About this deal

If you can hear something resembling a finger-piano tone in a Motown song, why not use the instrument for real? Chinery intended the project to be an homage both to D-Aquisto and to the artistry of the archtop guitar. While the amount of pickup options can seem overwhelming, some are favoured more than others by Brian. At the time it came out, there were a few harrowing interviews where Chris was thinking this would be the last music he made, due to cancer.

People suddenly found themselves in a completely different situation and this instantly influenced the Blues, the electric style, developed earlier on in Electric Memphis and Texas Blues, remained, however became harder and edgier, instruments like the saxophone were incorporated into the music and gave this new hybrid a sometimes jazzy feel.

The Blue Series is unbeatable in its class, mainly due to its solid wood construction and wide array of materials and body shapes, which offer a nearly inexhaustible combination of sound options. Bass guitars come in all shapes and sizes; housing different pickups, using different necks and equipped with a variety of hardware.

I had the honor of interviewing Rudy (and, soon, Scott’s widow) and gazing upon and picking a few tunes on the guitars. When the originally African and South-influenced Blues were brought to Louisiana, New Orleans, the Mississippi Delta, new instruments were added – clarinet, brass, piano, mandolins, accordions – and along with the banjo mingled into an interesting mix, which would be known as New Orleans, Swamp, Cajun or Riverboat Blues.The Blues was even swapping over into Reggae, but in spite of its "sunshine feeling" the themes and topics were just as sad. I read a story once which said that he wrote Driving Home for Christmas when he was doing just that - he'd just been dumped by his record label and was driving back to Middlesborough with his mrs, when he had the idea and wrote the song on the way. I'm very impressed with the build quality, all the details are flawless - it's a very fine guitar, and value for money is great.
