Armand Schaubroeck Blues Guitar
The Gibson “Armand Schaubroeck Blues Guitar” is a guitar that was designed by Armand Schaubroeck to fuse the original Mississippi Delta Blues resonator sounds of the 1920s and 30s with the Chicago Electric Blues of the 1950s and 60s. The guitar was built by Gibson master luthier Ren Ferguson and boasts a highly flamed maple body and neck, ebony fingerboard with deluxe inlays and binding, gold hardware and Bigsby tailpiece. The guitar also features a Dobro spider resonator with a Fishman acoustic transducer pickup, active electronics and a single Gibson humbucker in the neck position with coil-tapping capability (accessible through the push-pull tone control). Wired for stereo, the guitar offers separate outputs for acoustic and electric pickups or a blend of both, stereo or mono.
