yeah, for the cheap change I got it for, it blew it away. Put on a nice set of Ernie Balls or D'Addarios (I prefer 10's) and you're ready to gig.
I bought the blue sparkle lipstick Rogue. It sounds as anticipated through an old tube 1-12" combo, which is good. This is great for country, trash-a-billy, slide, or Chris Isaak tunes.
This is a sweet guitar. For the price you can't beat it. The set up on this one was great. Intonation was dead on. The lipstick pick ups sound great and the workman ship was great except for the frets needed a little dressing up due to some sharp edges. The grover tuners work well and stay in tune. I did change out the strings for better sound. Used tonight in practice and it sounded great. It looks fantastic and the finish is flawless. I am impressed that a guitar this inexpensive can look and sound so good. I'm glad I bought it.
Too bad this is a close out item. It is one of the best kept secrets that I have seen in a while. If you were ever thinking of getting a Danelectro, this sounds exactly the same, and is in a much, much better body with much higher quality appointments.Right out of the box, except for low action, I was able to tune it up and play for a couple hours, sounding just like that old Dan Twang!And it's flawless!This is one heck of a deal!!
An amazing deal for a guitar that none of your friends will have -- but all will envy once they see and hear it. Great combination of features. Way better built than the Danos. If you're looking for something that no one else has, that sounds and plays great, and is dirt cheap, this is it.
