Vintage Bretts get 2019 makeover

0

Vintage’s successful Paul Brett Signature 6 and 12 string acoustics are receiving a makeover for 2019. Both guitars are now equipped with a brand new Fishman pickup and equaliser, an externally accessed battery box, as well as a revitalised mixture of woods featuring a solid spruce top and acacia back and sides.

Designed by veteran acoustic guitar aficionado Paul Brett, the parlour sized VE880PB and VE880PB-12 are ideal for fingerpicking and folk strumming. Distributor JHS says: ‘Based on the iconic 1920s Weymann models, the VE880PB series exhibit incredible projection and a rich, detailed tone, allowing you to cover a vast amount of musical ground’.

Like its predecessor, the updated VE880PB features a solid spruce top, mahogany neck, pau ferro bridge and fingerboard, and gold tuners. New for 2019, is the inclusion of a Fishman Flex pickup and the VE880PB’s deluxe equaliser system with volume, treble and tone controls. Each instrument is sold with a hardshell carry case.
