I'm excited to announce an extraordinary instrument that is being built for me by some good friends of mine. Since 2013, Tim and Nick Frank, of Frank Brothers Guitar Company, have been producing some of the most extraordinary guitars in the world. I've been fortunate to witness the progression of their business, and the transformation of their 'Signature Model' to the point at which it is now. I'm even more fortunate to be waiting on my very own FGBC guitar. As put by Westwood Music, the FBGC Signature Model "captures the quality and playability of the electric guitar era’s most venerable instruments with an original design distinctive of Frank Brothers." In essence, the brothers combine the best of old and new to create a masterclass instrument that pays homage to the classics of the 50s and 60s. Up until this point, the FBGC Sig Model was available in one basic form; though the future owner did have the ability to chose top and back woods, as well as the guitar's finish. Now available, and you heard it here first, is a variation to the original concept. The boys will be producing the same basic guitar but with P90s, a plain maple top, satin finished back and sides, unbound fretboard/headstock, Gotoh mini tuners, and brushed nickel hardware. The idea was to offer potential buyers a new guitar (that is still quintessential Frank Bros.), plus pass along a substantial cost savings. Features such as top and back woods, finish, electronics, etc... are still customizable. This will allow the lines between the original Sig Model, and the new model to be blurred. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to own the very first one. Included are some photos of the original design. If you're interested, stay tuned for updates on my guitar.
