Vintage Releases Gordon Giltrap Signature Electro-Acoustic Guitar

May 21, 2010
Leeds, UK (May 21, 2010) -- John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd., the worldwide trade distributors of Vintage brand instruments, announces the launch of the Vintage Gordon Giltrap Signature electro-acoustic guitar.



This crossover Grand Auditorium/000-style electro-acoustic is based on a hand-crafted instrument that Rob Armstrong made back in 1980 and Gordon plays today. Featuring a high-grade solid North American cedar top with mahogany back and sides the signature "small waist" body is complemented by Rob Armstrong's trademark headstock design.

The bridge is high-grade rosewood with a gradually compensated natural bone saddle, and the mahogany neck comes with a top-quality rosewood fingerboard with genuine abalone inlays and side dot markers.

Electronics are provided via a Fishman Presys Blend preamp and Sonicore pickup system, which features a built in-microphone with mic blend control, notch - anti feedback control, phase control button, three-band EQ and volume control, as well as a built-in guitar tuner with flip-top battery access.

Gordon's signature guitar is also being made available as a twelve-string instrument with the same specifications.
