Review About Royal Blue
Thank you, Bootlegger! My guitar arrived as beautifully as I expected. The quality of this instrument makes itself known as soon as you have it in your hands! The “shallow C” neck. is absolutely love! And the sound from the 98’s pickups, 5-way switch, and push-pull pots give you the versatility to jam your way!
This guitar is obviously a labor of love. Thank you, Chuck, and the collaborative work from Steve Stine and Reno Paulson! I am glad I bought from Bootlegger and am proud to own a Royal!
