Stardust Retro-H De-Luxe
Artists who play this guitar:
The Retro-H is the coolest looking guitar with the Bigsby vibrato and one F-hole, but it also sounds great and feels really good to play. As any serious musician, I strive to develop my own sound, and the Retro-H is an essential part of it.

"Daisy Rock is a wonderful company because it caters to young musicians who are in the same spot we were in 10 years ago. We were just young girls trying to find instruments like these to help start our career. Daisy Rock makes guitars that look good and sound good! We're so excited that they are expanding and becoming more accessible to young musicians. They won't regret getting a Daisy Rock guitar!"
"I love Daisy Rock and their incredible support of women in music! The Stardust Retro-H De-Luxe is such a stunning guitar, I know it will always look fantastic on stage and sound just as great!"
"When I first saw the Ruby Sparkle Stardust Retro-H De-Luxe electric guitar it was love at first sight! But then I thought- well, it looks super fancy but can it deliver a great sound? I had always heard that Daisy Rock made the best guitars for woman- not only because of their stellar craftsmanship and variety of styles but specifically because of their slim easy necks which make it easy for your hands to move around. They say don't judge a book by it's cover but with the Daisy rock guitars you can! Now with my retro age guitar- not only will I look like a retro goddess while I play it on stage but I can create that flavorful retro sound that fits my style of music so perfectly! Thanks Daisy Rocks

I can't believe that your company exists. I'm just starting to learn how to play the guitar and your Metallic Pink Retro-H was just the thing that I needed to work through the frustration of learning how to play. Just seeing it and imagining myself playing it makes me soo excited. Me and a friend of mine are going to start up a girl rock band once we know our instruments better. She has her eye on the Elite. You guys are so awesome. But please keep the Metallic Pink Retro-H until the end of the summer. That's when I can get enough money together to afford it. I luv you guys and I'm going to promote you too all of my girl friends until each one of them knows about you. Thanks so much!!

Hey, my name is Eddie Whelan, my mom and I bought my little sister Katie a Daisy Rock Retro-H guitar for Christmas and I’m teaching her how to play. She is only nine but is learning fast and loves her guitar. We bought this guitar for her, since I had heard they were built smaller and had a shorter scale, I though it would be easier for her to learn how to play if it wasn’t so hard on her little hands. Well the weird thing is after playing around with this guitar I fell in love with it! I have played Strats, Jazzmasters, Les Pauls, and SG’s and I still would prefer this guitar over any one of those guitars. Its action and feel are incredible. The sound and simplicity that come with the Retro-H make it a fantastic and fun guitar to play . I plan on buying one of my own very soon, Thanks!

HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE RETRO-H
HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE RETRO-H
by Jeff Garvin, DaisyRock artist
Studio time is something indie musicians lust for. We eat in, we save up, we hold off on buying the new radiohead album, we put our quarters in coffee cans and pray for the opportunity to live like rock stars for a few days.
I had the divine pleasure to spend this weekend in the studio, laying down tracks with my band, 7k. It was a rock and roll experience in the purest form: junk food, no sleep or daylight, and mountains of glorious, mind-numbing feedback.
Having only recently acquired my shiny new black Daisy Rock Retro-H, I brought it along, fully intending to use it on at least one song. Didn't I owe my fine sponsors that much? Besides, I could test drive it a bit, push it around, and see how it responded. But NO WAY was it going to replace my baby, my main axe, the 'other woman,' the guitar of my dreams: my tobacco-sunburst American Stratocaster. Are you kidding me? I ordered it custom from a mom-and-pop shop in my hometown when I was still a teenager. I waited six months for that thing and spent countless hours conning my father into buying it for me. No way.
But, I would use the Retro on at least one song.
Well, I'm at once sad and invigorated to report that my Strat did a fine job of holding my guitar rack firmly on the floor. I fell so hard for the Retro-H that I used it exclusively on every single song we tracked.
My setup was ridiculously simple - just my Retro-H plugged directly into my amplifier - no reverb, no eq, no digital effects, just the instrument and the amp. That little guitar has so much character that it would be criminal to drown it in processing.
The Retro-H really does deserve this much discussion; I swear it on my haircut. In my rock experience, electric guitars generally fall into one of three categories: #1 "it's trying to be a Fender!" You know what i'm talking about. Everyone makes a Strat copy, or a Strat copy with a humbucker in it, or a Strat copy that sounds more like a Telecaster. #2 "it's trying to be a Gibson!" Do I need to explain this one? #3 "novelty guitar!" This third category covers massive territory: generally novelty guitars are either really cheap or really expensive and have a very specific, exaggerated sound that makes them unique and interesting for sure, but totally unusable as a staple, play-it-every-day guitar. You may pull out your novelty guitar for a song or two, but it's never your baby - it has no hope of becoming the guitar you leave leaning up against the couch to pick up and play whenever you walk by it.
The Retro-H is part of a rare, highly-esteemed fourth category, a category which has no name. This kind of guitar has its own, unique signature sound, but is so versatile and unobtrusive that you can use it as your main axe. I'm no virtuoso, and I was able to coax tones out of that guitar I never would have expected from this kind of instrument - from warm, hollow sustains to crispy, angry chugs, to quirky, palm-muted chirps.
The word is out, my friends. If you strip away the pastel colors, the flower and heart shapes, and the estrogen-driven marketing push, DaisyRock still makes killer, legitimate rock and roll instruments for any gender.
