Although this Roy Smeck looks like a solidbody guitar, it actually has a chambered body like the Gretsch Jet series of guitars. The Roy Smeck was based on the Harmony Stratotone Jupiter, one of the company’s top-of-the-line guitars in the early 1960s. Like the Jupiter, the Roy Smeck has two pickups, two volume controls, two tone controls and a four-way pickup selector switch. The Jupiter did have an extra blend knob, which the Roy Smeck doesn’t have. But the Roy Smeck does have a very striking pickguard that recalls a lightning bolt or perhaps a cartoon explosion. Smeck started as a showman in vaudeville and it was always important to him that his instruments stand out visually, as this model certainly does!
This guitar has been thoroughly checked over and fully set up by our in house luthiers and is more than ready to get back on the stage again!
