Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
This guitar is great. It has a Graphtech nut and a bigsby. It almost never goes out of tune, even if you use the bigsby! The Rat Rod is also built like a tank. It can stand up to almost anything. If you use the bridge pickup and some OD, you can get amazing rock tones. You can use it for punk, rock, or metal. The neck pickup sounds great for blues. If you roll back the volume slightly on the neck pickup, you can also get amazing jazz tones! It also has a heavy duty kill switch which allows you to switch it off when your not playing for no noise, or do crazy kill switch tricks. The Normandy Rad Rod is a great guitar at a great price. I would recommend it any day.

    Ten Reasons to Own a Normandy Guitar

      The Look – From the classic arch top curves of the body, to the vintage Bigsby-vibrato tailpiece, to the distinctive rivets front and back, there is simply no other guitar like it.
      The Sound – The resonant, aircraft-grade aluminum body produces smooth, warm tones that ring true and long. Sustain is increased significantly when compared to that of a conventional wooden guitar body.
      The Feel –The Normandy weighs 8.6-pounds, which is roughly the same (or less) than most other electric guitars. It maintains perfect balance when on a strap, and is so accommodating that you may just be able to go at it all night.
      The Durability – This is a deceivingly solid piece of equipment. You may be able to snap the neck, but the body will stand up to the most aggressive punk-inspired outbursts.
      The Neck – Our maple-on-maple and rosewood-on-maple necks are shaped close to what you would find on an old-school jazz guitar – not too fat...not too thin.
      The Pickups – Normandy Old School-Humbuckers with Alnico 5 magnets are overwound to 12K ohms for higher output, powerful midrange and driving tone.
      The Craftsmanship – Normandy Guitars are made one at a time with quality and durability as our foremost concerns; they are built to stand the test of time from one gig to the next.
      The Finish – The Chrome guitar is triple-electroplated, the School Bus and Army Green guitars are powder coated using a special baked-on finish and the Candy Apple Metal Flake finishes are far superior to the standard paint, stain, or varnish typically found on guitars. Whatever the color, the appearance will outshine that of any guitar you've ever seen.
      The Service – Normandy offers a warranty against defective materials and workmanship for the life of the guitar (check with the vendor for details). Normandy takes pride in every one of their instruments playing its very best right out of the box.
      Add it all up – Custom, boutique styling and quality that every player can afford.
