Boston, MA (August 23, 2012) – Campbell American Guitars today announced the release of its latest model, the Space Biscuit. Drawing inspiration for the body shape from the guitars that guitarists of a certain age grew up playing as their “first guitar” the Space Biscuit would be right at home in George Jetson’s man-cave. Dean Campbell and his crew have vastly improved upon these early inspirational designs to create a very unique guitar that plays and feels like the custom designs many have come to expect from the Campbell American shop.
Living up to their “truly custom” approach to guitar building the Space Biscuit has the option of an Alder, Linden or Mahogany body. The guitar is outfitted with Campbell American Standard pickups built especially for the builder. The guitar also features a Hipshot bridge, Rosewood or maple fretboard with12.5 inch radius, 25-½ inch scale, Gotoh tuners and a Tusc nut. The electronics features CTS pots with two volume and tone controls and a three-way switch. As with all Campbell American guitars many standard colors are offered and custom colors are also available and all are finished with Nitrocellulose lacquer.
Each Space Biscuit is handmade by a small group of dedicated builders in the Campbell American shop in the Blackstone Valley in New England. "We waned to develop a guitar shape that felt familiar in a way but didn’t remind the players of any one particular guitar. We also wanted the shape and styling to be a little funky,” says Dean Campbell, President of Campbell American Guitars. "A unique feature of the The Space Biscuit is the harp shaped bridge that gives it a very unique style line”. The Space Biscuit is available to order now at all Campbell American dealers in the United States and internationally.
