Albert Leeуs 1958 Gibson Super 400
"Though never a household name, for five decades Albert Lee has established himself as one of the most talented and influential guitarists of all time. An absolutely phenomenal country picker, Albert came out of the fertile English guitar scene in the у60s and managed to put an indelible stamp on the most American of art formsяcountry music. Albert has worked with the Everly Brothers, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, and a host of others, but it was his mid-у70s tenure with Emmylou Harrisу band that really put him on the map. This incredible у58 Gibson Super 400 was Albertуs in the late у60s when he was a member of Chris Farlowe and the Thunderbirds. Itуs one of the most beautiful examples of this stunning model weуve ever seen. "

Electro-Harmonix is a giant among pedal builders. What’s inspiring about EHX is that they’ve never let that stature keep them from taking risks. Take the company’s keyboard- and synth-inspired pedals: the B9, KEY9, MEL9, and Synth9. Each has been a success, but none were sure-fire hits. Guitar-based synthesis at accessible consumer prices is not easy. Yet in each case, EHX created something playable and useful to guitarists. And if they didn’t always achieve perfect replication of the keyboard and synth instruments that inspired them, the pedals often prompted new ways of relating to a guitar and new possibilities in performance and composition. The S9 String Ensemble is among the most realized of these pedals. Its sounds are rich and creatively executed. And the pedal is compelling in the truest sense of the word: It makes it virtually impossible to not consider new songs, new arrangements, and new styles as you interact with it.
