Campbell American Announces the WEW

WEW draws inspiration from the great contoured body double cutaway electric guitars of the 1950s and ''60s

Boston, MA (May 11, 2012) – Campbell American Guitars today announced the release of its latest model, the WEW. The WEW draws inspiration from the great contoured body double cutaway electric guitars of the 1950s and '60s and improves on these classic guitars in several important ways. Each WEW has ergonomic improvements that lead to a more enjoyable playing experience such as a full, round “C” neck carve and a 12” radius fretboard. The instrument has a 25 ½ inch scale neck and the body is carved from premium Northwestern Alder and is finished with 100% Nitro Cellulose lacquer.

Each WEW is handmade by a small group of dedicated builders in the Campbell American shop in the Blackstone Valley in New England. Just like all previous Campbell American guitars the WEW is truly a custom built instrument in that it can be built to suit each guitarist individual tastes. Guitarists can choose from a long list of “standard” colors but Campbell American can also develop custom colors as well. The guitar can be built using several different single coil pickup manufacturers including Jason Lollar, Lindy Fralin, Dimarzio, and others.

Walrus Audio Slötvå


Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.
