Shawn Lane has been recognized as the fastest guitar player ever, but from our pointof view he was primarily a composer of melodies that deeply reached the soul.
For him we made a unique Excalibur guitar that features a flat fingerboard withprobably the lowest string action in guitar making history.
He played this guitar from the day he got it, until the day he sadly died in 2003.
We kindly thank his family that allowed us to make Shawn's signature guitar series.
Bumblefoot is THE guitarist of this new generation. He has inspired musicians worldwide, hascompletely overcome the guitar and is a very creative and prolific composer and arranger.
Presented here is his new Bfoot guitar. It features the pickup routing he designed and atremolo that rests on the body.
Bumblefoot's inventiveness made use of a sewing thimble as a bottle neck. It's beenconveniently placed on the guitar body so he can easily cover his finger.
Finally, to continue in unconventional style, this series has two different logos.
