Description

Plays great, feels sturdy, stays in tune when you hit the tremolo bar and the options you get out of the switching system are sweet. Of course, to get even closer you'll want to factor in choice of pick (Brian favours old sixpence coins, sometimes fingers) effects (treble boost, delay, phaser, chorus) and amplifier (Vox AC30 with top boost, the Deacy amp) but this guitar is a substantial aspect to May's magic. Whether you’re into the cool, vintage look or you prefer the sleek metallic and modern fade finishes, you’ll find them here!

I'm very impressed with the build quality, all the details are flawless - it's a very fine guitar, and value for money is great.What I find somewhat interesting is that he achieves this with surprisingly ordinary gear - mostly Strats (Fenders and Squiers), Fender Blues Junior III (a pair of), a TubeScreamer, Boss delay, and Boss chorus.

From the undeniably classic pastel tones, to the deep blues that mimic the ocean as the natural wood grain peaks through, blue guitars just look great. At the time it came out, there were a few harrowing interviews where Chris was thinking this would be the last music he made, due to cancer. The eleven separate records which compose "Blue Guitars" could as well stand on their own; in combination, however, they provide a journey through the different epochs of the Blues, showing the various components that have been added to the original African Blues over time, the changes in instrumentation, style, lyrical expression and thematic implications. albums took me the best part of a year to work through them all a few times and pick out what I liked and was less fussed over. The Blue Guitars album, packaged as a box set in the style of an earbook, [1] consists of eleven CDs, one DVD and a full colour book, including paintings by the artist, liner notes and song lyrics.Engineered with a decidedly contemporary feel, and considerably less deeply contoured than the somewhat gargantuan proportions of the iconic original, the glued-in mahogany neck sports a generous 45mm nut width, comfortably spacious "D" profile, and wonderfully smooth 24 fret ebony fingerboard. I attended the Smithsonian's opening reception (and got John Monteleone to sign my Blue Guitar book). The Blue Guitar Collection was displayed at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History from November 11th 1997 through October 1998.

However he also appears to be someone who not only loves the blues but also somebody who understands its history and respects the heritage more than most.
