Babicz Steven Wilson Exclusive
The BMG team thought you might like to know about a brand new and very special instrument arriving imminently at our sister store, The Acoustic Centre...
The Acoustic Centre • London • England - the exclusive UK & European stockist of Babicz Guitars - is pleased to announce that the inaugural production run of the Babicz Steven Wilson Signature Model is now available to pre-order on a strictly "first come, first served" basis.
Steven Wilson - erstwhile Porcupine Tree frontman, hugely successful solo artist and all-round "king of prog rock"- has long been a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of Babicz guitars, with the revolutionary Identity Series Dreadnought famously being his main acoustic instrument for over a decade.
To celebrate, the boldly experimental British artist was invited by Jeff Babicz, one of the USA's most forward thinking guitar builders, to help create a brand new signature instrument.
Based on Steven's preferred cutaway design and engineered to his exacting standards, the result is a striking guitar that combines slick good looks with consummate construction, superior performance and unparalleled versatility, employing the full complement of cutting edge Babicz innovations to maximum effect.
This model is the very same instrument that Steven Wilson currently uses on the current marathon world tour in support of his wildly acclaimed 2015 solo album, the soulful and immersive masterpiece, "Hand. Cannot. Erase.”
