About the GRB Kokocaster

Surfcaster Heaven--The GRB Kokocaster
Surfcaster Heaven–The GRB Kokocaster                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Born out of the legal ash-heap that was the Charvel-Jackson Surfcaster, comes the GRB Kokocaster.  Surfcaster disciples weep when their treasured Surfys get stolen, lost, broken or are hastily given away in a moment of poor reflection, drunkenness or indebtedness.    Tears turn to anquish when scouring craigslist, ebay and gbase only turn up a few specimens selling for $2,000 or more.  To Rectify this condition, GRB has created this tribute model.  Absent the legal nuances, but retaining the full spirit and feel of the original, GRB has brought salvation to all Surfcaster owners who never thought they’d be able to play a Surfcaster again.  Roadworthy, stageworthy, selling for just $599 for the stoptail, and $699 for the tremolo, the GRB Kokocaster puts a Surfcaster Tribute into the hands of the ordinary working musician.
