John Hornby Skewes Introduces the Pilgrim Mayflower Deluxe VPG900N

Designed by highly respected UK luthier Paul Tebutt.

United Kingdom (March 12, 2015) -- Designed by highly respected UK luthier Paul Tebutt, the brand new Pilgrim Mayflower Deluxe VPG900N combines its distinctive contoured fibreglass back construction with a satin-finished solid cedar top with inlaid wood rosette, a mahogany/black-flamed maple neck with top-quality ebony fingerboard and burr walnut faced headstock. Its ebony bridge with bone saddle perfectly transfers an even tone accross the strings, whilst the bone nut and gold die cast machine heads provides accurate, solid tuning.

Also featuring a top-quality Fishman Presys+ onboard preamp and Sonicore pickup, with inbulit chromatic tuner, anti-feedback control, three-band EQ and phase control button, the Mayflower Deluxe sounds just as good as it looks both acoustically or through a PA system or backline.

In addition the Mayflower comes complete with a high quality padded Pilgrim carry bag to keep your guitar safe on the move.

UK RRP £409

So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
