Derek Trucks Signature Slide
Derek Trucks is a Grammy Award-winning player hailed as one of the greatest slide guitarists since Duane Allman, and was called one of the "New Guitar Gods" by Rolling Stone magazine.
If you're not familiar with Derek Trucks' playing, then you should be - just listen to the slide solo in this video to hear what I'm talking about.
Derek Trucks has taken modern slide playing far beyond his southern rock roots into jazz, Latin, and Indian music.
And now you can get in on the fun with the new Derek Trucks Signature Slide from Dunlop.
His constant companion on this musical journey, a medicine bottle slide, has been replicated as the Derek Trucks Signature Slide.
This classic slide delivers Derek's fluid and vocal style with a bright, cutting, and crisp tone.
I'm not claiming that owning one of these is suddenly going to make your slide solos sound as good as this example, but using one when you play is certainly a great way to honour a great guitarist.
So why am I telling you about this now when it was originally announced back a Winter NAMM?
Because it has just begun shipping, so you'll be able to find it in a store near you soon.
Although I haven't been able to find out what the official MSRP is, I did find it available on Amazon for a price of $40.80.
