"There’s a large segment of the boutique guitar market that is filled with ”updated Strats” and ”expanded Les Pauls”. Those may be great instruments for the traditionally-minded guitarist, but many players would like to leave the beaten path.


This is where companies like Raato Custom Guitars come in, offering first-rate quality and plenty of custom options for the guitarist who needs the ultimate modern electric guitar.
