There’s an aura of 1930's blues about the new Vintage Statesboro’ Whisky Sour Series of acoustic and electro-acoustic guitars, designed by English guitarist and blues historian Paul Brett.
Harken back to the Great Depression era in the USA, when so many classic songs were written about money problems and job losses, on what in reality, were just functional guitars amiss of luxurious appointments like exotic tonewoods, bindings or elaborate inlays.
The new Vintage Statesboro’ Whisky Sour acoustic and electro-acoustic guitars, (available in dreadnought, concert and parlour body sizes) all share the same ‘bluesman on a budget’ theme, looking authentically cool in a satin matt, Whisky Sour finish highlighting the natural grain pattern of the all-mahogany construction and subtle soundhole rosette.
It’s Paul Brett’s keen eye for design and expertise that’s cleverly created a series of acoustic and electro acoustic guitars, that not only have that ‘feel it in your bones’ innate blues emotion, there’s also a modern approach within playability and sound that amateur and professional players will appreciate.
The warm, crisp resonant tone of the handpicked mahogany for example and palm friendly neck profiles, smooth frets and a great action, make the Statesboro’ Whisky Sour Series acoustics not merely an emotionally inspiring thrill for blues players, they’re also well-suited to a wide range of playing styles.
Like all Statesboro’ acoustic and electro-acoustic guitars, the parlour model alone has a big sound and is perfect as a travel companion, while both dreadnought and concert models are also available as electro-acoustic guitars with single cutaway bodies and an additional Vintage preamp with controls for volume, bass, middle and treble, phase switch, tuner display and low battery indicator.
