Fishman Equipped Vintage Paul Brett Statesboro 12-String

The Rare Earth, which features a discrete onboard volume control, is respectful to the guitar’s acoustic tone

The guitar is the latest result of a collaboration between respected 12-string artist Paul Brett and the Vintage brand. Based on the ancient Oscar Schmid­t built Stella acoustic played by Blind Willie himself; the Statesboro features a solid Spruce top and maple back joined together with mahogany sides and finished in Satin Antique Burst. The neck is mahogany too, and comes topped with a slice of rosewood with 18 thin vintage frets, 12 of which are clear of the body.

The Statesboro is available without the Fishman pickup at £549 but Brett picked a great unit for his latest model. The Rare Earth, which features a discrete onboard volume control, is respectful to the guitar’s acoustic tone and, like us, you might enjoy adding some spooky reverb for some down at the era road fun at midnight. Turn your lights down low and soak up the atmosphere!
