John Abercrombie Signature Guitar by Brian Moore Custom Shop

The Brian Moore Custom Shop introduces the new John Abercrombie Signature Guitar.

Based on John's unique semi-hollow guitar, this new John Abercrombie Signature Guitar is meant for making guitar jazz statements as its namesake would.

The 24.75" scale guitar has a model number of DC/1P.13.USB made by Brian Moore Custom Shop. It has a Semi-Hollow Mahogany body, spruce top with a personalized E-Hole design. Features a mahogany set neck, with Gold Hardware and Sperzel Locking Tuners.

Electronics include Seymour Duncan pickups and a Tone Pros tunomatic bridge with a Graphtech Piezo.

For those that do not know, John Abercrombie is a respected guitar player and virtuoso in the Jazz genre. He is also a well known music teacher and he was one of the few guitar players who was brave enough to use guitar synthesizers and other unorthodox effects and methods.

So just like the guitars namesake, this guitar is not your everyday guitar. It has a built in 13 pin synth output and has its own patented iGuitar USB audio port. The 13 pin guitar synth output is compatible with the latest guitar synth products, including the Roland GR-55 and VG-99. It also connects to older synthesizers as long as it uses the 13 pin cable. This will allow you to access synthesizers and even notation and tablature software like Sibelius and Finale.

USB Port

The USB connection gives the guitar instant connectivity with comptuers. Its like having a built in audio interface straight into your guitar. You can just plug-in and open up your favorite virtual amplifier and DAW and record or jam away. It would have been way cooler if you could charge your iPhone through the USB port, but thats beside the point.

The guitar also features separate volume control and tone knobs for the Piezo pickup and the Magnetic Pickups, which means you can mix and match to your taste, and with the help of synthesizers, you are miles ahead in terms of tonal palette compared to traditional guitars.

Current retail price is a bit in the high end at $5595, if you have more money to spare, you can also have a special custom art on the guitar for an additional price of $1000.

Here is a demonstration of what the USB and 13 Pin synth output can do (not the same guitar):
