New ideas in the guitar business are few and far between. As players, we really like our tradition; very little has changed in the last fifty years. Occasionally, however, a guitar comes along with the potential to become a true classic.
The visual power of the BLACKBIRD™ comes from its sheer simplicity. Black on the black body and binding, make the abalone trim pop out without seeming overwhelming. The simple pearl blocks add to the drama. The Blackbird is clearly a stage guitar, so the solid spruce top, combined with the maple sides and back, is a perfect pairing. The solid spruce top provides the power and tone, while maintaining clarity and definition. The maple sides and back enhance the balance and definition, while limiting the potential for feedback.
