Vintage 'Statesboro' Paul Brett 12 String Acoustic ~ Satin Antique Burst
Designed by 12-string guitarist and vintage guitar expert Paul Brett as a fitting tribute to the pioneering blues era of the 1930's and in particular, the legendary Blind Willie McTell, the Vintage V5000SB-12 Statesboro� oozes pure nostalgia from every pore. Featuring a solid spruce top, with maple back and mahogany sides elegantly mated to a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, the Statesboro�s rosewood bridge with bone saddle and bone nut provides excellent intonation and tone, with plenty of volume. �Using the designs of the legendary Stella guitars crafted by Oscar Schmidt in the early 20th century,� says Paul �Vintage and I have created a homage to the iconic model that Willie himself played. Obviously we have updated various elements to morph into todays market, but in essence, it looks like and certainly sounds like a big blues machine of that era.�
Available in both acoustic (V5000SB-12) and electro-acoustic models (VE5000SB-12 - with the addition of a Fishman PRO-REP-102 Rare Earth Humbucker soundhole pickup system) the Statesboro� is ideal for traditional blues pickers and is also able to handle many other styles and tunings, depending on string gauges. Supplied with Kinsman Hardshell case.
Paul Brett�s string gauge suggestions.
"On my Statesboro�I use 11 to 50's tuned down a tone but with the bass pair dropped to C. If i used heavier strings I would only tune down to B, never to concert pitch to avoid damaging the guitar". �
