The ‘Raven’ is the latest guitar from the Paul Brett Series of popular and highly innovative acoustic/electro-acoustic guitars from Vintage.
Skilfully designed by Brett himself and inspired by an original Monarch acoustic, the Raven clearly expresses and highlights this English classic rock player’s love and immense knowledge for early acoustic guitars.
With a double bound acacia body, contrasting satin black finished solid Sitka spruce top, distinct headstock and soundhole design, the steel strung Raven evokes Gothic from all angles, themed and inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s poem from the same name.
With soft V profile mahogany neck, super smooth dressed frets and pau ferro fingerboard, the Vintage Raven electro-acoustic, almost plays itself and would look the part on any stage.
But with this fabulous tonewood combination, delivering a warm crisp resonant tone, the Raven (VRA900EA £329 rrp) is well suited and will also appeal to folk players, fingerpickers, singer songwriters, hardened blues guitarists or musicians who simply adore beautifully constructed, eye catching acoustic guitars that play and sound well above an unbelievable price tag.
Highlights also include smooth open geared machine heads, Graphtech Nubone nut and saddle and sonokeling bridge. A Vintage preamp with built in tuner, volume, 3 band eq and phase control with the under-saddle piezo pickup ensuring that the guitar’s natural tone is delivered uncoloured to external sources.
